10. Defining the Relationship (DTR)
Defining the relationship is tricky because it is all about timing. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to know where you stand with somebody, but the proper amount of time spent together must pass. Asking the classic “what are we?” after date number two or three is a little intense and can easily make your prospect flee. DTR helps to create boundaries and expectations within a couple. It allows them to be on the same page, especially when it comes to seeing other people.
Modern day relationships are filled with ambiguity, and one person usually becomes more committed than the other in the early stages. Take the time to get to know each other, see how compatible you are together. Are you eager to know the status because you just want to be in a relationship, or do you genuinely like this person. You can come across as needy and desperate when demanding to know what this is so early on in the game. Don’t stay in limbo forever not knowing but gage your timing and if the person is really into you, they will not head for the hills because their mind is where yours is.
