Not officially dating

It's a confusing time in dating, where social media and technology (texts and Facebook messages) have overtaken good old-fashioned courting and wooing someone over.

Now, all your date has to do is show up on time, as promised, and he or she wins points (versus making a dinner reservation or actually coming up with a plan for a date). That’s right, now you find yourself with this person a LOT, like 24/7.

You've told each other enough about your lives that you can name his crazy aunt, favorite uncle, and his childhood best friend. So maybe you’ve been too lazy to maintain down there or shave your legs. You both used to expect that every makeout session would lead to sex, and every sleepover would lead to sex…and every hug would probably also lead to sex. If this new guy has you so head-over-heels that you’ve forgotten what’s-his-name, then you’re definitely ready for that next step.

And let's be real, his body is no waxed wonderland every single day either. But now that you know you guys have awesome sex on the regular, there's no longer the pressure to get naked every single time you're in bed together.

You've been dating that special someone for awhile now and established that you aren't seeing other people.

You're calling each other pet names like "babe" and "honey," seeing each other every weekend, but you haven't exclusively given yourselves label yet.

No one’s talking about flying home together for the holidays or taking a road trip to some wedding. Now that Bendall is officially over *wipes tear*, let’s reminisce and take a look back at their relationship.Allow me to paint a picture for you and then explain why I think that picture is absolutely ridiculous. For the sake of this example let’s say they see each other 3-4 times and week, sleep together 2-3 of the 3-4 and talk every other day. At the three month mark one of the two parties is itching for some definition. It’s been three months of gradual dating leading to the obvious question of, where is this gradual dating going. The Kardashian family has been going through some major relationship drama recently (hi, Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson), but Kendall Jenner seemed to just be chillin’ and enjoying life with her basketball player BF, Ben Simmons...until now.Kendall and Ben got together in summer 2018, and they dated for almost a year before calling it quits.
