Does casual dating become relationship
Don't get caught up on language, I think OP is using the term 'dating' to mean anything that happens before you become exclusively involved, i.e.'seeing each other' or 'hanging out a lot' or etc. I don't really make a distinction between dating and a relationship.If I'm dating you, I'm assuming it is heading towards a relationship so I'm not dating other people.I'm already acting like you're my girlfriend regardless of what we call it. I've never gone on a date with a girl without the understanding that we were exclusive.Here’s how my conversation went after my now husband and I were dating a few months: *** Scene: Halloween party: two nerds dressed in ridiculous outfits: Him: Are you seeing anyone else?
Now, the third date is what works for me but if you’re ready at the end of the second date then go ahead and bring it up then, like I said before, chances are she’s not dating anyone else anyway.It doesn’t have to be a serious “there’s something I want to talk about”, just light-heartedly drop it into conversation and the rest will come naturally.If you’ve read the situation well and she feels the same then it should be a pleasant conversation and you can move on – in my experience, women only date one guy at a time anyway and tend to assume that you will do the same.You just shouldn't invest that much if they're not doing the same. I always went with the idea that dating=relationship, and anything before that point is running around or testing the water.
One might refer to it as going on a date, but not dating.
What are clues that someone can use to verify their relationship is serious- without “the conversation”?
