I want to become official with my partner

August 10, 2014

I’ve been dating this guy for 2 months now and things are going well but every time I bring up the subject of finally becoming “official”, he would change topics or look so uncomfortable that I just end up saying nevermind. I’m getting really frustrated now but I don’t know what say without sounding desperate/needy. How should I approach him about this?

Aw, honey. You are not going to sound “desperate/needy,” since after all, you have a right to know what is going on between the two of you (you do make up the other half of the relationship.) You should find out if you two are on the same page about being in a relationship or not, because it doesn’t sound like he is ready. Hope this helps. Best of luck, darling. –Jami

It is possible that this guy just got out of a long term relationship and isn’t looking for anything serious. Because it is going so well, I think you should be patient for just a bit more! Some guys also shy away from the “label” of being official, so bear that in mind! –Emily
