Dating used to be relatively simple. You went on a few dates, became a couple, eventually broke up, and that was that. Now, thanks to the ubiquitous third wheel, Facebook, there are a few more steps: checking out your date’s profile for red flags, having the awkward “but are we Facebook official?” conversation, and keeping an eye on (er, stalking) your ex’s posts for signs of a new girlfriend, to name a few.
