I want to be exclusive when dating someone and adding intercourse to the mix, and I would prefer that she does the same........does not necessarily make us the dreaded girlfriend/boyfriend thing, it just means that we are enjoying each other to the point of having sex and that we care enough for each other and ourselves to do that exclusively.
To place labels on things like this just is a turn off to me.
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...
All that that set of labels has to do with, is to identify someone simultaneously by their sex, and by the general kind of relationship that you have with them.
If you are spending time and energy with them, but have no interest in them being any sort of a mate, then they are just called "friend." In fact, I suggested to my sons, that they could help ME avoid confusion when they talk about their female acquaintances, if they would use "girlfriend" to indicate romantic interest of some sort, and use "friendgirl" to indicate that the gal is literally just a friend. since many people do have more than one boyfriend or girlfriend, the term "dating exclusively" means something entirely different.Boyfriend/Girlfriend I think it when you know there is more there than just dating.You know there is some sort of relationship forming and there are true feelings and emotions involved. If there is romantic interest along with sexual chemistry than that is what you call a boyfriend/girlfriend.If anything, people begin as acquaintances, move to "dating," with "bf/gf" labels being applied after they have established that they no longer have to show ID before asking each other out.When they then move on to "getting serious," and want to establish exclusivity, then they add that separate label, almost like a Scout Achievement badge, to any existing labels they've already applied.Do you want the other person to have sex with other people while they have sex with you?
