Most relationships go through a “gray” trial period where both partners are unsure if they're on the same page with feelings and the status of the relationship.This period is as exciting as it is emotionally tumultuous.Trying to “make it serious” is a universal thing, something both guys and girls do when they find a person they like and, although I am all for being honest with your feelings I don’t think that should give you or him the excuse to start pushing it.Casual dating is a marvelous way of getting to know all kinds of people, without having to feel tied down to anyone until you’re absolutely ready. That being said, it is important to remember that your dynamic with anyone, regardless of who it is, won’t be as intense or committed as in a serious relationship.You think you desire something serious with this particular guy—but before you do anything else, be sure. Bottom line: Be in a relationship where you feel good when you're without him, but you feel even better with him. 1 piece of advice is to never to bring up the "What are we? "It's like going to a party, turning off the music, turning on the lights, and asking, 'Are we all having a good time here? "A good relationship is built on momentum, and putting a stop to the fun to 'check in' is a surefire way to kill the romance."Let things progress naturally and look at the evidence: Does he try to see you whenever he's free?
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.
Sure, acting unavailable might work at the casual dating stage, but what happens after that? Learn an instrument, a language, or take dancing lessons. 2) Set Boundaries Why would someone commit to you if they’re getting everything they want without the commitment?
How long before insecurities, neediness, and jealousy creep in? If you’re struggling to find people willing to move beyond casual dating, there’s a good chance you’re giving too much.
A relationship is starting to get serious when you and your partner proudly display each other as significant others in the public eye.
You have no problem mentioning each other in tweets, posting photos together in Instagram pictures or including each other in Facebook status updates.
