There are so many kinds of "relationships" these days. What defines a romantic relationship? How do you know when you are dating? What kind of relationship are you currently in or looking for?
does someone paying a lot of money to have a small plane fly above the house with an 'I love you' banner make this gesture any more significant (or less romantic) than someone simply spelling it out in snow outside the window?
Not an easy question to answer. Surely you'd know you were dating? isn't that the difference between a kiss on the cheek and a kiss on the mouth?
Depends on if the writing in the snow is yellow. If so, the plane with the banner wins.
I pretty find it a simple question (call me, "simple-minded", I guess). I figure, there are friends, and there are romantic relationships (or relationships that have the potential into turning into romantic ones). Once I've "assigned someone" the place of "friend and no possibility of ever being anything more", that's it. No confusion or blurring of lines for me. Since there's only so much time (and interest) for one romantic relationship, when I'm in one everybody else automatically gets "assigned in my mind" as a friend. When a potentially romantic, or romantic, relationship is what it ought to be; there's never a question about whether the person is a friend or "something more" (at least for me).
(Then, of course, the other relationships are relatives - but they don't count on this thread here.)
One reason I ask this question is because I am in a "relationship" with a guy. We see each other every other day. We kiss, cuddle, have sex, but because of both of our past failed relationships we refuse to call what we are in a "relationship".
you're in a relationship so stop expecting failure and enjoy what you have
You don't have to call it anything, just enjoy
