Dating for 3 months without touching
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
I been dating for three months but we havent hold hands or hug wish he did but i dont know what to do
It sounds like you dove into dating without building up the friendship first. One of the things friends do is hug each other hello and goodbye, to build up that 'contact comfort level.' It sounds like you have to work on that friendship aspect of your relationship.
So when you see him the next time, give him a friendly hug hello. It's what many friends do, this isn't something obscure or unusual. When you say goodbye, give him a hug goodbye. It's how people who care about each other wish each other well.
A relationship involves both people actively working on it, and talking to each other about what they are looking for. So don't make your boyfriend just 'guess' or 'mindread'. That's very cruel. Sit down with him and talk to him about what would make you happy! I'm sure he wants to make you happy, and something like hand-holding is free and fun! If you can't even talk to him about something simple like "I would enjoy it if you held my hand," how could you talk about any more serious things that come up in your lives? It's time to get in practice about talking now, when things are easy.
