I have been in a long distance relationship for nearly six months, and we are both virgins.
We see each other about every three weeks (more or less), but in December it will be six months officially.
During 35 years of counseling thousands of married couples, Dr.
Warren is a clinical psychologist and author of eight books on love, marriage and emotional health.
For instance, he hasn't said the L word yet (and I'm confused, because from time to time, I do get the vibe that he does love me from the way he looks at me and the way he takes cares of me). I asked him while we were on vacation around 3 month into our relationship if he loved me, he said he thought so.
Then I asked why he hasn't said the L word yet, he said he isn't ready and that saying the L word is a huge deal for him.
I may not even have thought of this as a problem if (hypothetically) we live together.
But when I'm alone, I think about us often and focus on the big picture, and rather unfortunately, I realized that some crucial elements from this relationship are missing.
Don't get me wrong I do love him, I just want to know what guys expect month by month and what six months really stands for.For some people, it may take a couple of meetings to determine if they want to date a particular person.What is needed here is to come across as someone who is interesting and fun to be with.It is normal and common for partners to be in different stages.When this occurs, requires patience and understanding are necessary.
