Casual dating to serious relationship
If either party is consistently unavailable on weekends, they're still shopping.
We both have stuff at the other person's home If you are comfortable with their things in your personal space and they are similarly content, then you've moved past casual.
I use three primary factors for determining if we're casual or committed: We spend our weekends together You can't date around if you don't add it into your schedule.
If one of you never leaves anything in the other's home and is constantly giving stuff back, they are not ready to commit.If they throw something at you, congratulations, you are now in a committed relationship but, if you value your plates and your pets and would prefer they not be flung across the room, then you might want to consider a different tactic. I was trained as an economist, so I keep trying to cram logic and rationality into my relationships. I tried asking where they see the relationship going and what status they think we should have.That's about as sexy and endearing as the average police interrogation, so I don't suggest it unless you've got a hyper-logical partner.My girlfriends say I need to tell him right now that I want the title, or I’m leaving.(They’re all single or divorced, so I don’t know if their advice is any good.) There has to be a better way than either of those, and I’ve already tried telling a previous guy I dated what I wanted, and he walked away. Dear Stacie, Right now, you’re in a pretend relationship… But as you correctly said, he hasn’t made anything official, so you know you’re not his girlfriend. First, I want to congratulate you on your patience and easygoing way.
