I've been dating a woman for about 7 months now. We spend a lot of time together and get along great. The problem is she won't let me call her my girlfriend and she introduces me to people as her "friend". I trust that she is not seeing anyone else but she says she doesn't want to put a label on what we have. In my mind, I dont see what the problem is... I dont expect anything about our relationship to change or become more serious just yet... I simply want people to know we are together. When we go out she gets hit on all of the time because other guys basically see her as available. Why won't she make us official? Am I making too big of a deal out of it? This is frustrating. I have respected her decision and haven't pushed the issue further, but it still secretly bothers me a lot. Am I wasting time here?

Honestly? She probably doesn't want other guys to stop hitting on her. She WANTS to be viewed as available, even if she's not acting on it. Something about cutting off all her options and publicly announcing she's with you is bothering her. I don't see this as something that's going to last.1
