Hey Kelly, I wanted to give you a piece of advice regarding people asking about your relationship status."Ahhhhh I don't know how to answer that...!"There are 2 very easy ways to be about a question of "are you available" and you don't want to give any direct answer:1. "It's why there is an 'it's complicated' option on facebook for the relationship status." Honestly this is a very funny and awesome option, and probably fits for like 99% of us who aren't completely married, so you can always default to this. (Shout out to Fox for this idea, noted on his own about the bloggers.)2. "I'm happily involved with someone right now, but thank you for the interest!" - really, this works for anyone, guy or girl, whether you are in a relationship or not.Facebook makes our lives so damn complicated. I love being in touch with people, but I've seen (and unfortunately been a part of) some reedonkulous drama on there, so just be careful out there.---------Here's a tip for the guys who might be interested in meeting girls like Kelly: Get involved in their online "scene." You are never, ever, ever going to have a shot at a talented chick like this if you're publicly blasting it on an open, public forum. Facebook, twitter, IM's, PM's, deviant art, whatever art and/or creative sites they are on, music-related sites, things like that. Respond to the things that they are doing, see if you can draw them into your interests a bit, and try to strike up some cool conversation. Your goal at first should not be to try to pick her up like at a bar. It should be to get to know her. I mean, honestly, Kelly seems like a very friendly, fun, and talented chick, but if you live in like Texas are something, are you gonna fly 2500 miles to see her if you don't even know her? You want to get to know a person online, and then if you get a connection, try to move that into a phone/voice conversation, and maybe even a video call.And here's the neat thing about doing all that: If you do do that, you'll know she's available, because people in solid relationships aren't supposed to do things like that. You'll figure out right away if she's with someone, it's usually very obvious (either through pictures or social updates about what they are doing and where they are going). Of course, protect yourself, there's still a lot of crazies out there, but cripes' sakes, if you're interested in a girl, go try to get to know her a little bit and then work in the relationship status.
