When the relationship is getting better, but you’re still unsure about where you stand, go with something that reveals how just thoughtful you are.
For example, a friend of mine surprised her guy with tickets to a hockey game – again not too pricey – capped off with a night at a local restaurant he loves.
I keep telling him he’s not clear with what he wants and that if they were initially friends, she may believe that hook-up or not, they’re still just that—friends. If you don’t want this to go any further, you need clarity. That’s the problem with how we date today: the lines are so blurred going in that they don’t get any clearer on the way out.
But when you tell your girlfriends that a birthday is looming and you need a gift, suddenly the record skips (or i Pod skips…just go with me) and you are all frozen-faced, staring at one another blankly.The point is that you show interest in At this point, nothing can get better..except if it was official, that is.I will say that if the person you’re dating has stuck around for this long, they probably don’t want to leave. As usual, sometimes it takes a strong woman to make the first step. Here’s a great example: A friend of mine gave her new guy a “Day Of Favorites.” From start to finish the day was about doing fun things he enjoyed – a nice breakfast, a scenic drive, a stellar lunch spot, a good movie, and then a great night out on the town.You’re not actually breaking up, because you were never really together. But it’s socially acceptable to use the fade away method if you’ve only been seeing someone for a short amount of time. Tapping Out When I was dating, this was my favorite method to break things off with someone I dated for less than two months.You’re not completely disappearing on a person, but you’re not making yourself available either. A quick text or call letting them know you’re no longer interested in pursuing this, is a direct and considerate way to end your unofficial relationship.
