Does this sentence correctly use the word 'confine'?

Would you like to confine our relationship only till Facebook or will you take it further to the next level?

Confine (to):

  • To keep within bounds; restrict: Please confine your remarks to the issues at hand. See Synonyms at limit.
  • ...to confine our relationship only to Facebook....

Grammatically, that use of "confine" seems okay. That said, the sentence as a whole reads quite awkwardly. I don't like the way it starts with "Would you.." and continues with "will..."

I think it would be better to use a more parallel structure:

Would you like to confine our relationship only to Facebook, or would you like to take it further to the next level?

Also, I probably wouldn't use confine in a question like this; it seems like too formal a word for this kind of question. I'd probably word it more like this:

Would you rather just stay friends on Facebook, or would you be open to taking the next step?
