My Facebook relationship status reads “it’s complicated”. My dad asked me the other day why that was. I didn’t really know how to answer it, except to say, well, the answer to that is complicated too.
Well. There’s not exactly an option under relationship status that lets you tick the little box next to a description: well, I’ve been living with my boyfriend for nearly two and a half years, we’ve been dating for three and a half years and we have a two and a half year old son. We’re living together – which means we’re not ‘dating’ per se. We’re not engaged, but we’re more than just boyfriend and girlfriend. It’s like we’re married, but it’s not.
So, if it’s not not complicated, then what is it?
I certainly don’t have a clue.
