Help! I Don't Know the Definition of Monogamy Anymore

That’s it. I quit. It’s official. I can’t read people. The definition of monogamy has become completely blurred for me and on top of it all, I can’t find those favorite pairs of jeans I love. Here’s the who, what, where of why I am talking monogamy. I can’t help but wonder why we were raised to believe that a healthy relationship is one person to another person and that’s all. No dabbling in between or testing out the waters because it would hurt the other. Then you see so many people with girlfriends or boyfriends doing just that. “Testing the waters” maybe in a different state, or country or time zone and in the end is wrong? I honestly don’t know anymore.

I know how I was raised, but at the end of the day, you can’t help connecting with people when you first meet them. But, instead of falling into this love triangle, you choose to ignore and let the human saunter by because you know they are dating someone. “Dating.” Not married. Dating. So, now what the heck does that mean? That means I can’t be a part of that, right? I think that’s what it means. But, then again, who made up that rule? It seems a bit harsh, considering dating is a relationship… but at the same time, no vows are being exchanaged. Maybe sweet pillow talk, yes, but the vows that people get all huffy about haven’t been said.

Look, I’m no devilish diva harlot or anything, I am just going to need a 2012 refresher on what marriage, girlfriend, dating and single mean before the holidays or I am going to end up sucking face with everyone. You’re welcome.

    That hits home so much! I can’t help with the definition, but I’d like one, too. I’ve always thought I have a very clear idea of what’s right and what’s wrong, but lately, it’s getting rather blurry. Our choices define us. But what on Earth to choose when one option makes me feel that I’m stupid and uptight and the other makes me feel like I’m a pretty much horrible person? I’m going with the stupid so far.
    LOL, a Champagne Problem indeed! 😀

    Oh this is just so right for our generation! And I thought I was the only girl thinking this way, I am very confused as well. I used to have good idea about what I wanted but now it’s all blurred!
    Nice to know, you guys are out there :)

    Samantha on SATC said it best… “Everything before I love you just doesn’t count.”
