It’s so completely non-officially official. I’m a complicated person.
Moreso my relationship status is of a complicated nature.
So… shall I begin from the beginning?
Y’all remember Camera Guy right?
So it’s him.
As in all his fault.
As in… yeah I like him
It started out as a weekly meet-up… which somehow ALWAYS involved wings & beer. Randomly the once-a-week meeting (Which was normally Saturday evening after he was done work until Sunday morning when he had to putter his way back to work on this absurdity of an e-bike… I’ve always, and always will, tease him about it) suddenly shot forward to about 3-4 days a week of meeting up.
About the 3 week mark I think is when “everything changed.”
Suddenly it went from meeting once a week for wings, to meeting 3-4 times a week for… wings. And beer. And other food stuffs. The weekend visits became full weekends (with him working peppered in between) and also random pick-ups from his work with the ruse of it being too cold/windy/rainy to ride said absurdity of an e-bike home.
He’s made his intentions quite clear in that he wants an exclusive “only you and me” relationship.
I’ve made my life situation quite clear in that “I’m just not ready for one of those yet!” and that I hate getting pushed (or pulled ) into things that I’m clearly not ready for yet.
Then there’s the complicated part. Because labels are what make things complicated. Everyone needs labels so this is how it’s currently defined.
To his friends who are more old-fashioned and/or uptight: I’m his girlfriend.
To his friends who are more hip & “with it” (heh): I’m his female friend whom he sleeps with occassionally.
To his parents: I’m his girlfriend.
To my friends who all know my nature & personality: He’s camera guy
To my parents: “So how many boyfriends do you have now anyways?” ~
So while I rely on face book to tell me EVERYTHING… facebook lists us both as single. And he’s doing the nudging thing to move further into a relationship-like thing. So I tell him “until it’s on facebook it doesn’t exist.” His immediate response of “So I’ll just log into facebook as soon as I get into work?” And we… negotiated our relationship status…
I told him I would give him an “It’s complicated” but nothing more right now. To which he accepted because… he knew that was the best offer I was going to give him And Monday morning I made the switch on the FB relationship status as “It’s complicated”, which was accepted within… minutes? And with that comes the nudging at “So how long are we going to be complicated for before you finally give in?”
Really, can y’all hear me roll my eyes??
