So the question is, if he acts like your boyfriend, takes down his dating profile, calls you daily, texts you daily, spends almost every night with you, says you're exclusive, and is affectionate in public, why won't he call you his girlfriend? Be prepared to leave the relationship if the answer isn't what you want to hear.It's obvious that you're an important part of his life, or otherwise he'd be out with his drinking buddies instead of holding you in his arms every night. First of all, don't get overemotional about it yet. He likes the friends-with-benefits arrangement and regular sleepovers. If he says you mean the world to him but still doesn't assign a label to your relationship, believe him at his word.A man also is usually the first to say "I love you" to a woman. If he cares about you, he'll know there's something wrong and will want to fix it.Still, dating labels for relationships mean more to a woman than they do to a man. He's not sure about your feelings for him and doesn't want to jump the gun. Acknowledge both your feelings about the label and his.So let’s be real here, because some times that’s needed.If too many of these signs resonate with you, then chances are, s/he’s just not that into you.You might wonder if you should give him the big ultimatum about your relationship status, let it slide, or have a conversation about mutual respect and expectations in a relationship. Before you go having the relationship talk and cause an explosion or breakup prematurely, look at these signs to determine where you fit on his relationship totem pole. He might not be ready to change his Facebook relationship status or go ring shopping, but you might be on the track to falling in love.
I’ve recently realized that a lot of the lines are blurred.But if you’re not seeing anyone else, and you’re seeing a lot of each other what on earth is it if it’s not a relationship?One friend (who wishes to remain anonymous lest her non-boyfriend reads this) explains: “I’ve been seeing this guy for four months now – we’re dating and see each other a couple of times a week. My suggestion is, after a reasonable amount of time together, have a calm conversation with your guy.
He'll show you from his actions how important you are to him.
