Love Quotes for Facebook

Love Quotes for Facebook

The popularity of social networking sites has definitely made flirting and dating a lot different from traditional practices. These quotations, taken from various sources including Facebook status messages, poems, and other quotations illustrate how one-liners sometimes pack more punch than a full essay or declaration of affection for someone.

Let's start with the act of clicking the Like button to denote approval, admiration, and sometimes, even a subtle hint that you actually dig a certain Facebook contact. Additionally, you can also put this quote from the writer Agatha Christie as a status message (especially after seeing funny photos of your Facebook crush!) to give a clue how you feel about them:

It's a curious thought, but it's only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them.

A Facebook relationship status allows for people in your Friends list to celebrate, commiserate, or sympathize whenever you announce that you are In a Relationship or have suddenly become single, engaged, or married. However, declaring the state of your relationship (or lack of it) is not necessary or mandatory. You can always quote French critic Charles du Bois and declare the following sentence:

“Love does not care to define and is never in a hurry to do so.”

Love Quotes for Facebook

Cheesiness is perfectly excusable in Facebook status messages, especially to denote events worth celebrating, such as getting engaged to someone. The following are actual Facebook status messages that come with announcements of engagement:

Love is the emblem of eternity: it confounds all notion of time:
effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end.

-Swiss author Germaine de Staël

love quotes for facebook

Upload a digital photo, have it engraved in gold and put into a locket. What a lovely gift for that special person in your life

And this one, from an anonymous source (which is perfectly understandable given the nature of the status message): A man in love is incomplete until he is married. Then he’s finished.

There are even funny commentaries about the lives of people in long-term relationships, such as this hilarious one from a real Facebook status (which got nearly a hundred Likes in a little over five minutes!):

They say couples should never go to bed angry. That’s why married people always look so tired.

There are Facebook status messages that announce a couple's breakup as well. Some are meant to empower and give an impression that a lesson has been learned, such as this one from romance novelist Victoria Holt:

"Never regret. If it's good, it's wonderful. If it's bad, it's experience."

There are also some that are bittersweet but succinct, such as this quote from English writer GK Chesterton: If you are afraid of loneliness, don't marry.

Facebook has also undeniably piqued the imagination of creative people when it comes to creating love and friendship quotes in the popular social network. One group called Facebook Haiku Forum yields this certain literary gem about making new friends:

A friend request pings
Can my life hold more friendships?
Five hundred is lots.
