Hi All, What's your opinion about changing your profile pic on social networking sites to a picture with your GF just because she keeps on bugging you about it? I'm not really big on social networking. And since it's my profile, the picture posted should be mine.

I will tell you from my point of view. I don't want anyone in my profile picture on Facebook because it's MINE, but I do love having a pic of us in other photos. I find it sort of controlling for someone to try to force the issue about that.

I agree with you. I don't mind posting our pictures. I just don't wanna mess with my profile pic.

I am too private to have a picture of me and my beau on Facebook. Plus, most of my beau's don't last that long anyway, so it seems like more of a hassle than it's worth. I have friends though that would change around their entire layout on their Facebook OR MySpace (back when it was IN) every time they got a new boyfriend. And then when they would break up a few weeks later ,they would have to delete all of the pictures and start all over with the new boy. *rolls eyes*. Seems like a waste of time to me!

I see that a lot. They posts different pictures of themselves then they spend the whole night deleting those after break-up.

I agree with you. Thankfully my gf doesn't care much about my profile :) I guess when partners do so, is like how dogs do, they try to mark their area :P

Yeah. Sometimes, they even make a big deal out of it.

I don't think it is necessary to post a pic of you and your lover on any profile, unless you want to of course. In my honest opinion though, it should be necessary to change your status to in a relationship with so and so IF requested. I find that some of my friends complain about their lovers not accepting their request to change their status. Are they ashamed of them? Or ashamed to be seen with them? Or how about they want to look single for the world to ravage them?

Thank you for the reply. I also think it's a little awkward to have another person's face on my supposedly profile picture.

Why is she so insecure? And why are you against it? You know with women most things are a test. Why not just do it and change it after a while. She is probably gauging your reaction. And so far you are failing.

Same here. I don't mind if my boyfriend will post our picture in his profile but me even without his consent I am posting our picture in my profile and sometimes change it and then change again. haha lol. but here, i have a question. what do you think would be the reaction of my boyfriend if i change my relationship status from single to in a relationship and then invite him to accept it? do u think he will accept that? how would he react? because weve been 3 years already but our facebook has no relationship status I mean what stated there is only "single"?

It's better to stick with what you want not what your partner wants. If she/he asks you to put a picture of you together ask her/him why is it that important. My husbands profile picture for his social network page for two years was his face alone. I didn't ask him to change it to a picture of us together because I respect his decision and its his page. As long as his status was in a relationship that time that's enough for me.

well actually it really doesnt matter if my bf wont change his profile pic... but its also flattering and nice if my bf will change his pro pic... but i just gave my bf the right to do whatever he wanted to do with his propic...its up to him..

I agree, it should be your picture because it's your profile. I think for them it's a sign that you don't care enough to include her in EVERY SINGLE ASPECT OF YOUR LIFE. I really don't like it when that happens. You should try talking to her about it, and explain. If she doesn't understand do what you think is right. If you relationship is great and that picture is the only thing she bugs you about you can consider changing it.
