I want to badge all three of these comments. Came to the realization the other day that I don't want to be in a relationship (not that I am currently). But it's a weird thing to say to someone, how do you explain that to people. How do you know it's not just a defense.

It's not just a defence. It's 100% true, until it isn't.

.......isn't that a binary?

"is" creates problems. Every "is" should be replaced with something more tentative and conditional.

It might not just be a defence. It might be 100% true until it no longer seems true.

How does that sound?

Depends what the definition of the word "is" is.

Yes, I was channelling Bill. This is for the kids who weren't around in 1998.
