The Myth: She said she doesn’t want a relationship, so she doesn’t.
The Reality: She is not sleeping with you, introducing you to her friends and cooking you meals because she wants a buddy to play Scrabble with. She wants you; even when she claims that she is fine with being whatever term you have (or have not) assigned to your relationship. She may even actually believe her own lie. But the truth is, if the woman is around you all of the time, she will expect your relationship to go somewhere beyond the ‘friends who have sex’ realm sooner or later. If she’s folding your clothes, grabbing your hand in public and declaring your hanging out status on Twitter, don’t fool yourself into thinking she is the one woman in the free world who genuinely never wants to wear the “girlfriend” title. You are not that lucky.
How to Apply the Thing You Just Learned:
Step #1- If you don’t think the chick you are currently hanging with every weekend and a couple of week days is girlfriend material, stop leading her on. Or keep hanging with her and prepare for a lot of drama you could’ve avoided down the road.
Step #2- Stop letting her fold your laundry.
Step #3- Do no let her convince you. No matter how liberated and progressive women claim to be, after a while, every woman wants to be claimed by a man she really digs. Your “cool girl” is not that cool, actually. Sorry.
