7 months dating
I’m sure the author had good protective dating advice intentions for women.
The two of you could be on totally different pages. My first guess was that he may be EA or a commitment phobe as a big indicator of those are not meeting relatives.
Somewhere in the history of dating men, a woman decided, certainly without any dating tips, that if her man she’s dating isn’t introducing her to his friends, family, and parents, it meant the worst.
It meant that he’s not that into her, he’s not going to commit, he’s using her, he’s up to no good, and she’s wasting her time with him. But it could also mean, in the relationship milestone hurdles, that the lack of introduction to his inner circle is NOT a predictor of a break-up to come. In the vast land of Signs He Wants A Relationship, is being introduced to his closest entourage an absolute predictor to your future as a couple?
Whether it's a defining moment or the confirmation of wasted time - you need to do it. Just start a normal conversation about how crazy it is that you guys met and have been spending so much time together and let him do most of the talking, while you just direct the conversation into "what you guys are" topic. Cheers, I see your concerns..should mention this to him, just the way you said on this forum. Take it from me: By the 6 month mark you should know his family and his friends, and he should know your family and your friends.
It's possible that he may be keeping you away because he doesn't want his friends or family to spoil your relationship. We were sleeping together, spent several days a week together, I had met his entire family, we had gone on trips together..we had never had any sort of exclusivity talk. ) While we were at his best friend's wedding, he introduced me as his "friend." I did a double take. Just ask him whether or not he considers the two of you to be in an exclusive, committed relationship. If he says "no," ask him if he sees it going in that direction, and if so, what has to happen for it to get there. Also by this time, the both of you should know where the relationship is going - marriage or killing time till you find someone else.
