About me:
Our reader is crazy about her guy but not sure where they stand despite nearly a year of dating. Let's help her out. But nearly all women on the survey said it did. Holding a woman's hand subconsciously communicates that your relationship is in a good spot and that you're feeling connected to her. So reach for her hand while you're crossing the parking lot—and say a lot without saying a word. I've been seeing this guy for about nine months. Recently it was his birthday, and I met and had dinner with his friends, plus we had a dinner, just the two of us, on the day of his birthday.

My boyfriend and I've been together for nine months, and we've not had sex. We've done some things but no intercourse. I've asked him dating for 9 months no relationship it and he says he generally waits awhile before having sex. I have had mixed feelings about this. I feel confident about our relationship, I know he truly loves and wants to be with me but I feel like nine months is a little long to wait, like he doesn't want me sexually.

When it comes to dating, we women think we are pretty good at telling which "signs" are pointing to a future relationship. After dating someone for a while, we begin to think we have an understanding of what actions are those of a potential boyfriend, and which actions are those of a potential heartbreaker. For example, I know that I, and a few of my girlfriends, have been in the position of dating a guy for a few months, with no talk of being exclusive. But even when there's no talk of exclusivity, or in some cases, an explicit declaration from them about not wanting to be exclusive, we still chat with our friends over lunch about all the "signs" we got from them on our latest date. Before I was married, I experienced a lot of these signs from many unattainable men. Men that made me think if I just stuck it out, they would end up becoming my boyfriend.
