How to change or hide your MySpace or Facebook relationship status

by mssinglemama on January 3, 2008


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.

To HIDE your relationship status on MySpace:

[NOTE: This code messes up some MySpace pages, if you have a better code please leave it in the comment section]

1. In the Heroes section enter: <table><tr><td><table><tr><td>

2. At the top of the About Me section enter: <style>.hidethem {visibility:hidden; display:none;}</style>

[NOTE: This code messes up some MySpace pages, leave a comment if you figure out how to use it correctly]

To change your relationship status on Facebook:

1. Click the small edit icon right next to your profile icon.

2. Click relationships and change. Easy again.

To HIDE your relationships status on Facebook:

1. Click the small edit icon righ next to your profile icon.

2. Click relationships.

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.

marital status, sexual orientation the whole lot

does any 1 know a code for that??

that 1 above didnt work for me


Tony October 28, 2008 at 6:48 pm

It worked for me but messed up the rest of my layout. The boxes on the right column of the layout started 3/4 of the way down the page instead of at the top. Although it did hide my personal status type information.

Any suggestions on why it messed up my layout?


mssinglemama October 28, 2008 at 7:11 pm

Tony – I’m not sure… here is another website with more answers on how to hide your MySpace Relationship Status, she doesn’t have an answer yet but says she’ll update it when she does:


Dick February 3, 2015 at 4:23 am

something worth considering is that you can GROW? whole foods. you cnaont grow processed foods. for that case alone, it is most definitely the cheapest option. every region has its own set of whole foods that grow easily naturally. education, such as videos like these and books on urban agriculture, are priceless for those in need of healthy foods on a budget. i can go to a store and buy ORGANIC snacks for a day, all whole foods, and my snacks and lunch for the day is about $5-7. reasonable

It’s typical American prgnpoaada BS is what it is. You want to know why other countries call America the dumbest? country?

someone put my name on his relationship status, how do I stop the person from putting my name on his relationship status on facebook?


A.M March 24, 2011 at 1:00 am

Actually you need to go to edit profile and then to Featured people. Right on the top of the page you’d find “Relationship Status” and you can choose from thre.

Job interview tips October 18, 2013 at 10:28 am

For many who have managerial or supervisory experience, maybe you are
tempted to include testimonies absolutely from higherups.
This really is outstanding advice, however
you may take it farther by including comments out of your subordinates.

Prepare for phone interviews within exactly the same fashion which you would face-to-face interviews.
You should have the capability to reveal your self at
a span for several minutes, and describe how most readily useful you match what they’re looking for.
This may allow it to be much more likely you
will end up allowed an interview, which may
result in a job.

It is a thing that you’ll be likely to be expected in a interview, so ensure
you know very well what you need to say!

Just abandon it entirely from your cv, in case you are ashamed of
something about your own personal past instead of lying about this.
You just can’t know if/when the reality will be detected by a potential
