I don’t care how many guys Taylor dates and neither should anyone else. Here’s why I was left so confused: what is dating to Taylor Swift?
The article immediately made all of us here at the Gurl office wonder what dating means to Tay-Tay herself…
Nearly every Hollywood romantic comedy hinges on a dramatic moment when a couple finally must “define the relationship.” Imagine the scene where one lover boards an airplane intending to leave the other forever — only to remain standing on the tarmac as the plane takes off. “We were meant to be together.” In real life, however, endings usually are not quite so predictable—and that’s where “the talk” comes in.
The define-the-relationship discussion involves questions such as, “Are we ‘just friends’ or more than that?
Even if you’re actively One of the first and most common questions is simply “when should you have the defining the relationship” talk? However, as with navigating the tricky world of gift giving there some guidelines as to whether to have it sooner or later. Dating is a cumulative experience; the more often you see each other, the more likely that you’re going to want to have the DTR convo sooner rather than later.
When you’re seeing each other once or twice a week at the most – usually just on weekends – then there is a lower level of implied intimacy and emotional investment than a couple that sees each other three to four times a week.
It’s probably too vague to ask, “So where do we stand in this relationship? Pick a private place where emotions can be expressed without being on public display. If that’s the case, don’t assume complete rejection.
Straight talk: there are two phrases that a woman can say that will instill ball-shrinking terror in the heart of every man.
The first is “We need to talk.” The second is “Where do you think this relationship is going?
Seeing each other more often than that tends to mean you’re more into each other and you’re headed towards something more involved than a fuck-buddy relationship where you’re both enjoying the sex but you’re not interested in anything more.
In fact, if you’ve been finding that you’re seeing each other more and more often lately, that’s often a sign that you’re both becoming more and more interested in one another and invested in your relationship together – a sign that you should consider discussing just where you think the relationship is going. If you’re getting together twice or three times a week on your lunch break, but not spending extended periods of time together, then the DTR conversation can be pushed back in the relationship timeline.
