<h2>The 'Look How in Love I Am' Update</h2><br><br> EXAMPLES: <br> "Pete Lark sends a kiss to the love of his life and future wife!" <br>"Holly Quint could lie in bed with Ben forever." <br> "Bob Chani adores his sweetheart more than life itself." <br><br> Though our own love lives gravitate toward the "it's complicated" description on Facebook, yours seems to be 100 percent perfect -- and naturally we love hearing about it every day. But sarcasm aside, what compels some people to gush on Facebook? Could it be that they're overcompensating for something -- that they feel a need to prove something to others...or to themselves? <br><br> Undoubtedly the 'Look How in Love I Am' update is sometimes an expression of innocent exuberance -- the product of a person overcome by joy and appreciation for their significant other. But not always. Sometimes it's an attempt to quell internal doubts ("See? I really must be in love") or a coded message to an ex ("I'm happier without you, loser!").
