You’re known as the one who doesn’t have the best luck when it comes to locking down and making things official. You’re not exactly the type to move things along or push your relationship status to the next level.
As a result, you often get stuck in the gray area of relationships.
Yet it doesn’t mean that you’re a commitment-phobe. You actually long for that kind of security and stability—you just don’t feel like it’s possible. In fact, you don’t avoid commitment at all. Ultimately, there’s something else you’re truly afraid of: getting hurt.
Starting to catch feelings? Uh-oh, rough times ahead.
You're together, but not like, together-together. Just kind of casual. And it sucks.
You don’t know if you’re just hanging out or dating.
It feels like it’s just too early to ask, so everything will fall to pieces...
...so you avoid raising the question. Who cares about the whole commitment thing?
You don’t want to seem too clingy or attached because that might scare him away.
When any conversations about plans for a concert or a movie arise, you don’t push the plans forward.
You’re not the best planner, in general. There's less pressure that way.
But it doesn’t mean you don’t like having plans.
Still, you avoid the topic and try to change the subject because the future is so unknown.
Sometimes you care about someone you’re seeing so much that you’re afraid to make promises about anything.
It doesn’t mean you’re not sure about your feelings.
It’s because you want to preserve everything you have with them.
Things can get messy and awkward really quick when you initiate the "what are we" talk.
Meeting parents makes you really, really nervous.
You don’t see the harm in delaying things.
But you are afraid if things happen too early or too fast, it could mess everything up.
You’re afraid of when things get out of control.
You're not afraid of commitment, really.
You’re afraid of having something you could lose.
