Dating vs hanging out
I can’t put my finger on it, and maybe you can’t either, but what is it with dating? There’s some interest, but one thing leads to another, and boom, you’re hanging out. It’s not a huge step up from being friends, and not quite at “talking,” which is just as vague.It’s this weird limbo between just friends and hooking up, and I don’t like it.What happened to knowing if you were dating or not? Just tell me already because I want to know if I should wait five minutes before I open your Snapchat, and the anxiety is killing me. To know if you are just hanging out, you're the only one he's hanging out with?Or to know he sees this thing as more than a casual hookup? I don’t know, but instead of putting yourself down or letting everyone and their mother tell you how dumb you are, remember, at least you have Hanging out isn’t something you’d tell your mother during the holidays, but it’s nothing to torture yourself over, either.
If you’ve been down this road before, you know that it’s seldom successful.
I want to feel secure and know who I am to someone, even if we start off a bit shaky. Haven’t you’ve heard, some people get married drunk and forget who they even got married to? Think of it like this: Hanging out is a phase, and hopefully, it’ll go away soon, along with crop tops and bad ombrés.
