Your story resonated! I recently wrote this (mostly) silly story about how complicated “single” is.

To be honest, that guy was a bit of a tool. I’m assuming he had been in the dating trenches for awhile. How could he not understand the nuances of “singlehood” these days?

If you end up perusing my story, you’ll see I didn’t even try to attempt to delve into the layers of being in a relationship. That might be even murkier than being single!

Perhaps relationships were always this perplexing, but it certainly feels like they are moreso these days.

And I concur: there is a lot of grey area and embracing that might lend itself to more peace. Thank you for sharing your story and best of luck to you in your search!
