I just don't get it. If your seeing someone, in the Big Apple, for more then a month your still... dating.
I have the feeling that New Yorkers are afraid to use the word relationship.
I don't know any other city with so many singles, all walking around and searching for the perfect lover!
Dating in New York is also much more difficult, exhausting, and time-consuming than dating in Ames.
In Belgium it's just so much easier:
You go on a date, go for dinner. Meet again for another date... then maybe kiss and after you've slept together and still seeing each other for more then 2 weeks your a couple. Just as simple as that. But in NYC that's a NO-NO. Why always the hustle?
Are people afraid to use the word lover? Boyfriend? Girlfriend?
Or are they just afraid to start a serious relationship with someone?
I think everything started with Sex And The City. When Carrie and her girlfriends started the show everybody was in LOVE with them and they were always talking about dating and having sex and blablabla... And for the these girls it was oh-so difficult to find the perfect boyfriend.
I think that many people still think the way they did/do in NYC.
Anyway... what I wanna say is that it just freaks me out that when your seeing someone for more then 2 or 3 weeks you're still not sure if the person your sleeping with is your Boyfriend or Girlfriend or just another date your dating in that big city full of singles.
