Here’s the State of Love On Facebook
Among single people, 78% list themselves as single, 14% don’t list a status, and the other 8% lie by saying they’re in a relationship.
People who are dating but not engaged are the only ones who reported using the “it’s complicated” choice. 6% have their relationship status as “it’s complicated.”
3% of people who are engaged list themselves as single. So do 1% of married people.
For people who say they’re in a relationship but don’t list the person’s name, the main reasons are privacy and crazy exes.
55% of the people surveyed plan on going on a date tonight, or having a night in with their significant other. 6% are planning on having a first date. 22% will spend time with their friends and 12% are not planning on celebrating at all. (The remaining 5% responded with “other”.)
