I can’t ignore this anymore. A few months ago I wrote an entry on how social networking has changed the face of dating. This entry was inspired by my boyfriend’s sudden and rather shocking announcement to me in bed that he’d changed his relationship status on Facebook. This entry alone has pointed hundreds of people to my site – all searching under these terms, “how to change my relationship status on Facebook/MySpace.”

So I thought it my duty to give them the answer. Here you go all of you newly single or newly tied up virtual world fans…

To change your relationship status on MySpace:

1. Go to Background & Lifestyle

2. And – whalah – you’re there. Sounds so easy but filing your relationship under “background and lifestyle” can be a bit misleading. The first time I had to change my status on MySpace it took me at least 15 minutes to figure it out…I was scrolling through every tab – so frustrating. Anyway there you go.

3. Choose select status: – then it leaves it blank on your profile page.

P.S. I figured this out after my boyfriend and I broke up – then got back together again. After our reconciliation he just didn’t list his status. He’s smart…that’s why I like him.
