It might not affect everyone, but I am finding that in more and more cases it does!
The most important thing in any relationship from my point of view is having fun! What's the point of dating anyone if it’s not to have fun? Don’t waste your time or your friend's time by arguing, it’s not worth it!
People sometimes need to know what situation they are in with their partner/friend/whatever in order to feel safe! But, in fact, if we think about it, why do we need to know so much? Is it gonna improve the relationship, or it is gonna make it worse? Is it some sort of insecurity? Does it make us feel more secure if we know he/she is my boy/girlfriend?
Well in my opinion it should stay as it is... but in fact it does affect us!
Why don't we tend to think in a different way? The people we meet in our lives are only ‘temporary friends’, or however you want to call them. They are not an obligation or people that we have to always stay in touch with! Sometimes distance, habits, hobbies, time passing and personality changes change the situation in different ways.
When you date somebody, either one of the two people (you or the other person) can decide to stop dating the other one and you/he or she will need to respect this decision as this person is absolutely free.
It doesn’t mean that "you don't have to speak" about the situation you are in at the moment, or "how you feel". Obviously communication is key! Just find someone who needs the same as you and be ready for changes!
It doesn't mean "do not get married", it means even if you do, be ready for changes and both your partner and you be aware of your decision freedom.
It does sound super uncertain, but yeah life is uncertain and as soon as we accept that our lives will be easier!
Hope this makes sense for all of you! I apologise for my English as it’s not my first language.
Note: I didn't forget about our hormones today! Just giving them a break! ;)
