Why DTRs should not be conducted over Messenger

Her:
I’m thinking.

Him:
You’re thinking … what?

Her:
That I need to think more …

Him:
About …?

Her:
About talking about this so indirectly.

Him:
You mean, talking about you and me like we’re not talking about you and me?

Her:
Yep.

Him:
Okay …

Her:
Yikes, well, my roommate’s pestering me to go to dinner coz we’re meeting people. We’ll talk, though.

Him:
Okay.

Her:
Okay. Talk to you later …

“Later”: at 10 months and counting.

Single?

It’s been a week full of crazy conversations about relationships and being single and DTRs*.

Sure, there are advantages to being single.

But sometimes, as one friend put it, “All I want is to know; I just want to know that in the end, something will work out …”

And when it’s a subject this close to home, just saying “Trust God and he’ll pull through” just doesn’t quite cut it.

* Abbr. for “define the relationship”, which may be described as: “‘the talk’ when a male and female who’ve been seeing each other a bit decide if they’re officially a couple.” Go here for the “Unofficial [Christian] Singleness Vocab Guide”. You’ll be enlightened. Seriously.
