Wanted: Girlfriend/Boyfriend

The title seems familiar right? A lot of teens in facebook are really posting that one in their status as if a relationship is somewhat like a job-hunting activity. I really find this stupid and non-sense for there is no genuine relationship that can be establish in that desperate desire to have a partner. Its like also advertising their self to the whole world that they can have a relationship by just responding to that. What do you think?

That happens in virtual world, people feel more comfortable to express themselves on internet.If you approach a girl or guy in real life and if he/she is not interested there are high chances that you will be rejected rudely, possibly a public humiliation too.Over internet you can flirt freely and write anything you want without caring for consequences.Overall this relationship thing is too hyped among teens anyways.A teenager in junior college told me that his friends call him loser since he is single,its non sense for sure, i completely agree.

They're understandably young. I think it's the pressure that's getting to them. They feel left out without having experienced a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship that it may feel like a race to most of them. I wasn't pressured in those times back in high school. I guess I was a late bloomer. I do notice in this generation of young teens there seems to be a growing number of young girls getting pregnant and end up being single moms.

They are really pretty energetic when it comes to having relationships and they wanted it quick and instant which I find disturbing.

Yes i want a girlfriend but not found yet. I use Facebook to talk with other person and make lots of friends but still i am alone. Finding girlfriend is not too easy as people think. If you need a real and true love then you have to do work hard or you can find someone to just pass the time. So good luck guys.

I think pathetic and desperate people would only do such things like this. They are seeking attention that's why they are posting like this.

I think it's a great idea. While there are some people that will abuse the concept, I think for most it's ands open and honest way of expressing, up front, what they are looking for. There's no subterfuge, just people reaching out to others using available social media. Waiting for someone to turn up out of the blue then spending months getting to know them only to realise you are wasting your time can be soul destroying. By stating you are looking for a romantic friend, you already know that the other person is also looking for the same thing. People using the above idea will know exactly where they stand and they can get off on the right foot and hopefully, find their life partner if that's what they want.

I think when we are young we think love is perfect and the best thing on Earth. I feel like they think they should have a b/f or g/f to fit in with other people their age. It is silly to us, since we are grown but to them they think this is the way to do things... Once they get older they will realize doing this is really silly and will not help them get into a real relationship.

It's a very desperate act. Well forgive me if I am old enough that I can't understand childish gimmicks. But it seems to be very desperate for the person to write that way. Well, they can say it's for fun. But to some it doesn't sound funny at all :) Just "hide" that status on your news feed:P

Hello, kenshin! I do find it a bit "cheap" really. I hope nobody gets mad at me in saying this. But if they really want to have a partner in life, they should just allow that to happen and not look for them. I mean, wouldn't it be a nicer feeling if you happen to meet a great lady by chance?

for sure most of the people are just getting addicted to facebook only for this reason and most part of the time they are always there and making some good partners

I would say that some people joined social network sites for one purpose only. That is to find a partner. I personally don't think it's a good idea to search for partner on these sites. One reason is the person would not be able to get to know the person in real. It is also dangerous when you don't know who you are really dealing with. This may put one into serious risk.

I guess there are just trying to catch up attentions so that they are looking for boyfriend or girlfriend. Yes it is stupid or non-sense but I think there just to young to understand what they are saying. I had my first boyfriend when Im in college but my ex boyfriend court me at our house. That was my parents want. Most of teenagers now are so liberated or advance in anything.

I havan't seen this maybe in my coutry is not popular yet. But it's bad that kids this days think that it's more important to change their relationship status to in a realationship than to find someone who trully matters.
