Facebook enables you to keep in touch with your friends, family and loved ones. If you're in a relationship with a person who has a Facebook account, you can enter a relationship on Facebook and let your friends know about it. If your partner changes his relationship status from his Timeline to state that he is in a relationship with you, you must confirm the relationship before it appears on your profile.

Step 1

Navigate to Facebook, log in to your account and click your name in the top left corner of the page to navigate to your Timeline.

Step 2

Click the "About" link to visit the About page and then click the "Edit" button in the Basic Info section.

Step 3

Locate the "You have a relationship request from..." line in the Relationship Status section and click the "View relationship request" link.

Locate the "Would you like to confirm your relationship with..." line and click the "Confirm" button to confirm the Facebook relationship.


  • Alternatively, you can navigate directly to the Facebook Requests page (link in Resources) to view all requests, including relationship requests. You can change your Facebook relationship status if you want to end or change a relationship.
