The 7 day dating and relationship
For about a year, I felt pretty lonely and blue about being single, especially when all my closest friends were in serious relationships. I think part of the problem was that I was also unhappy in other areas of my life, and making concrete changes there really helped lift my mood: I switched jobs, expanded my friend group, and moved to a new neighborhood.
As a result, I felt so much happier and more confident in what I was bringing to the table as a potential partner.
Neither one of us were prepared or expected to fall in love with each other. Dating casually while looking for something serious requires so much patience.
The feelings were so intense that we had to break away from one another to sort things out. I think you have to let things naturally grow, and then ask the question when you feel like it's the right time.
Have transparent conversations about what you're each doing. A good person will be open to having these conversations.
It hit me that there was only a finite amount of time in which I'd be single, so why not enjoy it?
I had a blast going out on tons of dates over the next three weeks... We've been together for a year and a half now and are about to move in together!
After the initial meeting, the male waits three business days to call the female, because he doesn’t want to look too eager.
The female is aware of this rule, and she is annoyed but deals with it anyways and anxiously awaits his call.
