How to Determine You're In a Relationship

Group Therapy: We Need to Have "The Talk"

This question comes from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

Hi everyone,

I've been dating this guy for about 6/7 months now, and we have established we are exclusive. However, I've got to that point where I need to know if we are actually in a relationship now, or if there is any potential.

We see each other once or twice a week, and speak on the phone everyday and before bed. Does this say something? However, neither of us have brought up our status. When we spend time together, we have playful fights and things, but we never "act" like we're a couple, i.e. hold hands, kiss etc.

I know he's had bad experinces in the past, so this could be an issue. I just wanted some advice as to how I could bring this topic up with him, without sounding too pushy. Thanks.
