2 months of dating
People were upfront with each other and it was understood by the other’s actions that the intention was to go for the long haul/get married. Nowadays, people prefer to “sample the goods first”, then decide if someone is worth a relationship. (; Some 40 or so years ago, the moment you had sex with someone, you were officially “”boyfriend/girlfriend” and therefore in a relationship.In some situations, how long you’ve been seeing each other is relevant but in others, it is not.If you were seeing each other once a week or so, and rarely talking in between, technically it was not a “relationship” yet.You’ve both agreed that officially you are now “boyfriend/girlfriend” 4. You’ve both introduced the other to close friends and family 6.You both are comfortable enough with each other to let your guards down — and just be yourselves. You’ve both decided you will not be seeing anyone else 8.
You’ve at least had one major disagreement and successfully resolved it 9.You’ve had a conversation about where things are headed/future of the relationship 10.The emotional connection between the two of you has continuously grown stronger and more intimate.If all or at least 8 of these things happened in the 2 months you were together, then it was a “break-up.” But if you didn’t get to the “relationship” level, then consider it, “just not interested anymore”.
Question: If you are dating someone for 2 months and then she decides to end things, could this be considered a “break up” ? This means that if things are not explicitly communicated, it’s hard to tell when it ends whether it’s a break-up or “just not interested anymore”. And it’s not just boys and men doing it anymore, even girls and women are playing the field.
