‘How Do I Turn My Summer Fling Into An Even More Permanent Thing?’

All your valuable relationship concerns replied — right here, at this time.

Dear Lindsay,

A guy was met by me come early july, and things are going really great. We have been casually dating for the past 8 weeks, and although we have not mentioned being exclusive, we fork out a lot of the time together, and so I don’t believe he is dating someone else. Even when he were, that’d be okay since we have never talked about any of it. But listed here is my problem, let me keep seeing him and turn much more serious this autumn like him and don’t want to date anyone else, especially since it’s so much harder to go out on dates in the colder months vs. being in a relationship because I really. I do not understand as a summer fling, so I’m basically wondering — how do I let him know that I want to take our relationship to the next level whether he wants to continue dating or just sees me?

These last few weeks, we can already feel a slight chill in the air as summer draws to a close. You got that right, winter — and cuffing season — is coming. (ICYMI, “cuffing season” is enough time of the year if it is too chilly to complete anything but Netflix and chill.) When you’ve found a sizzling summer fling you need to develop into a far more permanent thing, now’s enough time to lay straight down some groundwork.

Fortunately, you have got technology in your corner. a current research posted when you look at the Journal of Experimental Psychology: General discovered that short- and long-lasting relationships look almost exactly the same during the early phases. So don’t allow anyone inform you that a summer fling can not develop into the real thing because it completely can — and here is just how to it.Read More
