Been dating a couple of months
I’ve been emphasising something over the past few months that I feel it’s time to revisit: Dating is a discovery phase.Use the period from when you meet whether it starts out online or in the ‘real world’ as an opportunity for you both to discover the ‘facts’ about one another and assimilate whether you want to progress…or opt out.This question is an excerpt from Group Therapy in our Très Sugar Community. My man and I have been dating steadily for 3 months and we've known each other for longer.We've been intimate, I chill with his friends and he hangs with mine.
He says he knows that when we get into a relationship it will be a long one... But it's driving me crazy that we are still not a couple because we're not in a monogamous relationship.However, when I hear stories about disappointment, frustration, and insecurity about dates that haven’t worked out, there is a recurring theme: Do you know what this also means?– They were too far along in investment and illusions to have their feet in reality enough to be working out whether this person was someone that they actually should be with.I've met his family (I'm going to a wedding this weekend with him for his cousin).He's told me the reason why he doesn't want to "rush" into something is because he doesn't want to get hurt.
You need more than physical and sexual attraction – you should be getting an initial sense of their values and whether they treat you with care, trust and respect, and of course match words with actions.
