You know it, the famous Facebook relationship status that is easier said than explained. Well, I don’t know if it can be considered a relationship status at all because after all you’re either single or you’re not. Newsflash: “It” shouldn’t be complicated. if “it” is complicated then “it” doesn’t exist, technically. Well, maybe “it” exists but only inside your head. So, sorry to burst your bubble but you’re, after all is said and done, are single.
So, as an effort to promote constructive sarcasm (if such a thing exists) here are a few suggestions to help decipher the ever mystic status of “it’s complicated” and what it could actually mean, if you read between the lines. Something to catch the drift if you will…
Here are the hidden messages:
1- Single, but in denial
2- Single, but too miserable to admit it
3- Single, but too proud to admit it
4- Single, but I’m such a loser magnet so I use this to keep the losers away
5- Single, but can’t get over him/her
6- Single, but can’t get over myself
7- Single, but you see, there’s someone I really like and I know he likes me too so I’m waiting for him to make the first step (girls)/ waiting for the right moment to make my move (guys)
8- Single, but stalking someone
9- Single, but love from one side sucks
10- Single with self-esteem issues
11- Single but considering a number of proposals
12- In a relationship, but my parents hate him/her, which actually means single
13- In a relationship with no future, which means single, again.
Anything ringing any bells here or there?
