  • To me, it is all the same things as marriage. No seeing other people, no "flirtatious" conversation...all eyes on the one you are with.

  • JMO, but if you have to ask that question then you probably aren't ready for a commitment. No disrespect but when you know you know.

  • Marriage is a true commitment. Everything else is trying it out to see if it works, but leaving it easy to bail if you decide you don't want to be there.

  • A commitment doesnt mean marriage. marriage is a legal thing and a piece of paper (im an expert there) you are there for them no matter what happens.
