New Flash!! Did you know what kind of relationship your in? I never thought about this question until I had a conversation with a group of Millennial’s about relationship status. I wasn’t prepared for their openness and the nonchalant manner they view relationships. Did you know that we live in a society where relationships have titles and definitions. Gone are the days of boy meets girl, boy likes girl, boys asks girl to go steady, she says yes, and the rest is history…. This method of dating worked for my parents they were marred for 32 years.
Here’s a fact: People are emotionally scared because they invest time, energy, money and their emotions into what they perceive to be an exclusive relationship only to discover that they were in a SITUATION, instead of a relationship.
These are some of the classifications of relationships that is now viewed as situations.
- Just kicking it.
- Friends with benefits
- Side piece
- Lets just see what happens
- Mr. or Mrs. for right now
- Just something to do
- Open relationship
- In between relationships
So, What Say you? Because I am at a loss for words.
