Thanks for the update

Facebook users have been inviting us into their personal lives since the site hit the Web in February of 2004. No secret is too big to post. Especially when it comes to the one thing everyone is dying to know about, your love life.The Urban Dictionary defines a relationship as “the ability to put up with someone else’s bullshit, usually of the opposite sex, for a long period of time.”

“OMG! Did you hear Melissa dumped Greg,” one friend wrote on another’s wall.

This prompted several responses from other users who were eager to hear the details.

“No way. What? Why?” posted another friend.

Of course after being sucked into the love triangle you just have to look at Melissa and Greg’s page. Greg is now single, according to his most recent update with an icon of a tiny red heart next to it.

“Dude sorry bro,” wrote one user.

For this Facebook couple, six years of each other’s “bullshit” proved to be too much.

But what about those struggling to keep the spark alive?
