Dating vs boyfriend and girlfriend

As date number eight looks to be on the horizon, (I am secretly skipping on the inside that there is even a possible date 8).I still feel like half the time I don’t know what to do, and I’m thinking, where this is all going?

About to give up, thinking that the world of spinsterhood was my only option, I got a message in my inbox from Andy. Andy’s photo showed him to have the friendliest smile I had ever seen.You know you’re bad when someone else ends up just taking over. I didn’t add enough water to the pasta; I forgot to turn the hob on when trying to make the sauce, and then after I turned it on, I nearly caused a small fire when I put the tea towel on the hob.Even worse, I stayed quiet when Andy raided my fridge and found some nearly out-of-date rocket.As you can imagine, it wasn’t the most impressive thing I’ve done.As I got off the train and looked back at Andy, he put his thumbs up.As we hit date six, Andy met my friends and survived their interrogation tactics as they tag teamed each other in the search for information.

None of my friends had ever done the Internet dating scene, so they were curious to find out how ‘normal’ Andy was, without letting on that they knew we had met online. They were impressed that he had agreed to meet them so early on in to our ‘dating / seeing each other’ journey.

Fast forward three years and I am now at the start of a new relationship. The rulebook has changed, and the lingo is different from the last time I went down this path. Some say that my current beau (we are on date 7) and I are ‘seeing each other’. Personally I’m stuck in limbo trying to work out how not to screw this up, and what the hell the difference is. I got a few messages from men, and then some dates followed.

When, in fact, do you become boyfriend and girlfriend? There was Rodger, who turned out to be 45, not the 37 he had promoted himself to be; Chris, the pilot, who rather cheesily offered to ‘show me the world’; and then there was Liam, the Probation Officer who lied about his height (he was closer to 5ft than 6ft).

Thinking Macaroni and Cheese was a safe bet (after all, what should you cook on a date?

), I got busy in the kitchen with Andy chatting away about his day.

On date number three, I invited Andy over to mine for dinner.
