As opposed to dating
Two people who are in a relationship with one another are undoubtedly going to have a very deep and strong connection with each other.
You know your boyfriend well, and he knows you incredibly well too.
You should be able to tell him anything without judgement, and he do the same for you.
There is undeniable trust in your relationship, no hidden secrets or lack of loyalty.
Once you are in a relationship, the two of you should be monogamous with each other.
And not only should you see the potential, but you and your boyfriend should actively be working towards that future goal.
And don’t forget- you both should be each others’ cheerleaders, offering encouragement at every turn.
Like I mentioned earlier, if you’re not in a relationship, you’re not being introduced to anyone close to him; and that’s the way it’s supposed to be.
You’re probably seeing each other for a date once, maybe twice a week, and that’s it.
Now, if the dates start occurring more often, then the two of you are probably working towards being in an exclusive relationship.
