I have been dating my girlfriend for about a month and a half. I really like her but the jury is out on whether she is “the one”
The other day she changed her status on facebook to “in a relationship” I was a little surprised because I would have thought before she did something like that…she would have talked to me about it first. Now she wants me to change my relationship status too. I am not ready to do that. This relationship is still new.
What should I tell her so she doesn’t get offended. I want to continue this relationship to see where it could go…but she’s going a little too fast for my comfort level.
Thanks for your insight.

I think honesty is the best thing. When she asks you again to change your status to “in a relationship” just say “I will happily change my status when I’m ready and when I do…you’ll know I really mean it” and leave it at that. If and when you change it…she’ll know that it was what you really wanted to do and it wasn’t because she “guilted” you into it.
I hope it all works out!
