Dating vs. Being BF/GF: What's the difference?
His Answer: Tyler, 15, says, “All guys have different terms for what is going on and may feel uncomfortable about using certain words to define a relationship.”
Decoded: Don’t judge your relationship based on a title. Some guys don’t like the term “boyfriend” or “in a relationship” because it could be too much pressure for them.
Your Move: It doesn’t matter what he calls your relationship when talking to your friends, but just make sure that the two of you are on the same page. Sit down and have a chat about how you two are in this and the commitment expected from each person.
