Have you ever come across that relationship status on Facebook, “It’s complicated” and thought to yourself, “What does that really mean?” I know I have, I know most of us have. Most times, we think it’s a joke and we ignore it. A few times, we’ve actually known the situation that our friends were talking about and we knew that in fact, the situation was complicated. That’s Facebook, but what about in real life? That’s probably a more frequent term to hear, wouldn’t you agree? There’s a guy friend of yours who’s trying to explain how complicated his situation is soooo complicated rather than just admit, it ain’t really working out. (Can’t lie, I’ve been there before.) Or, there’s a girlfriend of yours who’s trying to explain how her situation with Eric is just soooo complicated. She explains over margaritas and in one conversation she says, “Oh my God, you don’t understand…” about 20 times

    If you can’t without hesitation say you’re in a relationship then you’re single. As far as I’m concerned.

    It’s complicated means in between. I wis I would…

  • It’s complicated basically means you are still doling it out to someone that you cannot form a real lasting relationship with outside of the bedroom.

    It’s complicated because people make it that way. People bring their ex’s from the dead to the present. Baby mama and daddy mess usually that stems from one wanting to be in the relationship and the other is not having it. Hooking up with married women or men. People create that nonsense. They’d rather be with half a person than nobody.
