Although you prefer relationships to be clearly defined, sometimes it's best to leave things more open-ended. However, someone's behavior may be exceptionally difficult to decipher today, even if you ask for clarification. But there's no need to push too hard; ultimately, you have a better chance of getting what you want if you remain attentive to the signals that others are giving you. If you can't figure out what's going on, avoid the temptation to withdraw. An honest dialogue enables you to create something that works for both of you.
