I have seen countless people make this mistake on their Facebook profile information. In the “Interested in” information section, most people put “Men and Women”. This is a mistake. Unless you are bisexual (whatever that could mean…). That part of ones profile is not trying to ask you what kind of friends you’d like (i.e. do you want male and female friends). It’s asking what your “sexual orientation” is. I’ve only learned recently by correcting my family that many people (either non-english speakers or older adults) think the “Interested in” section is trying to ask you if you have any prejudice against making friends of a particular sex. Not so. So please - change it. You may not be particularly interested in changing it but for those who unwittingly stumble upon your profile they may think you are trying to say you are bisexual.
If, like me, you are not intending to use Facebook as a dating service or if you don’t want people to think you are looking, just leave it blank and it won’t show up on your profile. Since I am not looking for anybody I leave both my “relationship status” blank and my “interested in” blank.
Just a friendly reminder :D:D
