Ugly or pretty, unhealthy or healthy, cold or hot, we are a society that loves to label everything. We want everything to fall into a certain category, so we know exactly how to respond to it. However, when it comes to relationships, women are willing to settle for any label they can get their hands on! There is the infamous “friends with benefits” to “unofficial boyfriend and girlfriend” title. Everyone has a friend (or yourself) who has told a story about your new guy and included one of these faux labels.
My favorite new label that I just heard about was “a non-relationship relationship.” I was on the phone with my good friend and this is what she is calling her situation with a guy. My friend seemed quite happy with how things were going but all I could think is she kidding? Oh, and that this guy was a genius to score such a sweet deal!The fact that there is a “non” in her relationship’s title means they aren’t together!
So this got me thinking is the dating world extinct? I believe for right now it is. Guys are getting exactly what the want with out having to commit to anything. Unless something changes, the term boyfriend and girlfriend may disappear from our vernacular!
What’s the craziest label you or your friends have accepted when dating someone?
