When does it change from dating to a relationship?Page 4 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
When he lets you wear his favorite Abercrombie & Fitch shirt. . . .

When he wakes up early to watch you sleep. . . .

When he automatically reaches back for your hand when you go for a walk. . . .

When you skip desert so you can get back to the motel room. . . .

When he lets you try out an eggplant recipe on him. And smiles. (He hates eggplants). . . .

When you can take a five day road trip, and everyone's smiling at the end of it. . . .

When. . . .

Ah, heck -- *you* know when, doncha?

For women: after the second date. For men: after the second decade.

You think?????

I know many women that view sex that same way men do, just end up in the same place using a different road.

There are those that are sexual, but not in a relationship, such as fwb's, and others that are just together when feasible or possible with the way their lives are put together.

Some are long distance and see each other when possible, but because of the time between visits, might have others in their lives as well.

OT.......I believe that when you decide that you are exclusive totally is when you take the dating part out of it, and become a an exclusive relationship.

There are some that you date and have a relationship with, but you are not exclusive for whatever reasons exist.

I also know some that are married, but sex has stopped and yet they still have a relationship because of the children involved, finances, etc., and they keep going for those reasons.

With this in mind, the relationship part starts and finishes with the both of you being on the same page together, and communicating it openly and honestly.

Just my opinion......

Imagine how many of these questions would vaporize into the miasma if we humans weren't tempted to label every freakin' thing. As if just enjoying the fact that you've someone to spend time with--who cares if every moment isn't torture-analyzed, and that each phase doesn't have a formal name, or convey mystical meaning--isn't satisfaction enough.
