Do you congratulate people for getting into a new relationship?

If you do... why?

My relationship status on Facebook just changed, and a bunch of my friends congratulated me on it. I feel super awkward now, haha. So I'm just wondering why you'd say congratulations for something like that?

  • Some because they are happy for you. Some to prove they are not jealous when they are. Some thinks its a social duty lol I don't anyway

  • those are people who wished they were in your shoes. or men who tried to tackle you but end up failing. it's some psychological defense. people will tend to "feel happy for another" but that is bullshit. if you don't believe me, if there are guys who congratulated you, they will typically be the ones who strike up small conversations with you on Facebook chat.

  • Honestly and this is gonna make me sound rude but no. I've always been single so why should I give someone I hardly no a congratulations when I can't get a Girlfriend? If I can't be happy why should I be happy for others I don't know? Same goes with family.

  • I wonder what they say when you change your status back to single lol... they may mean well, but to me it always seem to imply "finaaaalllyyy"

    No, I only congratulate when they say they're married/engaged.

    • Yeah, their intentions are probably nice, but the implication is just like you said, haha. It's almost a little insulting, lol.
