About This Quiz

Throughout history, there have been many ways to indicate that you're in a relationship with someone, from bluntly announcing "I'm dating so-and-so" to tucking your hand into the back pocket of their jeans. Some people flood their Instagram feed with pictures of themselves and their sweetie, while others have a bad case of mention-itis, i.e., they can't stop mentioning their loved one's name! But nowadays, if you really want to know if someone is in a relationship, check their Facebook page. You can find out whether they're divorced, married, separated, in a relationship, single ... the list goes on and on. 

Facebook even offers noncommittal relationship statuses for those who need them, including the perennially popular "it's complicated" as well as the mysterious "--". However, this quiz is about Facebook's "in a relationship" option. When two people who are dating change their relationship status from "single" to "in a relationship", this action is known as "going Facebook Official", because it lets your family, friends and acquaintances know that you're no longer interested in dating other people. The time it takes for your relationship to hit this seemingly trivial milestone can actually say a lot about how you and your partner feel about each other, your personal boundaries, your commitment issues and more. After all, if your relationship ends, you'll have to change that status back again, which can be a daunting prospect!

So, how long did it take for your relationship to go Facebook Official, and what does that say about you? Play this quiz to find out!
