WHAT Would You Do?

My very dear friend's husband has a Facebook profile. He lists himself as Father of 3 kids and SINGLE when he is Married to my friend. He is "looking" for female friendships.

Should I tell her about it, or let it go? What would you do?

  • I would want to know that my husband was making me look like a fool, yes, tell her.
    Another example of why Facebook isn't for married people!!!!!!!

  • I would just send him a fb message asking casually if he noticed that his profile says he's single. See what he answers. He may not even know since that is the default setting for everyone.

  • If he is anything like my DH..he doesn't know what his profile said. Mine DH's said he was single and looking for men lol. He was so embarrassed when I told him.

  • If it comes up say something if not it will come out somehow. Or just act dumb ask her if you can borrow her computer to check your facebook and say you stumbled on her dh's name. GL

  • have them over for dinner and in a light mannor say "Oh Bill I think you goofed on your facebook status... said you were married and looking... ((laugh))... better fix that or people will start to talk " very lighthearted an in an innocent tone.

  • It could be an honest mistake on his part. A lot of times things like that are missed when people are updating their profile. I would write him a message on FB and ask "Why?" Just to see his reaction. I do agree with Jeffsbaby1 though. However, I wouldn't bring it up in an accusing manner. Just as a casual, silly thing he forgot to change. You know? If you see any other reason to believe otherwise then say something, but really it could be an honest mistake.

  • eh just tell her or at least tell her to check his profile because you thought it was rather strange...then show it to her...

  • I wouldn't honestly see it as a big deal. So, I wouldn't see a reason to tell her. But if you see it as a big deal, then you should bring it up to her. If it was me & my DH, I wouldn't care, so I wouldn't see a need for someone to tell me... But different people feel differently.
