Start Dating for 3 months

Dating for 3 months

I've met his family (I'm going to a wedding this weekend with him for his cousin).

Of course, being official or unofficial are just words, and ultimately titles don’t make relationships…but commitments do.

So if a man can’t figure out if he wants to officially commit to me after months of serious dating, I choose to believe he won’t decide by me lingering around “playing” girlfriend for too long.

Many times, we can save ourselves the heartache by knowing simply when it’s time to exit a situation. Or for my no-nonsense girls, maybe you give a man three months to decide.

You're lying in bed with the man you've fallen madly in love with. Do you expect him to answer, "Now that I've met YOU, I'm going to make sure my divorce is final next week so we can move in together, get married, merge our families and live happily ever after! I do know a few divorced guys who dive in head first into every relationship and end up divorced three or four times.

Just like any situation with the opposite sex, there are exceptions to the rule, because there is no one-size-fits-all set of rules for every relationship; but being unofficial for too long while one person wants more is usually a situation destined for disaster.

Someone’s feelings will end up hurt if it drags on too long.

If it hadn’t happened in 365 days, what made me think that on day 366, my year-long wish would be granted?
