There’s also the underlying message: love is there.
Now, if the person makes it obvious you’re not even close, and will never meet their friends, it’s never going to get serious. Casual daters don’t usually find themselves sighing on a bench, in a garden, fantasizing about a long, lasting future with someone.

The reason you’re reading this article is either because your partner forgot about the conversation, or you’re having a terrible time.
#2 Monogamous—you’re just sleeping with each other. Say you haven’t had the “official” conversation yet, but you’ve established that you’re not sleeping with other people.
