Today we’re going to discuss the single most controversial topic of our age: IS A HOT DOG A SANDWICH?
Wait. No. That’s another article.
I guess today we’re discussing the SECOND most controversial topic: what the h**l is going on with the “talking” phase of a relationship?
When I was a kid, it wasn’t even a word we used in regard to dating. Granted, I was a kid at the time, so I guess I wasn’t dating. What I mean to say is – this particular designation seems fairly recent, and you get the impression that hardly anyone can agree on how to even define it, much less how we should feel about it.
So, what’s the deal with talking? Here are 20 anonymously submitted opinions on just that.
20. 50 shades of grey
Some folks just wanna know right away.
19. The wallflowers
Please @ me next time.
18. Talk the talk
Sounds like a good match. 🙂
17. Comment and commit
Realistic or just defeatist?
16. What’s the issue?
There’s something oddly sad about the term “decent personality.”
15. Only have eyes for you
Attitudes like this confuse me – isn’t the lack of exclusive commitment the whole reason it’s called “talking?”
14. Looking ahead
Why do we do this to ourselves?
13. What’s the point?
I…don’t know how to argue with this.
12. A site to behold
“Now get off the site! Hahha ;)”
11. I get high
With a little help from my might-be-more-than-friends.
10. Cling sting
How much of myself do I put into this?
9. What a waste
To be fair, this can be true of ANY stage of a relationship.
8. Dropped call
Ouch, that’s gotta hurt a lot.
7. Bugs in the belly
Sometimes it’s the little things that are magic.
6. Big talk / small talk
Once you know someone, is there more to stick around for?
5. Make an exit
The fear is real.
4. One and only
It’s literally impossible to keep up with the rules.
3. The long game
If you’ve been hurt, this phase can take forever.
2. Getting used
Some would argue that once s** enters the picture, you really can’t call it “talking” anymore.
1. Freedom isn’t free
I suppose I get the point though it feels a little odd to hear.
Personally, I don’t feel like I’m any closer now to having a clear opinion on this whole “talking” thing, but these posts have given me a lot to think about.
How do you feel about it?
