OMG UPDATE: Question? Answer.

QUESTION: I'm at the point in a relationship where I have to decide if we are officially dating, or if I should break it off.

I like the girl, and I'd feel really guilty if I broke it off. How do you decide if she's worth staying with?


  1. if you don't know, then you know.

  2. Do you guys have fun together? I mean, if you don't have anything to talk about or are bored when you hang out with her then ditch it... otherwise what's the harm?

  3. I'm a girl and I had this exact issue. In the past, I used to just break it off because I'm scared of commitment. This time, I decided to commit. As soon as I made that choice I started liking the guy so much more. I think fear of relationships often keeps us from really truly liking someone.

    Give it a shot. If it doesn't work out in an official relationship, you break up and move on.

  4. Picture your life without her in it, if you think you'll get over it soon, then you'll get over it soon.

  5. If you think she has marriage potential, then keep her. Else it's a waste of time

    1. Ask her about marriage values etc. If they're similar to yours then you're good to keep her around.

  6. I think you are thinking of this too black-and-white. You can always make this more official but then, if you don't like it later, break up. It's not like you're getting married or moving in together [I hope]. The only thing that is changing is your partner's expectations about how you feel. You really like her and are presumably not dating anyone else, all that's changing is a label. I know it's scary for some reason [i feel the same way early in a relationship] but you're not stuck if you later become unhappy.
