    What's the deal with 'pseudo' dating? Has anyone ever turned one into a real relationship - how?

    Boy likes girl and has done for over 10 months. Boy flirts with girl. Boy hugs and kisses girl (not on the lips). Boy constantly chases girl and wants to spend all of his time with her (even ignoring his own friends for her). Boys face lights up whenever girl enters the room. Boy wines and dines girl (and pays for everything). Boy has not officially asked girl out. Boy is not gay. Both boy and girl are single. Girl is majorly confused!

    I don't know what pseudo dating is. Since I've never heard of it, I'm going to leave this one alone.

    The girl should just go with the flow and pace of the relationship and not stress about it, just enjoy dating.  But if the girl is feeling confused because the 'non-boyfriend' is not hinting about turning this into a proper relationship with her she should find a way to tell him her feelings and clarify where the 'friendship' is heading, there's no other way around it!  Yes, you can turn this situation into a real relationship but only by starting to open up about your feeings and needs etc.  If you can't find a way to do that there is a chance of it just going on like it is...

    Thanks Stricktly, that's what girl is going to do. Why do us chicks tend to over think things so much smile

    @ mischievousme (love the nick btw) pseudo dating is basically dating but without the all romantic/sex stuff or commitments of a regular girl/boyfriend relationship. It can lead to confusion as you don't know if you're just platonic friends or whether something else is going on. Hope that makes sense.
