7. LOVE IS PLAIN AND SIMPLE.
We tend to make it super complicated when it really doesn’t need to be. When you love someone, you want to be with them. You’re trustworthy and you make effort in the relationship. Period. That’s not what’s going on in your almost relationship.
8. LABELS MATTER.
You might tell your friends that the guy’s so amazing and treats you like the most beautiful woman in the world. That’s great and all, but sooner or later they’re going to ask, “So is he, like, your boyfriend?” Look, if he was really into you, he’d be putting a girlfriend label on you. Shouldn’t he have done so by now?
9. YOUR STRONG FEELINGS DON’T MAKE THIS REAL.
You might think that since you’ve caught a serious case of the feels for this guy, that’s a good enough reason to stay with him and wait for him to make things official. But ask yourself: are his actions a sign that he’s reciprocating your feelings? Probably not, otherwise you’d be in a real relationship.
