Why would my boyfriend change is his Facebook profile pic or am I being paranoid?

Is he trying to attract women or am I being being a typical crazy obsessed person?

He's growing and changing and trying on a new face.
Ask him if it's that...

Keep to your real relationship more than FB reactions, you'll be happier, much. Guaranteed.

I know how you feel.. well kinda. My bf changes his display picture allll the time. At least he used to before I told him how much I hated it.
For me, I don't think my bf is trying to attract anyone.. just himself! My bf is a bit full of himself and has called himself "sexy". So it irritates the hell out of me when he keeps changing his picture, I guess he can't get enough of himself!

But to answer your question, just because someone changes their picture on a site like that doesn't mean they are trying to attract anyone. I change my picture on facebook just because I get bored of seeing the same pic.

I was straight forward with my bf. Took me months though! I told him to quit changing his damn picture becuase it pisses me off. I was surprised that he actually listened to me and apologized. And now he no longer has his picture up.. woohooo! So maybe you can try askign your bf about this. I'm not suggesting you do exactly what I did lol, but just casually ask him why he changed his picture. He probably changed it for innocent reasons :)

Let's add neurotic and manic-depressive to crazy and obsessed.

It's fairly typical.

People change there pics, just for something new. Happens all the time. doesn't mean squat. He just found a pic he like better.

Don't be so paranoid, or else he will be looking to replace you.

Put the question this way: Why would YOU change the picture you have on FaceBook? Are any of your possible reasons vile or deceitful?

There is your answer. It is a very routine and normal thing to do. Everyone does it and you will too, sooner or later.

People change their photos when they get tired of seeing the same one repeatedly. It's just like on myspace if you look at your profile enough the background eventually gets boring so you change it to something new. You're just being paranoid. You should only worry if he changes the picture to one of him and another girl.

That sounds a little paranoid. Paranoia and suspicion are poison to a relationship.

Well, is his new photo better looking than his old photo? He just wants to put his best image out there for the world to see. Can't blame him for that.

Holy crap. Can people get banned on here? That "handsomedetroitguy" has issues..

Hey, dude.. do this site a favor and get the hell off it and take some anger management classes. It's not normal or healthy to have such a strong and crazy opinion about innocent question as this.

And to the original poster- don't listen to that guy. He is angry, bitter, and psycho. And that's all I have to say.. I think your question has already been answered :)
