When a relationship is serious, it’s common to define it as long term in order to qualify its significance. But what does long term really mean? Chitchatting with some girlfriends the other night, I realized that we all had a different length of time that qualified as long term in our books. For some of them it was only a few months, but one was a stickler for length — she said two years! So what about you? Do tell, how much time has to pass before you consider a relationship to be long term? Or does it have more to do with the seriousness than any set amount of time?
