We all Facebook stalk…especially when it comes to our crushes. So you’re probably wondering what, exactly, does his Facebook page say about him?
Some things are obvious. If it says he’s interested in men, sorry gURL, but you’re barking up the wrong tree. If you disagree with his political views and taste in music, movies and television programs, you’re either going to hate each other or have a very argumentative relationship. (And some people dig that drama!) But there are a couple more things that you may to read between the lines for.
If it says he’s “in a relationship”:
- Is there a name listed? Click and see if you can view her profile. If there are tons of pictures and comments between the two of them, he’s obviously taken. Either move on or wait. (If that’s really what you want.)
- If no name is listed, he may want stalkers people to respect his privacy. Look for multiple comments from the same gURL and see his responses. If one person is dominating his page, that’s probably his gURLfriend. (Sorry!)
- If it says “married to” or “engaged” and you know for a fact he’s not either, it may be a joke. Use your sleuthing skills and common sense to sort that one out.
Pictures are worth a thousand words. Here are a few things to glean from his picture. If he’s:
- Hugging, cuddling, or doing that prom picture stance with a gURL — he’s with her.
- Drinking or smoking or holding a red cup — he’s a party boy. Beware.
- With a group of gURLs — he’s either a player or has a LOT of female friends. If you’re easily jealous, this may not be the best choice.
- Nowhere in the picture, but instead it’s a photo of his car, his dream car, his XBox or his dog — he cares about these things. A LOT. Perhaps more than you. Are you willing to be with someone who puts their gaming console first?
Check out his “Fan Pages” and “Likes.”
- Do his musical tastes align with yours? Or will you guys always fight over the radio dial?
- If he doesn’t mind indulging in guilty obsessions (e.g. Rambo or Sugar Ray), that means he’s actually pretty open and likes to have fun. Plus, it gives you great conversation starters…
- No fan or like pages? He’s probably not that into branded stuff is looking for more relationship-y type connections online.
There are a couple of other things you can tease out from his Facebook.
- Are there a lot of spelling errors and typos? That means he didn’t put a lot of thought into his answers. He may have been rushed, doesn’t like writing (bad for those gURLS who love to text)…or he’s not very smart.
- Are his parents listed under the “family” section? Then he’ll probably keep his profile squeaky clean, since he knows the ‘rents are reading everything. Better send a personal message if you’re interested!
- Is he still friends with his exes? That can be good or bad, depending on how he interacts with them. Again, use your common sense and a little intuition to figure out if he’s the kind of guy who can stay friends with his exes, or if he’s keeping them as a back-up plan (i.e. booty call).
