Fine, grey lines.

Where do you draw the line?


Is it the moment they make a small remark about the way you look tonight? Or when they buy you a drink? Two drinks? Five? Or is it when they grab your waist in a way that only means one thing? Or do you wait until they’ve actually forcefully kissed you three times and touched you in places you’d rather not have been touched because you don’t want to make things “awkward”? After all, there is no need to create drama over nothing.


It’s definitely nothing, except you come home and you feel unclean, uncomfortable, unsafe. You feel violated. These feelings might be new, or old, but damn, they definitely aren’t fuzzy.

It was just a small mistake made by someone else in a fleeting moment of misrepresented signals and boozy decisions, that makes you feel sick to your stomach at the thought of it.

It is difficult to know when to draw the line when the line changes depending on the person, situation, and context. It’s difficult to know where to draw the line when you are trying to maintain the ‘good vibes’ of the night and after all the didn’t actually do anything. It wasn’t that serious. It wasn’t clear that you actually didn’t want it and you weren’t playing hard to get this time.
