Cupid’s Advice:

“DTR,” also known as “defining the relationship,” is an important step in any coupling. Whether you’re trying to start something serious or just enjoy a fling, there has to be a conversation about what you both are to each other so you’re both on the same page. Cupid is here to help you with labeling your relationship:

1. Determine wants: Before you decide to have this specific talk with your partner, you need to figure out what exactly you want out of this relationship. Do you want monogamy? Or do you want your relationship to be casual, with the ability to see other people? Figure out what you want before you go asking your partner to change the status of your relationship.

2. Compatibility: Of course wanting to be with someone isn’t enough, you also need to make sure your partner is compatible to your lifestyle. Take into account whether you both have similar likes and dislikes, hobbies or upbringing. For a lasting relationship you need to find common elements that bond you together, if you can’t find those, maybe you should just enjoy time with each other the way it currently is.

3. Ask questions: And last but not least, you need to ask questions! Your partner should have equal input on how or what the relationship will be labeled. How else do you expect to find out whether or not a relationship is worth pursuing if you have no input from your partner? Depending on the questions you ask and the responses you get, you’ll finally know for sure if you should pursue things further or run for the hills.
