Facebook may have over 600 million users but there’s still one problem: all the info is online!  How on earth are you supposed to know if that cutie you just met is single or married without access to his or her profile?! Ok, yes, you could just ask – but that’s not very tactful now, is it? So, rather than having to muster up any courage and attack the subject head on, we could all just wear our relationship status and make it easier for everyone. At least, that’s what Buump thinks we should do.

The company sells colorful plastic bracelets featuring the 5-different relationship status options in English for €5.99. There is also an additional pack with the 5 “looking for” options sold for the same price. And you can buy all 10 bracelets for €10.99 (the site also lets you buy in bulk and customize your own bracelets for orders of 1,000 or more).

Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a bracelet enabling you to specify whether you are interested in men or women and even though it’s a France-based company, no foreign language options are available. Still, you’re sure to find the right way to describe your current relationship situation regardless.

Buump obviously is part of the recent trend of physical products based on Facebook content and concepts. For example, Printing Facebook is one way that you can immortalize your Facebook friends by printing out their photos as a poster. And similar content has also been inspired by Twitter’s platform, like Twittabling jewelry.

Buump also made a bracelet suggestion for IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn after he was arrested on Saturday.
