I’m going to be honest with the ladies – fellas forgive me – the average man knows where he wants a relationship to go in 48 hours (or less).
Men play dumber than we are for the sake of avoiding accountability but when a man walks up to you he already has an idea of what he wants from you.
@Wisdom Is Misery: I’m thinking there is no reason to date a man over the age of 25 longer than 12 months if you want a ring from him. @Wisdom Is Misery: If you’re still “seeing where things go” on the 13th month. You’re wasting your time Plenty of men took exception with these statements but I already knew that was going to happen, since men don’t like timelines when it comes to relationships because men don’t like being held accountable.
What surprised me was the number of women that took exception. I’m not sure why people were shocked and appalled I suggested you shouldn’t waste time in pointless relationships after the age of 25 when the US Census Bureau states the average US man will marry by age 28; and woman by 27.
It's great—except that you have no idea where things stand.
He has yet to introduce you as his girlfriend or bring up being exclusive, and you're craving that "couple" title and the security that comes with it.
I am looking for a serious relationship, but still have fun with him.Above all, keep the tone light and maintain open lines of communication.If you feel confident at this point that you want things to be serious, go ahead and tell him, Trespicio says. Other times you really like someone and it doesn’t work out, and you’ve probably wondered if there was anything you could’ve done differently. Most of us have experienced a serious relationship by accident, usually when we really like the person we’re dating and it just naturally develops into something more.
