Is dating being boyfriend and girlfriend
I've been seeing someone for a few weeks, and I'm at the point where I don't want to date anyone else.
However, he mentioned to me early on that it takes him awhile to get comfortable with the boyfriend/girlfriend title.
Do you feel weird after a while if a guy you've been dating refuses to call you a girlfriend?
Do you have the "what are we" conversation often, and does it work out for you?
You can tell if you like someone or not after several dates, but it's really early to tell if you can see yourself being with them in the long run.
This is how I see it also, however I didn't know if I'm alone in that viewpoint.
Labels don’t matter as long as you’re both on the same page.
Ultimately, agreeing that you're "boyfriend-girlfriend" is agreeing on the logistics of a relationship.
I have friends who don't like sleeping with multiple people at once who found a short term partners that they dated exclusively for the duration of a summer internship, but they had no intention of continuing the relationship long term and split up as soon as the internship ended so using the boyfriend/girlfriend label would be a bit weird. He told me he felt the same way and that we were now "in a relationship".
I guess each couple can figure out the wording on their own but to me if I'm only dating/sleeping with you and you are only dating/sleeping with me that means we are exclusive and a couple.
However as long as you both agree to be exclusive, well isn’t that what really matters to you?
The other day I had to remind my sister to update her Facebook status from "engaged" to "married." She was being a bit lackadaisical with letting her world know that she was officially hitched.
