Why do men want exclusive relationships with women?In many instances a woman may ask herself, if he dating me exclusively or is he seeing other women?When couples start to talk about vacations, holiday plans, or even booking theatre tickets months out and he says, “We should go to this,” then you’ll know you’re more than just a plus one for an office party. Sure some people easily say “I love you” for sex, but if you’re together five or more nights a week, talk and text every day, and they profess their love for you, chances are they mean it. He brags about you and introduces you to his female friends. When you’re in an exclusive relationship, just being together cuddling, watching television, or spooning at night shows how comfortable he is in having you in his life. While some people aren’t quick to change their relationship status until they’re engaged or married, if their Facebook page includes multiple photos of the two of you embraced as a couple, it sends a message to friends and others that they are taken and proud of it. Rather than being sneaky about it, your guy will feel comfortable enough in your relationship to tell you about it, rather than sneaking into another room to respond to the text. While some people make clean breaks with their ex, others still have occasional contact. When both of you know that you’ll be spending weekends together, or at least Friday and Saturday nights, you’re probably exclusive.
You decided to meet and on your first date things go great.While I still believe what I wrote there, I’m finding that many of the women who are contacting me are not at the point where they are sure if the man is their “boyfriend” or not.With that in mind I wanted to review one of the recent emails I’ve received from a reader and offer some additional advice for this problem.It’s one thing for him to tell the guys about his hot date or GF, but when he tells his closest female friends all about you, he’s getting the vote of approval and wants to share his joy. When he’s ready to let go of her and move onto a meaningful relationship with you, he’ll let his ex know he has a GF, so respectable boundaries can be set. When you exchange keys with enthusiasm he’s letting you know that you now have the key to his heart.This conversation sends the message that the past will stay in the past and you’ve moved on.
