I’d like to consider myself a free-spirit. I don’t like feeling restricted or confined, I’m far from my best in conditions like that.
I’ve noticed that when I like someone and I get into an official relationship with them, my attraction for them tends to fade and grey out, even if I don’t want it to. Then I start to want out after a while. And usually after getting out of the relationship, I may start to find them attractive and colorful again.
But when I do like someone but don’t get into an official relationship with them, my attraction for them remains for MUCH longer and I feel more passion.
Is there a way I can go about this and avoid the stigma that usually surrounds situationships? Commitment isn’t a problem to me. It’s the fact that the attraction and passion fades whenever I feel confined, and getting into an official relationship tends to make me feel that way.
