It's no longer enough to update your relationship status on your Facebook page. Now, you have to wear it on your sleeve ... literally. Buump Relationship Status bracelets, new to the U.S. this spring, have already made a successful splash at New York City Fashion Week, according to the company's press release:

relationship bracelet

"Targeting 13 to 35 year olds, these pliable silicon bracelets come in 10 lively colors of two different types: one that defines your current relationship status, and one that states what you're looking for. "So, for example, you can wear a two-bracelet combo that shows that you're 'in an open relationship' and looking for 'whatever I can get,' or 'married' but looking for 'fun.'"

The company admits that the bracelets were "inspired by the Facebook relationship status," and fans include reality star Kristin Cavallari and designer Betsey Johnson. So, would you wear your relationship status on your sleeve... or rather, your wrist?

    This makes me sorta mad for several different reasons. But I don't want to be an idiot and rant to no one, so here's a picture of a puppy instead.

    .... if people start wearing those, I guess mandatory name tags would be next.

    I could see this being cool for teenagers, like in Jr. High/HIghschool, but if I see any of my friends wearing these, we'll have to talk. . . Lol

    How about something similar for dogs? Collars that say, "I Bite" or "Will Kiss for Treats" or how about "Got Pedigree/Will Party."

    It's not for me, but I do think tools like that are helpful for people who are looking. I would add one more thing to help identify potential prospects. . . gender for those who want to specify.

    I think it's funny! Plus when your out it's hard to know what people are looking for. Just look for the color you want and there you go...perfect match. You don't have to go though all the hoops to find out they aren't what you were looking for!

    However the "Status: in a relationship" one would come in handy warring off unwanted attention.

    If you need a cheap piece of plastic to make you feel like your relationship is valid then you shouldn't be in one.

    Why not I would wear it for the time being it is just a wrist band nothing else. It may even help certain people take that step to getting a real wedding band we may never know tell we try it out.

    Looks like something you might do in high school.

    To go alone with the bracelets they used to indicate how far you've gone with another person.

    Why? If a wedding band doesn't mean anything anymore to people why would a plastic bracelet?

    I'm not opposed to them... however, as a white collar professional, it would be difficult for me to wear one while "suited up" for the office...



    I do think it's strange that now we need to wear our relationship status openly rather than discuss it at will with only those whom we choose to discuss it with...



    Where are the ones that specify that you're looking for a person of the opposite sex and the one that states that you're looking for a person of the same sex... or even more specifics on whatever your personal "kinks" are... submission, domination, group sex, whatever?
  • Sinsin Link 2012/06/07 14:37:19
    Sinsin
    Yeah, where are those? Personally I think it's a bit over the top...perhaps I'm just too old to see the 'fun' in it.
  • MorganRae Link 2012/06/07 17:02:56

    Well there's no bracelets to identify those more specific things, but that is what bandanas are for.
