50 Ways to Know ‘We’re Going Steady’

Have you ever been talking to someone and all of a sudden you realize how serious their feelings are for you? Don’t think that you two would have to be talking for a long time either. I’m always telling you that actions speak louder than words. It could be possible that the reason they feel so strongly for you and the reason they believe that you two are going steady is because you’ve done one or more of the things my Public Relations Director, Shanese, and I put together in this list of very true, yet hilarious things that may lead the person you’re “talking to” to believe that you two “go together”. For many of you, you’ll see that you are guilty of more than a few of these actions, so this post is to basically let you know that you MUST BE CAREFUL of what your actions say to the person who wants to get close to you and that you must take the time to read what their actions are trying to say to you! Let’s get into it!

Hopefully, you laughed a good bit, but also have a better idea of some things that scream “WE GO TOGETHER”. If you don’t really like someone or have no intentions of being serious with that person, don’t take advantage of boyfriend or girlfriend privileges. It’s just flat out misleading and hurtful to the person who is choosing to invest their time and emotions in you!

Peace and love, dear reader.
