Said we were dating
When I asked him if we were going out properly he just said he ‘wasn’t there yet, and wasn’t even sure if he wanted a serious relationship.’ “I don’t want to push it as I have a really nice time with him.
I don’t want to come across as some relationship-obsessed harpy and I’m sure once we’ve been seeing each other for long enough he’ll come round – we’re in a relationship in all but name anyway.” I slightly want to bang my head against the keyboard now, not least because I’ve said the same thing more than once in the past.
We communicated a few times after that via email, text, phone..even made a future date..over that week he became busy at work (which is believable) We still communicated but when it got closer to the day of our date.
He said we needed to talk...obviously that was not good.
It definitely was not all about sex either because we did not go there all the time.
It's hardly news that conventional dating norms have gone out the window and, with them, so too have traditional dating labels.
"How is dating her exclusively any different from calling her your girlfriend?
One friend (who wishes to remain anonymous lest her non-boyfriend reads this) explains: “I’ve been seeing this guy for four months now – we’re dating and see each other a couple of times a week.
However, if anyone refers to me as his girlfriend in front of him, the colour drains from his face.
He said that the times that he spent with me were very special to him.
Every time we went out it just got better and better and he was not expecting that.
I mean I respect him as a man and he was nothing but respectful to me.
