Back in the 1950s, a man staked a claim on a woman and they were then "going steady." A woman knew what was going on, and her relationship was recognized as official. But people have told me flatly to get over it... that no one ASKS a woman to be his girlfriend anymore... that such things took place "in the olden days."

Isn't that confusing though? I mean...a woman thinks that if you hang out more than 3 times, she's dating you and is your girlfriend. A guy may not be on that page and will often end up saying to a brokenhearted woman: "umm, no you ain't -- we are not a couple!" At what point is exclusivity discussed and expected? When is it appropriate to "stake a claim" on someone and make your relationship an official boyfriend/girlfriend situation? Call into 347-327-9215.
