It seems like one of the most important parts of your Facebook profile is your relationship status.

After all, it's one of the first things people seem to ask you about.

Most people don't mind listing it, even with all the drama it sometimes causes.

Personally, I say you don't have to list your relationship status on Facebook if you don't want to.

In fact, there are some very good reasons not to.

1. Your Partner's Not on Facebook

I'm one of those oddballs who is with a guy that's not on Facebook.

I proudly listed my relationship status and even have pictures up of the two of us.

The majority of people didn't believe me at first.

Apparently, you can only be with someone who also has a Facebook account.

While I still have my status up, I'd recommend skipping it completely and avoiding the inevitable 20 questions as to whether your partner actually exists.

2. You're Not Interested in Dating

Anyone who has a relationship status of β€œSingle” has probably experienced the barrage of unwanted attention.2

Facebook isn't a dating site.

However, that one status seems to mean you're desperate for someone to date.

Believe me, people get angry when you turn them down.2

After all, if you're single, you should want to date everyone who asks you out, right?

That's a resounding no.

Sometimes you're just happy being single.

3. Eliminate Busy Bodies

I hate it when I see others getting involved in other people's relationships.

This is one of the main reasons not to list your relationship status on Facebook.

It seems like everyone has an opinion and they need to know every detail of your relationship.

This usually happens most when you change your relationship status.

If you don't want to deal with all the questions and general busy bodies, just leave your status blank.

It'll be a lot easier that way.
