The whole purpose of spending time together is for mutual enjoyment. You start talking about life goals, your ideas of marriage, if you want to have children and how many, your career plans, your spiritual beliefs, your family background.
Dating for Fun Goal: Enjoyment This type of dating is the no-strings-attached type of dating. That purpose is for you and her to get to know each other, to see if you both want to move into a more serious relationship.
(Friends and family, if you could use these categories to identify your dating life then I will not have to ask awkward follow-up questions). If she doesn’t reply to your text, you don’t get upset. Sure, you can have fun, but the relationship has another purpose as well.
So for my own sake (and the sake of other nosy people like myself), I’ve developed 4 categories of dating to help clarify things and lessen the confusion surrounding dating. Dating to See Goal: Knowledge This type of dating is more intentional.
You’re not trying to scope out the other person to see if they are marriage material. And friends spend time with each other to have fun.
