It is stupid, but then again, a lot of people in relationships have different ideas about what they can and can't talk about. If you are open about how you feel, he may slowly come around to your way of thinking.

My girlfriend and I have what can only be described as a platonic relationship. We meet often, go to movies together, eat out a lot, and even spend time with other friends who think of us as a couple. The weird thing is we are not physically intimate at all. We don't kiss or hold hands, and sex is out of the question because we haven't even discussed this. I don't even know if I should call this a regular relationship because it sometimes feels so weird. Am I actually dating this person or am I just a friend? I'm confused. How do I talk to her about it? What can I say?

If you're not sure about whether or not you're actually in a relationship, I'd say you're not. If you have been together for a while and still can't figure out if this is your girlfriend, there is something seriously wrong. Why can't you talk to her about it? Why can't you ask her how she feels? Why do you assume it's better to let things stay the way they are, when you are clearly not happy about it? Don't you owe it to yourself and to her to have a conversation about what exactly the two of you are doing and what you think this is? Do you want to spend the next few months living exactly the same way? If you are comfortable with it, go with the flow. If you're not though, the sooner you have this chat, the better it will be for you both.
