Danielle: Hi Damon, I’ve been seeing a great guy for several months now. He treats me well, we spend a lot of time together, and we’ve both admitted that neither of us is seeing other people. Even though we don’t officially have titles, I think of him as my boyfriend/man. Based on his consistent words and actions, I think he sees me as his girlfriend/lady, but we have not talked about that specifically. Should I initiate a discussion to confirm this or just let it continue as is and not worry about titles?
DY: As much as we like to pretend that they don’t, titles do matter — “ambiguity” and “good relationship” aren’t terms that belong together — so you should definitely initiate that conversation
