Man im dating wont
There are a multitude of reasons why he may not call you his girlfriend.Maybe he just got out of a relationship (like in this case) and does not want another commitment that ends in pain.’ I know he had a painful breakup with his girlfriend before me which I think might be a part of this, so I’m trying to be understanding but I don’t think one thing should have anything to do with the other.Sometimes I’m okay with how things are, but other times I get really angry, especially when my friends get on my case about it.And from a guy’s perspective, when a relationship gets like this, it becomes much less likely for a guy to want to stay.Why would the guy want to deepen a relationship when it doesn’t feel good and seems to only be getting worse?As a result, their “advice” is more about the women projecting their own frustrations outward onto that girl’s relationship.
But at the same time, it is a sobering reality to see a relationship for exactly what it is and not what it could be.Maybe he likes you, but he doesn’t want to feel “tied down” by a relationship.Maybe he likes you a lot, but he knows that he’s not in a position where he can fully commit to you because he has a lot on his plate to deal with and will continue to for the foreseeable future. Regardless of the reason, it’s nobody’s job to play psychiatrist or detective.The relationship at the moment is either working for you or it’s not.
I think there are a few traps in this sort of situation.
It is important that you keep your time and company only as available as he is willing to be – match your level of commitment to his so that you are not left hanging. If you like the relationship for exactly what and where it is, then stay.
