Are we in a relationship or just dating
You know it's going somewhere when your boyfriend or girlfriend takes the time and effort to go that extra mile to make you happy.This doesn't just mean buying you that necklace you've been purposefully ogling over online whenever he’s in the room (though it certainly doesn't exclude that! When you care about each other, small gestures happen frequently, to the point that you take care of each other as if you're taking care of yourselves.
Most relationships go through a “gray” trial period where both partners are unsure if they're on the same page with feelings and the status of the relationship.
This period is as exciting as it is emotionally tumultuous.
Picking up dinner or buying two movie tickets shows that you're willing to make sure you both are provided for.
There is a certain point, however, where you can let your guard down and know that the relationship is real and there's no sign it's going to end.
This is the point where you can begin feeling far more relaxed and secure.
