Weve been dating for three months
For men brought up in the hook-up culture, being a FWB is the ideal.
"But after you spend some time together, that perfect mask might start to slip, and you start seeing the real person." And this can happen at any time, says Kristin Zeising, Psy D, a sex therapist in San Diego.If you never talk about your feelings, and then you and your partner are already very involved, it's more difficult to discuss big topics if they're coming out of nowhere."If you haven't already, Russo says that this is a good time to see your partner in different contexts."It's insightful to see them with their friends or with their family, if you feel like that's appropriate on your timeline," she says. If you want him to wear the BF title, you may have to press for it. He may simply walk away and find another woman willing to be his FWB. Being a BF is just something they sometimes have to settle for. but we dont go "dutch" just one of us will end up paying for both. I dont wanna sabotage a good thing here, by lookin like im desperate or clingy anyone have some input on this? For men brought up in the hook-up culture, being a FWB is the ideal.
But if you're fairly young, you should keep in mind that many young men today are products of the so-called "hook-up culture." For them, being a BF is not the ideal.
Don't mean to negative nancy what you have, but if the guy wants to put a label on the relationship, he will.
HOWEVER:: we have not spoken of exclusivity or of having the official "bf" title. I don't wanna come across as needy like I NEED a title, but im getting tired of spinning my wheels in the dating scene. The is he affectionate advice kinda misses point of thread topic!

Get used to it because it's only becoming more common. I feel a little bad for people when they can't find happiness and security in a traditional relationship but that’s what the new world is bringing us.
