It sounds harsh to say that an almost relationship is never going to be the official, long-term relationship you wanted it to be, but it’s time to get real! You might think that the almost relationship you’re in feels real and is special, but is it worth wasting time and energy on? Nope.
1. YOU’RE FOOLED INTO THINKING SOMETHING BIG’S GOING TO HAPPEN.
One of the main qualities of almost relationships is that you think you’re almost at the foot of Grand Love. Only, you never actually get there. You’re in a maze, and the exit is always out of reach. Hence its name: almost. You’re “almost” in love.
2. YOU HAVE NOTHING.
Almost relationships are somewhere in-between being single and having a relationship, but they’re not actually a stepping stone to anything. You’re acting like you’re in a couple, but you’re not. So what do you have? Nothing. When you have nothing, you can’t grow roses out of it.
