If you've dated recently, it probably went something like this: You swiped on a stranger's cute-if-pixelated face, asked them something original like, "How's your week? When you didn't get murdered, you went on more romantic dates and humped like bunnies, until suddenly your date's texting tone changed from that of your effusive Aunt Betty to that of John, your Uber driver.
Uh oh. Time to find out: Do they want a relationship or not? Just matching the maturity level of my response to that of your excuse. People who "don't want a relationship" should actually say, "I don't want a relationship with you," because that's the truth.
Humans with hearts always want to fall in love. Love feels good. Dopamine's a drug. It's science. Blah, blah, blah.
Sure, there are exceptions to the rule, but if someone wants to be with you, they are going to make god damn clear. If you are in that, "Did I fart in my sleep or something because why did you just go from telling me how much you liked me to diet ghosting me? I spoke to relationship expert and founder of Spoon meet Spoon Meredith Golden about how to tell if someone wants a hookup or a relationship.
Here's what she had to say:. Cool, I get that. Late night meet-ups, sexy texts, never sitting down to dinner together On the other hand: "If you spend time having sex, but also enjoy various other activities together, you could be on the relationship track," says Golden.
I have spent months and months "dating" New York men who took me to romantic dinners and concerts and drinks and never took things to the next level. Or maybe I'm just the worst at about three months Great new TV shows, life goals, and Totino's pizza rolls?
Eh, could be pillow talk post-NFL game that was heavily peppered with Totino's spots, or could be s of the ultimate compatibility.
Who really knows? However, if you are only talking with your "datee" about sexy stuff, you're just hooking up. OK, that last part was in my words. Think about what you talk about, and how often you talk and even text about things other than sex. Is it only inside your respective apartments? Then they might just be looking for a hookup, says Golden.
Not bringing you around in public isn't the greatest of that someone is looking to call you their girlfriend down the road. Have you spent time with your "datee"'s friends? These are all indications of how they are looking at your situation. Even those who 'KNOW' what they want can change their minds. That said, if you want a relationship and you're pretty sure this person you have mostly hung out with naked in a bed wants nothing beyond that, be honest or get out.
There's no use wasting your time pretending you are "chill" with a non relationship status that will quite literally torture you the longer you act "cool" with the hookup. I asked Golden if a person should just ask, "What are we? I would disagree a little bit: If you are driving yourself crazy and Googling articles about what the eff you and this "datee" could possibly be, take control of your life like a boss woman and ask.
The right person won't be turned off by this command you have over your own relationships. If it's a big fat "hookup only" then at least you know and can move along. If bringing it up finally gets them to commit, well, you just pulled off what is basically magic in millennial dating. And take care of your heart, no matter what you do. By Annie Foskett.
