Dating for 6 months
The reason why more people aren’t ending up in wildly enthusiastic relationships is simply due to one thing: they’re not getting out of bad relationships soon enough.
They stay in something “ok” for months and even years on end, preferring the safety of mediocrity to the angst of loneliness.
A close pal starts dating someone who they claim is.
“I can’t ever imagine us arguing, he is the most amazing guy ever.” Sure!
A part of me believes I should know how it is going and shouldn't need for her to validate our affection. Again, I really want to hear if my concerns are normal, if I should discuss what I've mentioned above with my gf, and if my concerns are damaging the relationship. It's extremely difficult to maintain a genuine, mature relationship when you only meet on weekends. Lasting relationships require effort and attention. That doesn't exactly sound like what is happening in yours. And you know that, at least for now, you have a forward.
In the creative arts, there is a saying: “Good is the enemy of great.” And I’d say the same applies to relationships. If you’re not saying aloud (or at least to yourself) “I love you” to your mate in 6 months or less, hit the “next” button.
