When is dating considered a relationship

The truth is we had a talk like adults.” -- Eric, 26 “I knew it was love, once I was in the bathroom shaving his back.

On a more serious note, I had surgery back in January and in all my pale, hair-matted, morphine glory, he stayed with me in the hospital holding my hand until the nurses kicked him out.

And that’s the whole thing of it, depending on our life situations we all have different priorities when it comes to the length of relationships we’re seeking.

These things might worry you, but something else makes your palms sweat and your pulse hit triple digits: asking someone out on a date.

Seeing each other more often than that tends to mean you’re more into each other and you’re headed towards something more involved than a fuck-buddy relationship where you’re both enjoying the sex but you’re not interested in anything more.

In fact, if you’ve been finding that you’re seeing each other more and more often lately, that’s often a sign that you’re both becoming more and more interested in one another and invested in your relationship together – a sign that you should consider discussing just where you think the relationship is going. If you’re getting together twice or three times a week on your lunch break, but not spending extended periods of time together, then the DTR conversation can be pushed back in the relationship timeline.

” It’s the dreaded “Defining The Relationship” talk… The DTR talk has achieved an almost mythical level of terror amongst people – especially men, because it almost always comes at the worst possible moment, and suddenly you have to make decisions that will affect you for the rest of your relationship.

For many men, it represents a massive, possibly undesirable, change in the nature of your relationship with this person. As much as it would be nice to have a handy rule of thumb like “three weeks after you start sleeping together” or a concrete date, every relationship is different and, as a result, the timing will be different as well.
