After a few dates with a guy, you feel like this could lead to something, when suddenly he falls off the face of the earth.
Or it’s been months—he’s even uttered the word “girlfriend”—and out of nowhere he says he’s not ready for a relationship.
If he only hits you up on a Saturday night at 2 AM and wants you to come over, it doesn't count. He'll call on Wednesday to ask if you're free on Saturday, not shoot you a message at 8 PM to see if you want to get a beer because he doesn't have anything better to do.
If you're just a hookup or he isn't interested in pursuing anything serious, you probably won't even meet the friends, let alone the family. He probably doesn't want to tell his parents you two are just having casual sex. He's not keeping his options open: He wants to see YOU.
Then the stresses of meeting his friends, dividing your time and—dare we say it?
It’s not always easy, but Remember, that a relationship consists of two (or more! You and your partner should have equal say and should never be afraid to express how you feel.How you choose to deal with your disagreements is what really counts.Both people should work to communicate effectively.I mean, there's nothing wrong with some amazing between-the-sheets time, but if you want a relationship, he needs to like you with your clothes on too. You'll speak most days, even if it's about mundane things and only for a few minutes.You know roughly what's going on in each other's lives and often have a quick catch-up after a long day. Whether you’re looking for a relationship or are already in one, make sure you and your partner agree on what makes a relationship healthy.
