So what are you now? Boyfriends?

What is this obsession we have with labels?

I go out on literally 2 dates with this guy and my friends are like “Are you together now? What are you, boyfriends?”.

Enno must we put a label on everything?

Either you’re someone’s “friend”, “boyfriend” or “fuckbuddy”? Ma fee majel ykoun a “work in progress” masalan?

I like this guy. True.

I blew him. Very True.

Ok, it was way more than blowing, I’ll give you that.

But still…I’m gonna take it slow with the labels.

“One date. Two date. KA-BAYMMM! We’re lovers!”?

Doesn’t work that way for me.

    You are very right, I distanced myself from a few friends I’ve known for years due to their labeling, they say they hate labels and yet the minute you start talking to them they’re like “are you guys official? are you two girlfriends? are you guys having sex?” Not only it isn’t any of their business, but I really don’t get that sort of curiosity either.

    I don’t really worry about what my friends might be thinking, I’m more worried if the guy im dating is already imagining us growing old together…

    Everyone likes to rush into everything,it’s beyond me why.

    haha I like the “work in progress”, I will use that in the future 🙂
    I know how you feel, sometimes it’s nice being in that “we’re nothing yet, but there could be something, I don’t know”. Take it slow and enjoy it 🙂 Screw the haters 😛

    thank you dear for this great post 🙂

    i totally agree with you and i think that people are addicted to labeling for a simple fact: they like to be labeled! they like to hear it from others! they feel that it is a part of the process that leads to a happy ending and without it there will be something missing that will lead to a sad one !!!
