Terms of endearment (part 1)

Before I start, I hope everyone had a great Happy Pie and Beer day yesterday!

Anyways, this is not a post on making cute pet names. So if you were looking on advice for that, I would refer you to the Jenna Marbles video “How To Make Awesome Pet Names” on this subject. You might recognize her as the one who introduced the face in the video “How To Avoid Talking To People You Don’t Want To Talk To.”

This was preceded by her introduction of the Hot Girl Disguise in “How To Trick People Into Thinking You’re Good-Looking” Sidenote: If you’ve never watched Jenna Marbles, I’d recommend you start because she’s amazing. I think she’s my number 2 only to Ms. Swift, which if you know me is one of the highest compliments I can pay someone! Speaking of Taylor, I thought of a new addition to the S-test previously described: “Is your name Taylor Swift?”

.. And as usual, I am getting off-topic.

Anyways, since I’ve been going out and meeting new people, I’ve been getting asked what my current situation is. I have been trying to explain to countless people – friends, family members, and randoms who read my blog (seriously, thanks guys!) – my current status. I mean, nowadays, there are so many confusing terms (and confusing accompaniment using hand gestures/animals) that I decided to put my research to use and write up a little guide for my next post to help clarify the situation for other people.

So even if you don’t agree with my interpretations, I have asked around and I think this serves as a pretty good representation of the male population for our perceptions of the increasingly blurry and subtle line between dating, hanging out, and seeing someone. .

I am basing most of the score on my perceptions, but I’ll add a more objective component: the way you store them in your phone as well as how many times you talk to them.

I’m going to rank girlfriend-ness on a letter-scale with an A+ being, “This is my girlfriend” and F being, “Yeah I sat next to her in class and I think her name is Jess/Jen or Amanda/Ashley.”

It turns out that if you guess those 4 names (Jess/Jen/Amanda/Ashley), according to the data from the US Census on babies born in the 1980’s, I figured out you have a 10% chance of getting it right (that is a pro pick-up move)..
