Dating vs a relationship

Going from dating to relationship is also a process that requires your attention, effort, energy, interaction and, sometimes, even the ability to be your own shrink, best friend and a fortune teller all in the same time.

You can’t grab a guy for his collar, shake him a few times and say, “Listen, dude, do you mean business or am I just wasting my time here?

You should be able to tell him anything without judgement, and he do the same for you.

There is undeniable trust in your relationship, no hidden secrets or lack of loyalty.

Two people who are in a relationship with one another are undoubtedly going to have a very deep and strong connection with each other.

You know your boyfriend well, and he knows you incredibly well too.

But until then, dates that happen every so often is just that- a date- and nothing more.

Consider how many times you’re seeing this guy on a weekly basis and also consider how many times you’re texting each other or calling each other to determine which road you’re taking towards being in a relationship.So keep that in mind: he isn’t going to bring you around until he is sure you are his girlfriend and the two of you have the potential of lasting a long time, and you probably wouldn’t do that with your friends either.Sure, you’re dating; but you’re probably not texting and calling twenty-four seven like a couple in love, and you’re probably not seeing each other all TOO often. There’s probably a multitude of questions running through your head when you’re talking to someone or seeing someone somewhat regularly, so what’s the deal- are you just dating, or are you in a relationship?You’re both free to explore other options until you’re sure you can settle on someone, whether it’s this guy or another.So, when you’re dating, almost be certain there’s other dates happening without you.
