Well it looks like most of us are still having problems with dating, monogamy and relationships. So we can all hear the pin drop clearer, let me explain:
Is the act of going out on dates whereby one person socializes with a potential lover using a process that involves scheduled, usually exclusive, meetings of two people with mutual interest in one another. The only committment here is time you all agree upon to meet!
Is the specific connection between objects, entities or concepts. So yes ladies and gentlemen, we are ALL in some form of a relationship – STOP using this word to describe a level of commitment! Hell I have a relationship with my brush!
Is the custom or condition of having only one mate in a committed relationship, thus forming a couple.
Think about these very carefully. Your FULL understanding of the aforementioned definitions will greatly help you understand where you stand, what you want, and if he/she is ready for the same. If referenced, it will keep you from having false expectations and a constant feeling of unsatisfaction.
Try it out! It doesn’t hurt, I promise!
