Dating for months
The amount of love found within them is enough to withhold forever.
Before I met you, I didn’t realize how scared I was to try things, so thank you for giving me the courage to live life more “on the edge”.
Now, there's hooking up, friends with benefits, casual dating, and all manner of other things.
Yet none of these are "dating." There's no courtship, there's zero determining if you're compatible romantically or long-term. So let's call dating what it really is: a way to get to know a complete stranger to see if they're a possible romantic partner for the long haul.
I’ll never forget our first date when you took me Starbucks and bought my favorite drink, and when I asked you if you wanted anything you said “never”.
Now, you ask ME to get a Pumpkin Spice Latte (sorry your secret is out), and I LOVE it. Because as much as I’m stubborn and want things a certain away, you’re the same way.
You're just bumping the naughty bits, and that's why we North Americans have so many, varied terms for what is essentially a no strings attached sexual relationship. It isn't an excuse to "test the merchandise," or "see how I feel in six months.".
