Being a relationship advice columnist for Teen Vogue, we have lots of mail from girls in “no strings attached relationships that are. Girls describe by themselves as “kind of” with a man, “sort of” seeing him, or “hanging away” with him. The man could be noncommittal, or even even worse, in another no-strings relationship. For the time being, girls have actually “fallen” for him or plead beside me for suggestions about steps to make him come around and get a real boyfriend.
I am worried by these letters. They signify a trend that is growing girls’ intimate everyday lives where these are typically providing by themselves to dudes on dudes’ terms. They connect first and get later on.
