Still, dating labels for relationships mean more to a woman than they do to a man. He's not sure about your feelings for him and doesn't want to jump the gun. Acknowledge both your feelings about the label and his.
It can be awkward when the guy you're dating goes to introduce you to friends or business associates and doesn't know whether to call you're his girlfriend or not. Chances are, he won't even realize there's anything wrong with your relationship.
So the question is, if he acts like your boyfriend, takes down his dating profile, calls you daily, texts you daily, spends almost every night with you, says you're exclusive, and is affectionate in public, why won't he call you his girlfriend? Be prepared to leave the relationship if the answer isn't what you want to hear.I say we were “dating” in the beginning because we were regularly going on dates right off the bat.They started off as casual, and then things got a little more serious when we became exclusive.Our relationship is starting to suffer now because even though I say I’m fine with how things are, deep down this is really bothering me and I feel really hurt by the fact that even though I am his ‘girlfriend,’ he won’t acknowledge me in that way.Can you please shed some light on what’s going on here?
