Haven't heard back on what day but I'm definitely not sitting around waiting for him. If we are "seeing" each other (as opposed to "dating"), shouldn't the in person contact increase? Give some time, think about it and then have a talk about how you are feeling.

Not put it all out there but try and see the next time you meet if you are both working on being exclusive with each other.

I'm facing a similar confusion with the person I'm seeing..dating..who knows, carebear.

is dating and being in a relationship the same thing-41

She's a very private person, that's something I am learning quickly.

I get why she doesn't tell her family (we grew up together, so her family would be marrying us off instantly if they knew we were even remotely romantically involved).

So it makes sense after two weeks (even after four months) that she's not treating it maybe more seriously or labeling it. Now, if it's still the same situation four months from now, then I've got questions. There are divorced couples that have closer and more intimate relationships that those who are still married.

And sometimes people who dislike each other have good sex.. It the quality of the relationship that matters, not what it is labelled.

Though I also sort of feel like a secret since she's not telling her friends or family about us.

We've been on and off for four months, though the latest on has been two weeks and she's done more to show genuine interest than ever before (taking pictures of me, joining me in activities I like to do, etc) so I try to remind myself that while I might move fast and let everyone instantly know when I am seeing someone, she is much more private. There is no difference if either partner is not hung up on labelling..

Sure, the part that scares me is she is not sharing it with anyone, but maybe she is just giving time so she can be sure this is the real thing.

People have their reasons for keeping it on the downlow, sometimes it just makes sense to not have outside interferrance so you both can focus on building your relationship together.

I want to know if seeing each other will lead to something more serious. We went from seeing each other 2x a week to now about 1x every 10 days or so.
