Dating versus a relationship
When you get comfortable is when you truly fall in love.
Edit: May not have been the answer you were looking for but meh.
But if two people are dating and enjoying each other's company, and both are thinking of being more exclusive, then eventually they will have "the talk": Will you be my boyfriend/girlfriend/etc.? You make the time and the effort to see each other. You share all your weird quirks, all your vulnerabilities, your family, your friends, everything. Too many fights that tear a couple apart are toxic to the very nature of the relationship.
Even if you two live far away, you set plans, and you commit to them. The more you share, and the more time you spend together, you are always considering: "Do I want to spend my time, my effort, my life with this person? Some fights are small fights, some fights are big fights. But you two fight will determine whether your relationship is strong enough to last. A person should stand by their partner, not against.
The whole point of being in a relationship is having found a person you enjoy spending time with.
When you are dating you see each other 2-3 times a week, sleep some times, go eat dinners, go on dates still.
At first we were kinda scared but after a while we said screw it lets just drive aimlessly exploring.
We found a lake neither of us knew about and it was relatively isolated.
Dating is the honeymoon phase and instances like that really shouldn't be happening when you are dating someone or you are in for a bad time down the road.I feel like it needed to be said because people stop "dating" after they begin a relationship. I'd say dating is about finding out if you are compatible with each other.Relationship is when you've already found out that you are a great match.Meeting more people in "group relationships" in this era. The difference between them seems to be smaller than here (Germany), thus making a question like yours possible (I was actually confused upon first reading). I am currently in a committed relationship for over a year now, but am also basing this off of my parents' experience as well.Dating and "being in a relationship" are both about getting to know the person.
