Stage between dating and relationship
What was once explainable using a single digit binary code now requires the decimal system. Looking from the outside in, on the other hand, gives shape to the confusing and convoluted dating culture that we have created for ourselves.
Here are the more easily recognizable stages: Regardless of whether you met on the street, in a coffee shop, at your yoga class or in the park, the first date tallies up to one thing: either a successful or failed one-night stand.
It doesn’t matter what the initial intentions are – not as if you know what the other person’s intentions are anyway – on the first date you’re either sleeping together or not.
Depending on the results of this stage, you’ll move on to stage 2.
Not sure how you did it – most never make it this far – but you did it… You’re not yet “dating” in the traditional sense, but you are going on dates.
I understand this can be confusing, but what about this process isn’t?
Jessica is a Media Production student at Ryerson University.Or, as I have already mentioned, it could be the end of the road.After a couple of dates, it turns out that you aren’t really interested in each other.And since you never had a relationship, you never had a breakup.
You can message them or like their profile picture six months down the road and it won't even be weird.
You put in the time and effort, your liver has certainly paid for it and it is now time to finally get to know the person you’ve been having sex with all this time. Keep all the lovey-dovey romance stuff to yourself and, whatever you do, do not look him/her in the eyes when in the midst of coitus.
