Dating or boyfriend
I understand not wanting to be lonely, but let's be honest… Nonetheless, sooner or later, that feeling of being entirely alone will creep back up on you.
The worst part being that these sorts of relationships never work and just about always end badly.
In addition, and being very direct here, when it comes to guys: if they have sex with you, if they see you on a regular basis and if they introduce you to their friends, as far as they are concerned, the issue is closed. And if they did not bring up the subject of 'let's be boyfriend and girlfriend' that means just that.
They are dating; they are not necessarily your boyfriend, because that means commitment. And of course, there is the dreaded stage of rejection.
