For those who aren't social-media-friendly, there are other ways of letting the world know you're together, such as introducing each other as “girlfriend or boyfriend” and allowing your relationship to be in the limelight.Of course, holding hands or kissing in public never hurts.You're discovering the other person and maybe even falling in love, but also keeping your guard up.
A relationship is starting to get serious when you and your partner proudly display each other as significant others in the public eye.
You have no problem mentioning each other in tweets, posting photos together in Instagram pictures or including each other in Facebook status updates.
There is a certain point, however, where you can let your guard down and know that the relationship is real and there's no sign it's going to end.
This is the point where you can begin feeling far more relaxed and secure.
Most relationships go through a “gray” trial period where both partners are unsure if they're on the same page with feelings and the status of the relationship.
This period is as exciting as it is emotionally tumultuous.
