If there’s two things Ali Fedotowsky knows something about, it’s dating and social networking. And now, the former Bachelorette is helping you learn the rules of the road when it comes to mixing relationships and Facebook. Read on for some of Ali’s tips!
Ali Fedotowsky of ABC’s The Bachelorette knows quite a bit about dating. And although she’s currently happily engaged to Roberto Martinez, and almost officially off the market, the former employee of Facebook recently dished with Glamour magazine, offering tips on how to handle dating in a social networking-driven society.
Ali tells Glamour that her first rule is not to define your relationship online unless you’re stable and committed, especially if you’re constantly breaking up and making up all the time. According to Ali, by not posting your status, as tempting as it may be, you can avoid the drama of having to always explain your relationship issues to all 500 of your so-called friends.
Another one of Ali’s rules: If you’re breaking up, don’t change your status to single until you’ve had a face-to-face with your soon-to-be ex. Ali adds that you should either give your ex a heads up to let them know you’re changing your status, or just take your status down for awhile, until the news has been out for at least a couple of weeks.
Ali’s third relationship rule is to de-friend any ex whose profile you find yourself checking daily–especially if you’re in another relationship. In her words, “Deep in your gut you know whether or not you should be friends with your ex on Facebook–plain and simple.”
