He may not see you as his girlfriend at this time.
He may be holding out on calling you his girlfriend because he doesn’t know whether you have reached that level.
You may believe that you have.
You may actually look at him as your boyfriend and may wonder why he doesn’t feel the same.
Do understand that you are both two separate individuals.
The experiences that you are having with him may be having an emotional impact on you.
However, this doesn’t mean that he is experiencing the exact same emotions with the exact same amount of energy.
He may be having a slower time of it.
It doesn’t mean that he will not ultimately get to where you are emotionally, but he may not be quite there yet.
It is easy to get caught up in how you feel.
You may even believe that the chemistry has been so good.
You may be encouraged by all the wonderful conversations that you have had with him.
You may have even gone on trips with him to wonderful places and had a great time.
This far, you believe that all signs would point to an exclusive relationship.
Again, you do have to understand that his own experience is unique to himself.
He is not always going to be on your wavelength.
Hence, you may be better off being patient with him.
If this is a relatively new relationship, he may be wise in being cautious.
You don’t want to enter a relationship too soon with someone you don’t know all that well.
It doesn’t matter how great the chemistry has been, you still have a person behind all that who is multi-layered.
You would have to understand what comes with this person so that you have an idea of how well you will get along.
Sometimes, it can be tempting to jump right into an exclusive relationship with a person because everything feels so right.
However, you should take this time to do yourself a favor and honestly get to know him as well.
If things work out, he just may call you his girlfriend in the future.
Another reason why he may not want to call you his girlfriend may be because he feels like there is something that is missing.
He may be waiting for it to happen.
Perhaps he wants you to see him at his worst before he feels comfortable calling you his girlfriend.
On the flip side, he may want to see you at your worst so as to determine whether he can handle it.
There may be too much perfection in this relationship at this time.
He may believe that it is too good to be true.
You are simply too perfect and there has to be a catch.
So as not to put himself in a place where he will later regret, he waits it out.
He may want to ascertain just how well you two will get along when things aren’t so rosy. Hence, he may be waiting for those moments where there may be a disagreement of some kind.
How you both deal with these moments may be what ultimately lets him know whether he should start calling you his girlfriend.
