What Counts as “Being in a Relationship”?

I’d say pretty much everyone can agree there’s a difference between dating someone and being in a relationship.  But pretty much NO ONE can agree beyond that.

  A new survey asked what counts as “being in a relationship” . . . and here are some of the results.

 1.  Been dating for a year or more . . . 84% say that means you’re in a relationship.

 2.  Dating for six months or more . . . 72% say that means you’re in a relationship.

 3.  You’ve agreed not to date other people . . . 70%.

 4.  You’ve both said “I love you” . . . 60%.

 5.  You have a drawer at their place . . . 58%.

 6.  You’ve changed your Facebook status to “in a relationship” . . . 40%. 

 7.  You’ve had sex . . . 17%.

 8.  You’ve been on three dates . . . 8%.

 9.  You’ve been to their house . . . 8%.

 10.  You’ve been on a single date . . . 5% of people say that means you’re in a relationship.
