One of my favorite movies is When Harry Met Sally. While I believe most of the lines are quotable (and I do), one conversation from the movie in particular I like is this:
Harry Burns: You take someone to the airport, it’s clearly the beginning of the relationship. That’s why I have never taken anyone to the airport at the beginning of a relationship.
Sally Albright: Why?
Harry Burns: Because eventually things move on and you don’t take someone to the airport and I never wanted anyone to say to me, ‘How come you never take me to the airport anymore?’
Sally Albright: Its amazing. You look like a normal person but actually you are the angel of death.
My friends and I were talking about how people have their relationship status listed on Facebook. We were against it for the most part. Our arguments with it mostly had to do with privacy and the like. And of course, really, if someone would like to know, they could just ask.
While that is one of the reasons I stopped listing my relationship status, the main reason is like Harry’s above. I never want anyone to say to me “How come you’re not listed as in a relationship with me on Facebook?”
If that makes me the angel of death, then so be it.
