Dating for months
Now, there's hooking up, friends with benefits, casual dating, and all manner of other things.
Yet none of these are "dating." There's no courtship, there's zero determining if you're compatible romantically or long-term. So let's call dating what it really is: a way to get to know a complete stranger to see if they're a possible romantic partner for the long haul.
A note to my boyfriend for the best six months I spent my whole life fantasizing over my “perfect” dream guy with a list of “unrealistic” expectations that seemed so important to me. You’ve showed me the value of life in even the littlest things you do for me.
You’ve taught me that our imperfections are what make us perfect.
Then one day, you wake up and it has been three months — which, for some reason, often means it’s time to sink or swim. Mc Dreamy has staying power beyond the initial ooey gooey phase, ask yourself these 6 questions.
In the beginning, you should have spent as much as time as possible getting to know your guy.
I'm just saying let's call dating what it actually is, and then everything else, well, whatever it actually is.
This is definitely why we butt heads so much, but also why we have such a strong bond.]So many boyfriends treat their girlfriends as “objects” or separate from their family. You’ve let me be a part of so many wonderful experiences with your friends and family I am forever grateful. And most importantly, I know I can trust you with my whole heart because you care.
I know saying someone cares “too” much is so overrated, but you do and I love that about you. If only our unexpected meeting would have foreshadowed all the crazy things we have been through.
You have helped me in ways that you will never know, and I just want to say thank you.
Before I met you, I didn’t realize how scared I was to try things, so thank you for giving me the courage to live life more “on the edge”.
