First of all, it's Saturday! Can I get a woo-hoo?
As the new Saturday Buzz Girl... I've decided to concentrate on a very weekend subject... ahem... Boys.
So, here's the question I'm throwing out this week...
How do you know when it's time to do the dreaded DTR (Defining The Relationship) talk?
You go from going on a date, to "seeing" each other, to "dating" right? So when does he like, become your boyfriend? This has always puzzled me and maybe because I'm a dictionary fan, I always try to find a definition of what we *are*.
But the not-so-simple act of having the DTR can be disastrous. What if he thinks you are just seeing each other? What if he has no time for a girlfriend but wants to "date" you? Does this mean you should also date other people? Does this mean there is no future? Does this mean maybe you shouldn't like him so much because you're going to get your heart handed back to you via text message?
If you start the DTR talk, there is no turning back. You can't suck the words back into your mouth and pretend you were mumbling to yourself about whether or not to watch Family Guy. To attempt the DTR is to go the distance and quite possibly get yourself stomped.
But not to do the DTR talk? Also disastrous. What if you are thinking one thing about your dating status, and he is totally on another page?
Example: You think you're his girlfriend, then you see him having coffee with a pretty girl. He thinks you're "casually dating" so when you go a little bananas he doesn't get it...
See what I mean?
So, that is the question... when should you have the dreaded DTR?
