In the online world few questions
get more personal, or harder to ask,
than that of 'relationship status'.
Online we are singular and alone,
we are our own 'avatars',
regardless of who we volunteer
to be attached to in our analogue life.
Saying 'It's complicated'
seems more more transparent
than saying 'It's personal',
both words add up to the same thing.
Full relationships are complex.
The fuller the relationship
the more it requires respect,
which is hard to find online.
