For purposes of his anonymity, I am going to call just call him "Son." My friend said, "Son, you're 18 years old, so I am going to tell you how you date.
Since you are 18 years old, you are allowed to date a woman half your age plus seven." Son looked at him and said, "Alright, Dad.
You can date someone as young as half your age plus seven years? It's no wonder that so many women feel that men their own age are too immature.
It's because of this urban legend that has gone around forever.
Maybe he likes you, but he doesn’t want to feel “tied down” by a relationship.
Maybe he likes you a lot, but he knows that he’s not in a position where he can fully commit to you because he has a lot on his plate to deal with and will continue to for the foreseeable future. Regardless of the reason, it’s nobody’s job to play psychiatrist or detective.
The only problem is he won’t call me his girlfriend.
Can you please shed some light on what’s going on here?To a guy, calling a woman his girlfriend is typically a huge pain in the ass and if the woman is making herself so available and so committed when he hasn’t committed to anything, why would he call her his girlfriend?If a store was giving you free stuff, would you say ‘no please, let me pay you for it’? Now, with that said, that does not necessarily mean that there’s no chance of you becoming his girlfriend.“I’ve been seeing this guy for almost 6 months now.Everything is pretty much perfect- we love spending time together, he really cares about me, we spend almost every night together, and we’re pretty much a ‘couple’ in the conventional sense.”If a guy won’t call you his girlfriend after a month (two months tops), then I would say it means that he’s enjoying the relationship exactly where it is and at this moment will not take it any further unless he is inspired to.
