I hate this phrase. Honestly, what does “it’s complicated” mean? Does it mean, she’s preggo but I’m not sure the baby’s mine or “we are still sleeping together but not a couple?” I have a hard time with this new concept, especially, if you don’t share assets or a child together. What is so complicated about it? Even Facebook has an “it’s complicated” option under relationship status.
This is a pure cop out! In my opinion, this phrase is used to avoid a possible commitment or when you want to have your cake and eat it too. I can be a very black and white and when its over I am pretty much done. There’s no complication, no hanging on for months or years—its cold turkey baby! Am I jaded by my own views of relationships? Is there really a “complicated” factor?
How do you feel about the “it’s complicated” excuse? Do you use this term to describe your relationship? If so, why?
