What is “talking” and is it different from “hooking up”? And why can’t people just be straight up and either be together or not together?
Well, probably because “dating” means different things to different people.
And if you don’t want to go the burning their shit and slashing their tires route, there’s always the subtle shade throwing.A dating red flag: According to the Pew Research Center, in 2012 over 36% of Americans ages 18-31 were living with their parents — that's over 21 million people, enough to earn us the title of the "boomerang generation." It's a temporary reality for most, one that reflects less on the person than on external factors: a lagging economy, mounting student debt, a professional path paved with unpaid internships.But in spite of these widely known realities, "living with your parents" still conjures up images of lazy slackers, marinating in their parents' basements in a directionless malaise.I have a job, pay my own bills, and go out and do things every now and then with friends and can come back at home at anytime.It's just I haven't been able to find a full time job to where I can make enough money to move out on my own yet and I DO want to move out on my own in the future just when I feel and know I'm ready.
