You Find Yourself Struggling To Explain Your Status To Other People

Not that it matters what other people think or anything like that, but when your friends or even family ask you the status of what you have with this person, you have to find some interesting but easy way to say just what you are: nothing. “We’re still talking, but he keeps saying he wants to take things slow…ya know?” Chances are that friend or family member is going to give you the slow head nod (which means they’re taking in what you’re saying and slowly but surely judging…) and trying to offer support. Some will say that you should still give it time, depending on the other party’s circumstances, while other people will say, you should cut them loose. By the way, once you’ve explained your situation once, your friend or family member will likely keep asking you about said status every time you talk for low-key entertainment. How fun! Not.
