Relationship Statuses

Relationship Statuses

“Don’t sacrifice the relationship for a relationship status. If his heart is still single, then being ‘taken’ won’t matter.”

-Derrick Jaxn

Nowadays, people seem more obsessed to show a “status” of their relationship to their social media followers than a true commitment to the actual relationship.

Phrases like “It’s Complicated” seem to have crept into our everyday lexicon.

I’m not entirely sure what the point of a status is.

I do see the merit in letting people know if you’re taken so they’re never led on.

But anything beyond that seems pointless.

Giving every stage of a relationship a name seems to complicate things more often than not.

I’ve heard my friends say things like “I thought we were just friends but s/he put something else on Facebook.”

I feel it’s time to keep things simple again. If you’re single, you’re single. If you’re taken, you’re taken.

Anything in between should remain between you and your partner.

Neel, You make some excellent points here…Labels are more about insecurities than meaning these days, however sometimes with engagement, commitment and marriage, they can be necessary….Thanks so much for your wonderful, wise words,, Samantha
