Okay people around me seem to be getting attached lately and I now kinda seem like on the verge of being in one so I can't help but ponder.... how do people really know that they evolve from just dating into being a couple.
When I think back at my past relationships... I can't remember the turning point when we became a couple. I just remember waking up one day and thinking...
"Hold on... when did I become "Darling" and what are we doing grocery shopping together?"
I mean how do you cross the line from being John and Jane to boyfriend and girlfriend?
Here are a few ways that some of my friends have told me in the past.
1) Holding Hands
According to Nicholas here who just recently got attached, he says you'll know when you're in a relationship when the guy holds the girl's hand in public when walking and the girl doesn't resist. Then he does it again another time on another occasion and if she still doesn't resist then you're officially a couple.
Some people say that the deal of being in a relationship is when you make that first kiss.
And when I say kiss, I don't mean a kiss on the cheek like what Dawn Yang gave this lucky dude.
I mean an actual kiss like that.
When I was studying in the UK I had a close British friend that went by the name Alex. He was a babe magnet, he came from a well-to-do family and he was charming and confident to the extent that it was actually beginning to border arrogance (He never went over that border though).
So anyway, Alex used to tell me two things.
The first thing he said to me when he found out that I had a girlfriend back in Malaysia at the time was
"Mate... what the hell is that for? As if your dick could reach that far!"
Now the second thing he used to tell me was
"Mate... until you shag a girl you're dating, you're just best friends that kiss".
One of my friends told me that you know you're in a relationship with the girl when you like her and yet you can fart in front of her.Please tell me this is not true guys.
5) "Will you be my girlfriend?"
This is what some people do. And heck I got together with my first teenage girlfriend this way.
Just ask "Will you be my girlfriend?"
And if she says "Yes" then yay!!
If she says
"I can't... I like you too much as a friend"
Then you're totally screwed.
6) "Meet my Girlfriend"
Now here's what I think in my opinion is when you're really in a relationship.
It's when a guy goes out with this girl that he's kinda dating, then suddenly gets to know a really really really friggin hot chick which lets say is named Jenny.If the guy introduces you to that hot chick and says
"Hi Jenny, meet my GIRLFRIEND".
Then you're in a relationship.
