Are we dating or in a relationship
Sure, commitment means exclusive dating, but it also means a potential future.
Unless you two have had some sort of a conversation, Like we mentioned, commitment is the key to having a serious relationship versus dating.Relationships bring comfort and open communication—hopefully! Relationships are great because it is really special to have someone to spend all of your time with. It is normal for one person to be more into the situation than the other person, but overall, no one is expecting a diamond ring or a mortgage.While in a relationship however, expectations tend to run high.There is no need to go out and see that movie that you don’t want to see in a relationship, though there may be while dating.There is no need to go out every night to fancy restaurants or dinner parties in a relationship.While in a relationship, you have both already committed to one another, which means the clarity should come easier.
With more clarity comes less stress—at least in this area!

While in a relationship, hopefully both people feel comfortable discussing their relationship openly.
While just dating, it is hard to sit down and discuss anything in full because of the fear of what the other person is thinking.
It is important to have a nice balance of both and though I am sure it is possible for couples who are just “dating,” it is definitely more possible for couples who are in a relationship. Relationships are familiar and comfortable and peaceful and nice.
