DO WE REALLY NEED RELATIONSHIP TAGS?
Girl: Hon, what are we?
Boy: What do you mean?
G: I mean, what are we? Where are we in our relationship?
B: We are happy. Aren’t we?
G: Yes, we are. But I would like to know what I mean to you. Am I your girlfriend?
Tags. Should we associate them with love? Girlfriend. Boyfriend. Why do we run to cover our relationships under blankets of tags. Isn’t the relationship enough?
Or is to understand where we stand? On the rare occasion when we are confused or when there is no clear outline, it is a way to clear all doubts. Or so you assume.
But what you really need instead is to tell the person in front you are afraid. Afraid he may leave you. That maybe, he isn’t serious. Or that all you need is an assurance that he loves you.
