What's the longest amount of time you've ever been with someone before deciding to make your relationship official? For the purposes of this question, "official" will be classified as the point at which you decided to make a (non-matrimonial) commitment to the other person.
Typical examples include:
- Telling friends, family acquaintances you're with someone
- "Going public"
You get the idea. Basically anything past the "getting to know them through casual dating" phase.
Note: "Official" as in whatever that means to you, telling your family, using formal titles, etc.

We were dating for a long while but she had problems around putting a label on us. She never once referred to me as her boyfriend which in all honesty was a little bit of a downer. Made it feel as though it was an obstacle in our relationship; making something out of nothing.
I've dated several girls who treated me like a boyfriend, expected to be treated as a girlfriend, but refused to acknowledge the facts to ether themselves or to others. Admittedly I've done the same thing in the past.
Sometimes it's just easier not defining something that just is... and sometimes it's not...0
