A process that occurs within a relationship (especially a romantic one) in which someone intentionally commits conflicting actions to make the other person unsure of what the relationship actually is. The point of intentional ambiguity is to keep the other person in relationship purgatory, to lure them in with the possibility of a relationship without making any actual commitments. Intentional ambiguity is when a girl texts you every day for a week straight, then suddenly ghosts you only to text you again a week later asking you for something.
Chloe has been dating 5 different guys on and off for the past year, but hasn't committed to any of them, Chloe has mastered intentional ambiguity.
