Should dating become relationship Free adult chat sites bolton
I don’t think there’s an easy answer here, and I don’t think it’s an either/or scenario.
It’s not like you are dating someone, and then after a magic number of dates or hours spent together you are now in a relationship (and no longer dating). And if and when the relationships starts to become more serious, you think of it less as someone you are dating and more as someone you are in a committed relationship with.
Someone’s reasons for dating will impact how they approach it, so WHY someone is dating (or in a relationship) is pretty damned important.
And ideally these reasons are known to the other person – because there can be a lot of potential for hurt feelings when people are on different pages.
The question about when dating has gone from a casual thing to something more takes on additional importance when you are older, especially when you have come out of a long term relationship or marriage. I had never thought about that, but I think it’s true.
If one person is hoping to find the love of their life while the other person is just looking for sex, someone will likely end up being hurt.
But often people aren’t up front about what they are looking for. I do think it’s important to understand (for yourself at least) what you are looking for.
Saying you are doesn’t mean you are going to marry them.
It just means that you are interested in THEM, and want to learn more.
