|"It's been 6 months...where are we going?"|
You see she liked him and he liked her. They sneaked kisses here and there; they went for dinner dates and took trips to the cinema, the clubs and did other exciting stuff together. They also had in-depth conversations about what was going on with their lives their dreams, their ambitions and they even had sex a couple of times, but still no official label.
Conventional wisdom used to be that if she likes him and he likes her; and they engaged in all of the above the label most appropriate to be applied to them is that of 'couple'
In the piece Danielle described the different stages of a committed but non-committed relationship:
At six months - things are great, he is great, everything is great –no label applied.
“So… are you a couple.. then?”
“What is he saying, THEN?”
“What's going on with you and him....THEN?”
If your in an 'open' relationship you know your free to see other people.
