Defining the Relationship: Myths, Tips & Advice

Defining the Relationship: Myths, Tips & Advice / DTR
When it comes to relationships, whether it be friendship or romance, I am very much to the point. If I like you, you’ll know. I’m not above saying “You’re amazing! Are we friends now? We’re friends now. I love how we just clicked so well” or “Look, I like you, but I don’t want to be in a relationship with you.” In fact, a few dates in with my current boyfriend (then, not boyfriend) I decided I seriously liked him. But, we were both heading back to college in a few weeks and this meant I had to define the relationship *dunn dun dunnnn* or risk potentially being on the wrong page and not trying something I know might work.

So, we were in his basement, and I said, “Look. I actually really like you. I don’t know where you stand, but I’d really like to see where this goes. Would you want to be exclusive or something?” and, whaddayaknow! He said he felt the same, he would love that and he was really glad I’d brought it up because he was too nervous to do so. Then, a few months later he defined the relationship by officially asking me to be his girlfriend. He did this in a semi-grand gesture, whereas that same night I was planning to bring it up and have another DTR talk. Perfect timing on his part.

Anyway, defining the relationships can give you plenty of clarity and help you have a bit more certainty. Personally, I cannot stand not knowing where I stand with someone else. Here are some myths, tips and advice for defining the relationship!

It’s typical for a girl to have all of your friends huddled around her as she reads out texts or Facebook messages from her latest boy crush. Every girl has her best Sherlock Holmes hat on and you’re all analyzing the crap out of a sequence of messages. As she sits in the circle telling her friends about what he was like when they hung out the ultimate goal is to figure out: “Does he like me!?

Is he ignoring you or is he just busy? Does he like you and he’s just shy? Did he really not get my message or is he lying?! So many questions.

The constant, “Does he like me?” can get insane. While analyzing every detail of every conversation and interaction with a guy can give you some clues, here are seven signs he’s not interested, namely, seven signs he’s just not that into you. Keep in mind that these might not necessarily apply to each situation–every relationship and person is different.
