Many times, and it can be confusing. We break down what this could potentially mean.
‘We’re together, but not in a relationship’You do what normal couples do but you don’t want to make it exclusive by giving it a relationship term. Basically, you want the honeymoon phase to last forever.
Friends with benefitsYou get along, go out for drinks once in a while, have sex but you can’t claim boyfriend and girlfriend rights. The complication here is that there’s no emotions involved, however the sex is go good that you can’t let separate.
On and off all the timeYour friends know you as the type to say your relationship is over and two days later you’re back together. You’re trying to decide whether you’re in a relationship or not and why you’re in it. Not knowing your position in a relationship is a frustrating feeling.
He’s living in another countryThis can only succeed if the two of you work at keeping the relationship going even though it’s a long-distance one. When the calls and visit only come once in a month, couples start labelling it as ‘complicated’. You don’t want to accept that you aren’t a priority anymore and should move on because none of you have made it official.
You have multiple partnersHaving one partner alone can be stressful, what more multiple ones? This will definitely complicate your life.
Staying with the exJumping in too deep in a relationship can make you do regrettable things like buying property together. You know it’s over but you have to suck it up until one of you moves out. It gets rather awkward when one starts dating other people – do you bring them to the house or not, because technically it’s still your place too.
