I've been dating this guy for 5 months or so now. We are exclusive and getting more and more serious. We haven't officially labeled the title to the public but all of our close friends/family know we are an item.
Yesterday, he called me and said he had something to talk about which made me nervous. He asked me if I would be ok with him flying to New York for the 4th of July to visit a buddy. (we live in the midwest) I told him that he could do whatever he wanted and that a trip like that would be fun. He would leave on Friday morning and be back Sunday. I obviously said I would be bummed not spending the holiday weekend with him but you can't pass up a trip to New York. I told him that I was totally cool with whatever he decided it.
In the past guys that I have dated will just do their own thing without even consulting me. So why did he ask for permission basically? Was this a test to see how I would react? I take it this is a good sign and he respects me and my feelings.
Most Helpful Girl
I feel, that in this stage of your relationship, he Respected you enough, Thought of you enough to Ask 'if it would be ok' so he could get your input, and know he could Go with a clear mind and body that you would be----OK with it.
Very considerate, very loyal. He sounds like a keeper, and guys like this don't come along every day. Although you may be disappointed, just know, that there are plenty More July fourths in which you both can enjoy once you finally become----Official.
I don't know if he so much thought it a 'Test,' but in my book You have Passed My Test... Good work, sweetie.
Good luck. xx1
