It was established early on that neither of us date multiple people at the same time and that we will be/are exclusive.
We've been exclusive since the beginning (2 months ).no making out, no dating, and of course no sex with anyone else).A man’s theory on commitment is that it evolves slowly, long after exclusivity.For instance, during conversation, he might say "I like to do XYZ with my girlfriend..the girl I'm dating..."In the big scheme of things, it's not a big deal - but I am curious. No reason to bring it up if things are going well and there isn't a concern that he's seeing other people anyways. Or did he say or do something to make you think he isn't as serious as you are?Before I ask him his thoughts, I am looking for opinions on whether you guys make this distinction yourselves. Holy crap that's a whole lot of mess tied up with the definition of labels. I've had the discussion many times but to be honest I don't think I've ever actually used the term "mutually exclusive" outside of these message boards. Talk things out with him I treat those as the same thing..However he doesn't want to label it a relationship as he says he feel comfortable with that label yet.
