#943 What you want when you want it
Tuesday 29th March, 2011
Ian, yours is the kind of dilemma that is precisely why I do not do relationship status’s. Oh, the horror. All that knowledge out there in the ether for all to revel at. Ghastly.
For the record, your partner is quite right. You should change your status from ‘single’. I recommend ‘it’s complicated’, or ‘divorced’. That should get his attention.
I don’t know a lot about this state of affairs ‘being common‘, but I would add this – Yes, he IS trying to block you in. You’re that much hot stuff that he wants you all to himself. Especially for those times of day when he is not Gaydar.
Any site who’s tag line is ‘what you want, when you want it‘ has got to be an accurate indicator of our socially ambivalent times in terms of attention spans. What’s that? you’re not ‘in a relationship’ on Facebook – oh, well then I’m heading on over to my pals on Gaydar, byeeeee love!
Look, a bit of pre-empting is required for this field of fun. First a relationship update / announcement and editing of your Profile page. What about you are ‘in a relationship’ with said beau when you can update your status from the happy confines of the sofa, but then ‘its complicated’ when He’s on Gaydar. Mind, this could ensure that you are updating your status every other moment of the day – depending on how often your other half wants ‘what he wants, when he wants it‘. If only Waitrose offered the same service. Hello vegetables!
Cleverer would be to de/unfriend him on Facebook and go about stalking his ‘hot boy’ stuff on Gaydar.
More of a pronouncement would be to suggest that you are a Married man with three off-spring. That should close down his relationship requests for at least 24hours, or until the broadband falters and he can’t get access to Gaydar anymore. Acredit yourself with some smartness (you do read this blog afterall) and counter any of his ‘block in’ measures with the sheer enjoyment of being able to wind him via any Social Network Site.
