How long dating before boyfriend

If you are seriously dating someone, how long should it be before you pop the question?

How much time does it take to determine if he or she is “the one”? I know of people who have gotten married very quickly (like in a matter of days) and are still married decades later—and people who did the same thing and were divorced just as quickly.

What's the difference between "just dating" and "boyfriend/girlfriend"?

Yes, I know "just dating" is non-commital, but--How do you know if you've "secured" the title?

Anyway, there's been some awkwardness about what we are exactly.

I mean I sort of said that I don't want to rush things I mean it's been 3 weeks or so, I just want to see where it goes. Hey thanks for the advice, btw I am 18 and it's just I haven't been in a relationship since I was 16 or so, just wondering how the game is played when you're a bit older is all! If you and he have already decided to see ONLY each other, then the labels are appropriate.

Some of the four-year-olds were able to control their impulse to snatch up and consume their marshmallows for the duration of Mischel’s 15–20-minute errand (which must have felt like several lifetimes for these four-year-olds). Mischel followed up with his subjects many years later and found that the ability to control impulses and delay gratification was associated with success in many different areas of life as an adult.

Finally, there's the best option of all: You live happily ever after.

While no one can predict the outcome of moving in together, a few real couples share their experiences, for better or for worse."My ex and I moved in together after just three months.

Some of you are going to say that it's not about the titles, but well...

When I give talks on how to make wise decisions about love relationships, the burning question that someone almost always asks is, “How long do I have to wait?

So, how long do you 'see' someone before you are actually "boyfriend and girlfriend"? Ultimately, the labels just fall into place as they will.
