How long did you date before being official?
According to a relationship expert, its socially acceptable to broach the subject after two months. But some people will get to the stage earlier — it all depends how much time youre spending together, and how much of a good fit you are. If youre not sure, try introducing them to your friends and see how they react.
What is considered dating for a long time?
Someone who has only dated around and hasnt been in a committed relationship before may absolutely consider seven months to be a long-term relationship. Someone who has had multiple relationships that tended to last over a year at the minimum may not consider seven months to be a long term relationship.
