It's easy to consider yourself "dating" when you meet on a dating app, or if the guy asks out right if he can take you out to dinner, but I'm in muddy waters here.
We were best friends who developed feelings for each other... And just kissed one night. After that night he initiated a conversation where we talked about how we felt and where we saw it going. He told me that night he was apprehensive because I have dated one of his close friends and 'bro code' or whatever. We decided that what he doesn't know won't hurt him... And we would just let things happen and see where it leads.
Since that night we have seen each other 2 or 3 times a week and cuddle and kiss and get food and just hold hands and talk. He seems to truly care and as much as I know he wants to sleep with me, he doesn't push for it and keeps waiting for a time when it won't be rushed. Everything's great, I just wonder how long I should wait until I can expect things to be public or official?

Woman, if you are following some norms established by "society" in this regard, you are doing it wrong. If everything is so great, then sooner or later you are required to take the leap of faith. You don't just "become official" or whatnot. I get the feeling you are trying to lean on some imaginary support safety net to avoid some bad things that might happen. Pessimistic tendencies, nobody here will be able to convince you otherwise, you already have made your mind up about this.0

if and when you feel comfortable enough to have sex would be a good time to discuss with him your labels, where you see it going, expectations, etc.0
