    Maybe if you start calling him your BF, he will follow suit.

I guess we’re in one of those situations where you wake up one day and realize you’re already in a relationship!
    As long as the substance is there - you're on the same page, future intentions, exclusivity I wouldn't worry much about what he calls you. I personally didn't like being called "friend" by someone I was dating so there's that. But it all sounds good. Enjoy!!!

    Less is always more, Mayflower. Keep it light.

    And I agree with the others. Introduce him by his name.

    Just to ask how does he feel about your son?

    Hes fine with dating a woman with a child. Hes done it in the past. But I havent introduced them yet. Im waiting for when I feel the time is right.

    It would be best to wait a year before introducing this man to your son.

    From what you say do I gather that this man is local to your area/city? How did you meet him?

    Have you ever considered that it might be better to take a break of a few months at least between a break-up (April) and immediately getting involved with a new person (current man)?

    Trying to ' motivate ' someone to do something before they choose to do it on their own tends to back fire.
    Wouldn't it mean more if he did so spontaneously? Pushing for It , I'd be wondering if he did it to appease me rather than it coming from a genuine place.
    It feels like an anxious desire to further cement a new relationship that seems to be going fine just the way it is.

    Hon, no labels are necessary. All that matters, is how he treats you.

    Are you exclusive? Why do you need a "talk" for a title? Is that a big deal in your culture? Titles mean nothing. Focus on what actions you observe. Focus on quality in-person interaction.
