Our relationship is starting to suffer now because even though I say I’m fine with how things are, deep down this is really bothering me and I feel really hurt by the fact that even though I am his ‘girlfriend,’ he won’t acknowledge me in that way.

Can you please shed some light on what’s going on here?

“I’ve been seeing this guy for almost 6 months now.

There are some things you can do (mostly by just shifting your perspective) that can help tremendously. For starters, I have seen a lot of women get caught up on this issue and as a result, they bring it up more and more, smothering every ounce of joy from the relationship.

At that point the relationship stops being fun and full of happiness and starts becoming more like a battle of wills.

My recommendation is to avoid badgering him about the topic.

Bringing it up once is enough, So what makes a guy want to call you his girlfriend?

One is staying in a relationship you are not happy in and haven’t been happy in for a while, but you’re staying in it because of the “potential of what it could be.” Frankly, if you don’t like it the way it is, it probably will not change unless he is motivated to change it.

If you want to know exactly how to attract women, look no further. I mean do guys know what goes on inside a girl’s head? So what better way to learn how to attract women than to ask the women themselves?

Although some factors (genetic makeup and wealth) are somewhat out of our control, there are many small changes you can make to appear like a man of status.

Keep fit, hit the gym, eat healthy, and taking pride in what you wear.

And from a guy’s perspective, when a relationship gets like this, it becomes much less likely for a guy to want to stay.
