Every time I see a relationship status (on FB) go from "engaged" or "in a relationship" to "single", I "LIKE" their status. I want to congratulate them! I usually just say "good thing or bad thing?".... but I remember being in shitty drama-filled relationships and was always so happy to get out of them. Even if I didn't know it at the time, it was a relief.

So, "LIKING" a changed-to-single relationship status.. appropriate, or not?

I'd say it's only "appropriate" if the person is happy about it...   if they aren't, they might just think you're being a bitch (even if you meant it in a good way.)

i do it for my poor SIL because she goes from single to in a relationship and she's all kinds of happy and in love and talking about marriage and babies, then he always dumps her. (i think he's getting scared off actually) *he is every other man she's dated* then she'll get a gf and do the same thing. i'm just trying to encourage her when she's happy.

ETA: and she is happy right afterwards it's always "i dont need a man, he wasn't worth my time" so when she is saying that at the same time, yes i "like" it.

I said only if you know they're happy about it.  I have quite a few friends recently who are in the midst of getting or on the verge of getting divorced...those "single" statuses (stati?  what is the plural of status?!) I liked because I knew they were happy about it.  However, I have had friends who have been in relationships that ended and they were devastated about it, so I would comment with a "dislike button needed!" and some comforting words.

When my best friend changed her status from "in a relationship" to "single" some of us sang the words to Beyonce's Single Ladies.  hahahahaha

It depends on who the person is actually.

i think it also depends largely on how well i know the person...i have commented or "liked" the relationship status before but only if i really know the person quite well...

I would have asked 1st how they felt before I said I liked it.

I would only "like" if I knew they were happy about it. They could still be hurting or devastated. Personally if you pressed my changed relationship status to "Single" I would THANK YOU for it :) But a lot of people don't see it that way. Some relationships end in bad ways and they just want to be consoled.
