Should every relationship have a name? Ours doesn't have one and this scares me a lot after you leave me alone for the night. I try not to make a noise and wake you up. I like you more this way. Peacefully asleep..oblivious of the tides inside me. I slide out quietly, lest I irk you.. I don't want you to realize the sudden absence of my touch. I sit an inch away from you and wonder what would you be dreaming about. It's difficult to resist touching you again..running my fingers over your face, trying to assure myself that you are for real and not a figment of my imagination. I also wonder if you would look for me in the morning when I am gone..will you run your hands over the creases on the sheet, trying to remember my caress?

I try to think of a name..for this thing between us..every relationship has a name, shouldn't ours also have one?

nt every relation is meant to hv a name...
someone said to me once that "a nameless relation gives less pain as no expectations are bound wid them"....
bt u kw wat....we still expect n den it hurts even more....:-(

I think yours should, otherwise it is bound to be interpreted in ways you might not like. Besides, there is always some sort of responsibility associated with the matters of the heart and you cant take it unless you define it :-)

Very beautifully written though :-). I love your writings :-)

i agree with mansi..not every relationship needs to have a name...

sometimes silence gives them a meanin in itself...not everythin needs to b said out aloud

but yeah there needs to b security for any relationship...

relationship is itself an emotional bonding between two... names are meant to the external world to figure it out... u don't need to take the pain of figuring it out...

I too have wondered if every relationship has a name.. if one can keep it like that .. without name and without expectations then nothing like it ..
however some nameless relationships after a point start faltering coz other relationships with a name might crop up between both of them .. then it can get complicated .. to maintain the same level of intimacy .. and then you relaize.. you did expect something out of it .. you never realized it to begin with ..

thats my personal experience.. it can be different for others..

Like u said one starts looking for a name the moment u start expecting!! And its human to expect...hope u find the name of ur relationship else u will end up getting hurt.
