About This Quiz

There's something about becoming "Facebook official" with your guy or gal that feels monumental. Announcing to 1,000 of your closest friends and family that you have a new flame in your life prompts a sense of confidence and excitement. What will people think? Will my friends be happy for me? Will my ex be jealous? You're not only opening up your relationship to praise and celebration, but you are also allowing others to criticize you and your love interest.

Before becoming Facebook official, it's important to self-reflect about why you want to do so, as well as speak with your partner about it. If one of you is ready and the other is not, it could lead to a premature breakup, and nobody wants to have to update their status to "Single" a week after making such a big announcement. We know there are some of you out there who have been ready to be "FBO" for quite some time, but there are others who should take one more look at their honey and run in the opposite direction. Should you announce to the world that you're in a committed relationship, or should you dodge a bullet? Take this quiz, and we'll tell you how long 'til you're ready to be Facebook official!
