As frivolous as this sounds because it's Facebook, when do you think is an appropriate time to add each other on Facebook when you date?
A) before first date
B) after 1-2 dates
C) 3-4 dates
D) 5 or more dates
E) when the relationship starts
Im sure it'll be different for each person but I just wanna get some perspective because some people I'd date would add me early on and I used to ask but I don't anymore because if shit goes sour, it'd be awkward and there's been times where I'm not sure about the person yet. I mean it's good in the sense that you know the person is who they say they are but if you keep them as Facebook friends and you date someone else or they do, it's be awkward and they're still in your life to an extent.
Personally I'm starting to think it's best when things get serious. There's no right or wrong answer to this by the way.

Oh goodness... I recently met a guy at a concert, we had a great conversation and friended each other later that night. Been talking a lot, hung out a few times. Now we're going to give dating a shot, but if it doesn't work out we will remain friends. This guy and I mesh so well too, it's very easygoing and we're straightforward and honest, so that's a factor.
I don't think it's so black and white this day in age with social media and all. I would believe it would be ideal to date for a month and friend each other. But then again, wouldn't you want insight to what the person is like as soon as you could get it? Trust your gut, and if it feels right it feels right. Also, there was a study done that determines a relationship isn't socially accepted as "legitimate" until the relationship status changes to "In a Relationship" on Facebook.0
