Is dating and a relationship the same thing

You've made a commitment to be faithful,to put energy in only that relationship.

My little sister took the stance that exclusivity and commitment were the same.

She theorized that once you've told someone you want to date them exclusively, you are committed to only them.

If you've been down this road before, you know that it's seldom successful.

You remain stuck in the "friend zone," which is relationship purgatory if you have a crush on someone.

Side note: I’m about to contradict the hell out of myself in this post so don’t judge me.

That statement lead to him explaining a lot about men and women that I can’t remember (brain stops functioning and tuning people out after a certain hour).

I was discussing my recent dating experience with my best friend which lead to a pretty good conversation. He explained how my conclusion to the situation was purely emotional, although I had a point.

After patiently listening to me, he commented that I love attention and that I’m emotional. Then he made this statement: I’m not even sure how we got this far at 2am but it was a good one.

Trying to “make it serious” is a universal thing, something both guys and girls do when they find a person they like and, although I am all for being honest with your feelings I don’t think that should give you or him the excuse to start pushing it.

The other day my sister and her husband (Jake) and I werediscussing "exclusive" versus "committed."Of course, we guys had a different opinion than my sister.

But what I could recall lead me to ask these questions: Ok. Well, I took my questions to the Twitter streets this morning and boy did I get feedback.
