Should dating become relationship
But I think that question (and much of that post actually) is very relevant to dating. People are looking for certain things in life; and when looking for someone to share parts of their life with they have to be approaching it in a way that works for them.
I commonly talk about how one of the struggles in relationships is finding the balance between “me” and “we”.
You may not understand what you want, but if you have no idea of what you are looking for how will you even know when you find it?
Back to the question about when dating becomes a relationship (casual to more serious), I guess this begs the question of what exactly a relationship is.
As I said above, I see the transition from dating to relationship happening when the nature of the relationship starts to include “we”.I was out with a buddy recently and we got onto the topic of dating.I’ve been thinking and writing about relationships for a number of years now, but my thoughts have always come from the perspective of someone who was in a long term relationship.Not that my buddy Gandalf is a fur clad wildling woman, but hopefully you get the idea. I’m not sure if I necessarily look at the world through rose colored glasses, but I tend to look for the best in people and I can be too trusting.I have long underestimated how much ego can come into play (in a bad way) when people make decisions, or maybe it’s more accurate to say when people simply act without making decisions; and how people can be willing to hurt others in order to get what they want.
