What is the difference between exclusive dating and a relationship
It could be that one of you has intense feelings, and the other doesn’t.It could be that one of you wants to commit to a relationship, but the other one isn’t ready, despite having romantic feelings.They are monogamous and present themselves as a couple to the world.
The expectation is low, so marriage and family planning aren’t really on the table.
It may sound obvious, but people get tunnel vision and focus on the present, so it’s a good reminder: being in a serious relationship means you’re aiming for a future together.
There are too many couples out there that simply don’t work, for various reasons *immaturity, incompatibility, different goals, etc*.
Might as well see them on occasion, or maybe regularly, but not most of the time.
The minute you see them too much, you inch closer to something more serious.
