Do we need labels?
There are so many types of relations nowadays. It’s not just friend, acquaintance, lover, boyfriend, husband~. There online friends, online insta, fb friends, Snapchat friends, online study partners, dating app friends, friends of friends, followers, I’d even say texting friends when you don’t really meet but text. So which of those are important? How important is to know which relationship we are in?
I feel that although traditionally I always want to know clearly where we stands, I should start giving it up. Because if one type of relationship is going down, it still doesn’t mean that other one can’t be kept. The question is if I want to keep it in other type.
Or does it not matter about friends and acquaintances? Does it matter about partners/boyfriends/lovers?
What is the level of commitment nowadays anyways? How much we show us online? How much we show to our friends(one type or another)? Or how much we just enjoy ourselves together and individually?
It’s way too confusing to put those boundaries. I don’t want to be conservative but sometimes feels good to feel secure. But is it what I don’t get without label? Label won’t guarantee that it will stay this way. It can change with or without a label. So which one is better, less stressful, less hurtful if bad turn?
