Am i his girlfriend or are we just dating dating a borderline personality
Instead he'll call you his friend in public, or will tell his friends that he's been hanging out with you, even when he knows and shows you that his feelings are deeper for you. He might have work pressures or other issues on his mind and be completely happy with the way your relationship is heading.
To a guy, the label of girlfriend makes him think of additional responsibilities, which may include financial, legal, or even taking the walk down the aisle, which he isn't just ready for yet. Express why it's important to you to acknowledge your status as a girlfriend in public and how you value the relationship.
Our relationship is starting to suffer now because even though I say I’m fine with how things are, deep down this is really bothering me and I feel really hurt by the fact that even though I am his ‘girlfriend,’ he won’t acknowledge me in that way.
Can you please shed some light on what’s going on here?
Of course, life has a cute, charming way of making things unnecessarily complicated, so there are about one million different stages you can undergo within the “hooking up” and “dating” stages.
But overall, odds are you're doing something that falls under one of the two umbrellas.
It's no secret that a man usually falls in love before the woman does. His feelings for you are fluctuating and he might be in conflict between being in a relationship and being single guy. He's just not that into you and doesn't see you in his future. Ask him if it's a good time to talk about something that's on your mind.
But in general, the mid-to-late 20s shows a dating shift: We're closer to finding “the one,” and anyone we take seriously will, for lack of a better word, be taken seriously.
The only problem is he won’t call me his girlfriend.
I’ve tried bringing it up and when I do he almost makes me feel guilty about it and says things like ‘what we have is so special, why do we have to label it?
The other day, my friends and I were talking (read: extensively gossiping) about an acquaintance and her new boy.
I tried to say they were “dating.” Someone else said they weren't dating because they weren't exclusive.
