In popular culture, there is a thing called friend-zoning, and it is a situation in which a party in a shared relationship develops more intense feeling for the other and wants to be “more than friends” with the other party. Or it’s a situation in which one party, in an intimate relationship, suddenly decides to […]
In life, the order of growth for the most people is usually like this: birth, add numbers to age (year after year), begin elementary school, hit puberty, begin to get attracted to the opposite sex, become 18 (or thereabout), go to the university, graduate from school, seek a job, get a car, get married, have children, […]
