difference between dating being relationship.

Dating itself can be incredibly confusing, much less, defining what your relationship status is. The difference between dating and being in a relationship can be subtle. It is important to discuss relationship boundaries with the person you are dating, and be clear in your communications with them.

  1. Commitment

    • The difference between dating and being in a relationship is commitment. If you are going out with someone on a regular basis, and you and your partner have agreed to date only one another, then you are in a committed relationship.

      However, if you are dating a person and neither of you have agreed to date exclusively, then you are not in a relationship and you are both free to also date other people.

    2. Is it Mutual?

    • Some of the most heartbreaking relationship problems can be caused by lack of communication. Have you and your partner discussed your relationship status? Did you come to a mutual agreement about your relationship status as a couple? If any of this is unclear to you, at any point in the dating process, you should discuss it with your partner.

      According to “Dating for Dummies,” “Sexual intimacy, although not necessary to a committed relationship, is often one of its hallmarks.” Regardless of your intimacy level, you still want to be clear with your partner about your relationship status.

    3. Expectations

    • Prior to talking, you should sort out how you feel about the relationship, aside from anything your partner may feel, and decide what you want or need from your partner. The book, “Getting Love Right: Learning the Choices of Healthy Intimacy,” suggests asking yourself the following: “Are the people you are presently involved with capable of giving you what you want in a relationship? Do you share similar expectations for the relationship? Are you currently involved with someone who has the potential to be a healthy partner?”After giving these questions some thought, you will need to have a discussion with the person you are dating.

    4. Discussing it

    • So, you are confused about the status of your dating relationship and you need to have ‘the big talk’. How do you bring it up? The best way to have this discussion is directly, and in a friendly manner. Also, it is best talk in person. Discussing your dating life via phone, e-mail or text allows for miscommunication. Be direct and ask the person whom you are seeing if they want to be exclusive or not.

      If the person you are seeing is reluctant to discuss the status of your relationship, give them a few days to consider it. If they still shy away from discussion, this could be a red flag.

    5. Confusing Behaviors

    • Occasionally, you might date someone who displays confusing and sometimes manipulative actions or behaviors. For example: You have discussed it and have decided not to have a committed relationship, only casual dating. However, your date becomes possessive when your cell phone rings, or someone says hello. Or, your date will attempt to convince you that they are only seeing you, but they won’t actually commit. In either of these cases, you should reevaluate your relationship and consider whether or not you want to be involved with a person who is manipulative.

By the end of the day we all talk to a stranger but we never bother what they would have said if you never made the attempt to say a simple hello. try asking for direction in a new town or place n u will get the direction without much of a struggle from a stranger bt a friend will have to ask what your going to do their or somehow he /she will be left wondering what you after or how come u don’t know the place n they do.

friends become enemies but there is no stranger who will be a stranger as a smile puts off any harmful persons away.a calm face and focus wins the confidence of a stranger, most say you are a friend to yourself because the stranger in you has no rum to make the life you live but you make all the choices for the future is in the control n thou shall never look at the past since.

Don’t Judge me

Before time we are all equal, u may be powerful today but always remember that time is more powerful than you and circumstances change at any time meaning u don’t have to devalue or hurt anyone in this life. Love can entirely hurt but it aint that love which hurts you but the trust that you had bestowed upon the person and the heart break doesn’t kill you but it does justice to the expectations and hope that u were both building chances are that when the heat cools off the mind and dust settles down you always find yourself asking Y u were so irrational not to realize n see all the signs that were on display but don’t despair coz what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

I will Echo Nelson’s Words::” No one is born hating another person becoz of the colour of his skin or his background nor his religion. People must learn to hate if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love for love comes more naturally to  the human heart than its opposite.

based on the situation that has become of us and it come to be that u r just liking someone and not the Love that Lust brings forth>>>>

Situation  one

“There was girl who loved a boy so much she said to the boy, “If I told you that I liked you, would you take it as a joke?”

The boy said, “Yes I would.”
She asked, “Why?”
The boy replied, “Because I know you don’t like me, I know you love me!”
Situation Two
Love Means… (a girl and guy were speeding over 100 mph on a motorcycle)
Girl: Slow down. I’m scared.
Guy: No this is fun.
Girl: No its not. Please, it’s too scary!
Guy: Then tell me you love me.
Girl: Fine, I love you. Slow down!
Guy: Now give me a big hug. (Girl hugs him)
Guy: Can you take my helmet off and put it on? It’s bugging me.
In the paper the next day: A motorcycle had crashed into a building because of break failure. Two people were on the motorcycle, but only one survived. The truth was that halfway down the road, the guy realized that his breaks broke, but he didn’t want to let the girl know. Instead, he had her say she loved him, felt her hug one last time, then had her wear his helmet so she would live even though it meant he would die.
if we were honest with each other and both situations r what befalls us how much would u take in for the sake of love .Romance is more than just candles, flowers and a candlelit dinner.
