Are we dating or boyfriend girlfriend
I suggest you read the book He’s not your boyfriend. You even have a dedicated drawer at his apartment because you crash there so much. It may not be as bad as a DTM (dead to me) status, in which the relationship just never happened.
You genuinely love each other and say so on the reg. It was, however, bad enough that you don’t want to cloud your ex-BF history with this stupid, now meaningless, relationship and so you relegate this ex to non-BFdom so the people of the world understand that you just DGAF (don’t give a f*ck) about it.
And even though my friends and the media, including Ryan Seacrest, have referred to him as my boyfriend. But what type of Non-BF they are can vary in a wide spectrum.
Since I was introduced to the term by an old roommate, I’ve called every guy I’ve dated for more than a few dates, my “Non Boyfriend” (Non-BF), partially because I just didn’t know whether it would be ok for me to call them my boyfriend, and also because I am a commitment-phobe and never know whether or not I actually WANT to call someone my boyfriend, even if they are. Because of this, in your dating life span you can have very few BFs and many Non-BFs (helping you keep your “BF number down” much like the recyclables in the “sea” help keep your “sxy number” down).
In this case, your friends know him — he’s met them at late-night parties and after-hours and they expect to see him at your side when you are at these things.
They love him, he’s funny — This Non-BF type is referring to being in a polyamorous relationship, in which the person who you are dating primarily is your primary. We may as well put him on this list though, because you know yourself you do all of the things that couples do with this person, and it wouldn’t be fair not to acknowledge that.
You don’t have to let the world know what type of Non-BF your current Non-BF is.
But don't assume anything unless you have both agreed to it. Scott Thompson has been writing professionally since 1990, beginning with the "Pequawket Valley News." He is the author of nine published books on topics such as history, martial arts, poetry and fantasy fiction.
You are now in a limbo where you aren’t his girlfriend but agreed to exclusivity and have changed YOUR dating behavior extremely. But essentially, in this case, this boy is your Non-BF. This can be fun and amazing, but tricky and dangerous, too.
This will prove to be very inconvenient and annoying when he lives his life normally, and you have to curb yours by not going on dates with other people — even though he’s not giving you the attention you should probably be getting from the people you would be going on dates with (who you can’t go on dates with because you agreed not to see other people). If either of you break the no feelings rule, you can’t go back.
I’m throwing this one in here because it still fits in the non-exclusive Non-BF terms. are also your boyfriends, so it gets a little tricky. Plus: 18 Guys You Should Never Date You dated this guy sort of seriously. You may have even called him your boyfriend at some point.
I’m not going to go into this one, because there’s a whole culture that I personally don’t know enough about to be able to speak to this matter. You drink together, dance together, go to dinner together. The relationship ended and he is now your ex, but it actually ended so badly that you don’t even want to acknowledge the fact that you dated him that seriously in the first place.
