My man and I have been dating steadily for 3 months and we've known each other for longer. We've been intimate, I chill with his friends and he hangs with mine. I've met his family (I'm going to a wedding this weekend with him for his cousin).
He's told me the reason why he doesn't want to "rush" into something is because he doesn't want to get hurt. His ex destroyed him, but I'm not the type of girl to do that. He says he knows that when we get into a relationship it will be a long one... so he's making sure...? But it's driving me crazy that we are still not a couple because we're not in a monogamous relationship. Neither of us aren't being monogamous but it's freaking me out. I trust him, but how much longer should this go on? All I want is to be his formal girlfriend. Just so I don't have to be called a friend anymore, because I feel like so much more.
I want to respect his space and thoughts... I just want to know how much longer should this really take?
