How long should you date before having the exclusive talk?
Chlipala recommends waiting at least a couple months. It doesnt have to be exact, but I recommend dating someone for two to three months before you think about exclusivity, she says. It gives you enough time for some of the infatuation to wear off and for patterns to emerge.
Does talking mean youre exclusive?
It means that another human being has agreed to be only with you romantically speaking. Exclusive dating is a two-way street, so you get the privilege of knowing that some other awesome human being has made a commitment to you. Its the first step in the process of a long-term relationship.
