Awkward stage between friends and dating
I’m not a big fan of how relationships have evolved. If text is used in a selfie, the relationship is heading in a good direction. The couple awkwardly says "hi" to each other in the hall or at sporting events.
What ever happened to taking a girl out dancing, going steady, wearing your boyfriend’s class ring or just simple dating? They still haven’t had a real conversation yet so saying hello in person is weird.
The lack of a name for your relationship can be incredibly frustrating, especially when one of your prying relatives inquires about your love life at a family function.
I found it easiest to say I was single, even when I wasn't exactly single -- I was just in a relationship that was pre-exclusive.
There are many other categories of high school relationships.
We have the on-again, off-again relationships, friends with benefits, or the couple that is forever stuck in the “together” phase.
After hanging out a few times, the couple has successfully graduated from the “just talking” phase.Instead, dating has become a game where couples must conquer many levels just to go on a real date.Snapchat, Netflix, texting and evolving societal norms have definitely changed high school relationships.I often tell my family and friends I’m convinced I was born in the wrong time period. If both think the other is good looking then one must make the first bold, frightening step: adding the other on snapchat.
I like polka dot dresses, record players and old romantic movies. Once the add is completed, selfies will be sent between the two.
It's basically a mutual contract for no-strings sex.
