The one where i share my thoughts on DTR-ing

Hello World,

Unless you have been in a loving relationship for the past 10 years or unbearably alone, you’ll have likely heard of the term DTR, it refers to the act of defining the relationship, the currently dubious and liminal stage of dating a person. The DTR conversation can take several forms and very much depends on the individuals involved, BUT there are some stereotypes that ring true about it and they annoy the hell out of me.

Allow me to rant for a little bit:

  • The female is usually the one to bring up the conversation
  • It’s incredibly awkward for no reason other than you know how the convo will go down
  • Honestly if you need to have the conversation it means both of you aren’t already aren’t on the same page (when you feel safe in a relationship you magically don’t have these conversations or they happen spontaneously, not after weeks of convincing yourself that it’s okay to bring up)

Anything to add?
