Dating exclusivity marriage
All that that set of labels has to do with, is to identify someone simultaneously by their sex, and by the general kind of relationship that you have with them.If you are spending time and energy with them, but have no interest in them being any sort of a mate, then they are just called "friend." In fact, I suggested to my sons, that they could help ME avoid confusion when they talk about their female acquaintances, if they would use "girlfriend" to indicate romantic interest of some sort, and use "friendgirl" to indicate that the gal is literally just a friend. since many people do have more than one boyfriend or girlfriend, the term "dating exclusively" means something entirely different.Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...The default is to spend your time together when possible, not ask for a date and wonder if the answer will be yes.The exclusivity only means that when you ask for a date and the answer is ``I'm busy that night,'' that ``I'm busy that night'' doesn't mean ``I'm busy boinking someone else that night.''That's news to me.
Sounds to me like someone isn't sure what they want. The whole "dating exclusively" does not mean I'd have a girlfriend.
It was established early on that neither of us date multiple people at the same time and that we will be/are exclusive.
As I said, a distinction is made occasionally when we talk. Talk to your boyfriend to get things squared away!!!
If anything, people begin as acquaintances, move to "dating," with "bf/gf" labels being applied after they have established that they no longer have to show ID before asking each other out.
When they then move on to "getting serious," and want to establish exclusivity, then they add that separate label, almost like a Scout Achievement badge, to any existing labels they've already applied.
