Stuck in The Grey Area
In the world of dating where everyone is afraid of being played, how can we ever get to know someone? Most of us become complacent in situationships in hopes that it blossoms into something real. Also, what happens after a breakup-where does the love go, or do feelings linger on? Or what about newly dating and you become disappointed. Each of these instances are real and problematic and leave a grey area open for interpretation and if your not careful, it can sour you on dating and you give up your quest for adding extra love to your life.
