Have you ask someone are they in an exclusive relationship for them to tell you “It’s complicated”? That particular reply has always baffled me when I hear it. The reason is because I only think of a few legitimate answers someone can respond to that question with and that isn’t one of them.
In my opinion you’re either in or not in an exclusive relationship with someone. Also, some people do agree to take a break to try and figure some things out occasionally. Yet, a break in my opinion means the two individuals aren’t together or living by relationship rules with each other at that time.
When I hear someone say “its complicated” that makes me question how good the communication is in their relationship. I say that because I feel if the communication is good neither party should ever be unsure where things stand.
Furthermore, I think that it’s vital for any potential couple to have good and open communication by making time to talk on the phone on a regular, even if they can’t be around each other daily.
Have you ever been in a romantic relationship that you felt your relationship status was “it’s complicated”? If yes, why did you feel that it was and did things ever change with that person?
