Am I His Girlfriend Or Friend?

You have probably been hanging out with a guy for a little while, or even been on a few dates? You might of even kissed a couple of times and maybe he even held hands? So if he hasn't said anything to you about being his girlfriend, then you are going to be thinking "Am I his girlfriend or friend?". There are a few factors which you will need to consider, so I'm going to share with you what I have learned from other relationship experts, as well as personal experience regarding this matter.

So you must be spending a fair amount of time together and you must enjoy being with him. But the first aspect I think of in regard to this question is, how long have you been spending time together? How long have you been friends? Also how old you both are will also be a contributing factor.

If you are spending a lot of time together and he calls you nearly everyday, but hasn't tried to kiss you or ask you to be his girlfriend, then he thinks of you as a great friend. The younger the guy, the less likely he is to be mature enough to ask you to be his girlfriend as they just want to have fun and explore their sexuality with women. But if he is in his late 20s or older, then he is usually mature enough to ask you to be his girlfriend so that he will know you will be exclusive.

If you have both gone so far as to have had sex together, but you are still wondering am I his girlfriend or friend? Then you might just be his booty call. If a man is really interested in you to want you to be his girlfriend, then his actions towards you will be clear. His actions will match his words as he will tell you how he feels about you and his friends and family will even know about you.

If you think of every successful relationship or even long term relationships, the girl never wondered if he was into her, if she was his girlfriend or when he was going to call. He felt the chemistry, he felt the bond between you both and he really liked you as a person. So he would chase you, call and email you everyday or nearly everyday, ask when he can see you again, ask you to meet his friends, meet his family, or take a weekend trip. You never had to wonder if he was into you, because you knew he was from his words and actions.

To look at the overall reason as to whether you are really his girlfriend or not can be as simple as asking him. The only backfire could be that you will lose his friendship, because if he's not interested in you like that, it will be hard for both of you to maintain just friendship. He will think that's he's hurting you by not becoming your boyfriend, and you will be hurt by being with him and never being able to touch him and kiss him like you want to. So can you handle just being friends? Or would it be more beneficial for you to move on once you know whether he likes you like that or not? Only you will know which decision is best.
