We are not officially dating yet
There are some things you can do (mostly by just shifting your perspective) that can help tremendously. For starters, I have seen a lot of women get caught up on this issue and as a result, they bring it up more and more, smothering every ounce of joy from the relationship.
At that point the relationship stops being fun and full of happiness and starts becoming more like a battle of wills.
”If a guy won’t call you his girlfriend after a month (two months tops), then I would say it means that he’s enjoying the relationship exactly where it is and at this moment will not take it any further unless he is inspired to.
I guess the simple answer as to why he won’t call you his girlfriend is because he doesn’t have to.
Maybe he just got out of a relationship (like in this case) and does not want another commitment that ends in pain.To a guy, calling a woman his girlfriend is typically a huge pain in the ass and if the woman is making herself so available and so committed when he hasn’t committed to anything, why would he call her his girlfriend?If a store was giving you free stuff, would you say ‘no please, let me pay you for it’? Now, with that said, that does not necessarily mean that there’s no chance of you becoming his girlfriend.It is important that you keep your time and company only as available as he is willing to be – match your level of commitment to his so that you are not left hanging. If you like the relationship for exactly what and where it is, then stay.If you are not satisfied with it, exactly as it is, then you should keep looking.
Another trap is being in a relationship that you ARE totally happy in, then letting your friend’s “advice” get into your head. One woman who is pretty much happy in her relationship goes out with her girlfriends.
