At what point should you ask about relationship status? watch

    I've been seeing a new guy for a few weeks - we are sleeping together, but also dating (we've been for a meal, for coffee, out in town etc.) I'm not after a serious relationship, but I'm also sort of curious as to what our status is? Dating, f**k buddies, potential boyfriend and girlfriend? I don't want to scare him off too soon by asking, but when is the best time to clarify? A month? Six weeks? Several months on?

    Sounds very hard to tell what is going on.

    He could be just waiting for the time to ask for it to be something more, or he might not be prepared to take it further.

    I think you should ask him something like 'how far do you want to take this' sometime soon - maybe 1-2 months in? A few weeks does seem too soon, but if you're not after a serious relationship then you wouldn't want him to get the wrong idea.

    I had always thought if two people are dating and they decide to have sex, then that meant they were boyfriend and girlfriend. Lol. I'm so ignorant about this kind of thing.

    Well, for me a boyfriend/girlfriend implies a more serious relationship and usually exclusivity. I'm not seeing anyone else and I don't think he is - he spent some of his Birthday with me and we keep spending weekends together. But it's still difficult to know where he stands - all I know is he doesn't seem like a player and appears to be a genuinely nice guy, but that's all I know really.

    Lol, I'd just ask him if he considers me his girlfriend or something.
