In our young adult life, I think we get pretty confused about the terminology that labels what kind of relationship we are in.
Simply being someone's girlfriend is actually pretty uncommon.
Nowadays, we have dating without the label, talking (whatever that means), friends with benefits, BAE and more.
Maybe the timing is off or the chemistry isn’t there, but you still have a good time with him, so why not enjoy it while it lasts? When you RSVP to your college roommate’s wedding, you immediately ask Mr. Right Now, because you’re pretty sure he won’t be in the picture when the summer nuptials roll around. Right Now acts like he didn’t hear you mention your parents would be in town for the weekend and is totally cool with rescheduling your plans. Right knows that the first CD you bought with your own money was Toni Braxton, who your favorite Backstreet Boy was, and that you cried when Ginger Spice left the Spice Girls. Right Now has no idea you ever liked music that wasn’t played live in hole in the wall bars like the one you met him in. Right Now thinks you only like Atlanta, when New York is actually your favorite. Right Now’s favorite sexual position before you even knew his middle name. You can’t wait to find out everything there is to know about Mr. You always have some kind of activity planned when you hang out with Mr. Right you are often content just hanging out at home watching Netflix. Right talks about and makes plans for your future together. Right Now says things like “Let’s see what happens”, and “I don’t want to ruin what we have” when you hint at any kind of commitment. Want to chat about relationships, Stephen King or your favorite true crime podcast/documentary/book? Right Now consistently makes plans with you at the last minute. Right will make sure you’re free as far ahead of time as he can, because you’re his first choice for Saturday night hang outs, not his backup plan.
