Dating what are we
I would like to insist that couples, whether dating or in a relationship have that conversation as to what kind of item they are to avoid assumptions, confusion and maybe even heart break. When you’re dating, you’re allowed to go out on dates with as many people as possible without expecting questions.This is where a chic trips when she realises this guy who has been taking her on dates has been to other dates with other ladies at the same time. When you’re dating someone, you don’t really have claim to them unlike when in a relationship.Think: He went out without you on Saturday (no biggie, you're not officially dating, right? Here are three tips to keep in mind when navigating the "How About Us? ) and fills you in the next morning on the woman who blatantly hit on him on the dance floor. You've been dating a while now, and he seems really into you. After you spend a certain amount of time with a guy, inevitably, you must have the "So, what are we? You can tell it's time for "the talk" when, suddenly, instead of spending one weeknight and one weekend night together you're suddenly seeing each other every-other-day (and he even lets mentions he'd like to spend even time with you). Spending increasingly more time together is a sign of progress, but to what end is unknown until it is spoken.

I’m working to get out of that funk and start dating again, so let me give you the same pep talk I recently gave myself. When you date, it’s like you’re flexing a huge muscle, but instead of your body getting ripped, it’s your interpersonal skills that are getting stronger.
Too often, people want to fast forward through the dating process and get to a relationship.
That is why I insist that you need to date many people (maybe at the same time) so you can see who best matches your list.
Nowadays when I think about meeting someone new for a drink, I get totally exhausted and decide to just stay home.
I’ve basically thrown myself into a career and abandoned any hopes of finding a man in the process.
Why is this an important step in the relationship process (even if you decidely do not want any strings attached)? The first is that each person wants to know what to expect and how much to invest emotionally in whatever you two have going on. Take some time on your own to think about where you see this going and be able to articulate what you want and need to be happy in a relationship.2.
