What is the advantage of not having a steady boyfriend?
it helps u figure out what u want in a future relationship
Good question. I dated during the 50s and it was classed as "going steady" and you usually got the guys class ring or his football ring. If you split-up you were to give the ring back. These days they don't do those things, so I would think if you are dating almost every weekend and doing things together off and on during the week it can be classed as having a boyfriend/girlfriend. If in doubt…
In any situation, a boyfriend could take advantage of you without you having a clue. Here are some examples: Using you to get closer to your sister/mom/best friend Using you to prove to friends that he CAN get a girlfriend Using you to get into your pants (I know it sounds weird, but it is possible) He doesn't want to go to a dance/prom/homecoming/activity without another arm He is using you as a rebound
