Hi everyone.

I am interested in some opinions on this subject.

How much credibility should we give to what friends post on Facebook?

For example, if your friend updates his status from "Single" to "In a Relationship" does this really mean he is committed to his girlfriend and in a serious relationship with her? And, why, after almost a year did he change his status if he was "In a Relationship" all that time?

We are friends but he led me to believe he had feelings for me and was not into this girl seriously but then changed his status. I just wonder if now this means there is no hope and to forget about any chance I thought I might have with him.

What are your thoughts?

ilovemycrazykittykat agony auntI know the answer, just needed to hear it, I guess.

To So Very Confused: I told him straight to his face, he cannot flirt with me and manipulate me when he has a girlfriend. I am nobody's second choice or scaps and I told him I am better than that and value myself. So, yeah, I've got some self respect.

BUT some history is we were friends long before she came along. He had feelings for me but I was married at the time and in the process of leaving my marriage. He did not want to get in the middle, give me my space and did not think I would be ready to get involved so he decided to start dating her. All the while he has carried on this friendship with me and had feelings for me all along.

Just wish it could have turned out differently because he has my heart. : (

So_Very_Confused agony aunthe is a friend with a GF what made you think you had a chance to begin with?

do you really want a man who cheats on a gf to be your boyfriend?

IF i found out my guy was listed on facebook as single and was talking that he was talking so much to some other woman that she thought she might have a chance with him, I'd lay down the law.... make him change his status and get rid of this so called "friend" (you)

he may continue to talk to you but I'm betting he's lying to his GF about it... and I'm wondering even if he left her for you would you ever trust him?

have some self-respect and congratulate him on his new status and wish him well... and move on...
