You can only postpone moving forward in life and in relationships for certain amount of time, and have it still be considered normal..But unfortunately these days many times people bring old hang ups, insecurities, and issues from previous situations where they felt hurt in different ways , and they tend to be a bit cautious of becoming exclusive too quickly.Do you really want to sit there while they date other people for weeks upon weeks or months upon months while your feelings are developing solely for them?
This doesn’t mean that for every exclusive relationship that you explore that there’s a definite chance that you’ll end up together and get married one day.
Exploring exclusive relationships merely gives two people a chance to see if they can make it as a couple, as a team, as best friends, and as lovers.
For some people that are cool with waiting about seven years for someone to commit to them, the more power to them. I don’t feel that there’s really a timeline where you need to be with a person for before getting engaged.
As far as relationships go, I don’t see anything wrong with starting a relationship right off of the bat if you’re both feeling it.
Going about becoming exclusive with someone isn’t the same as it used to be back in the day (yeah, yeah, I’m aging myself, so what).
Nowadays, even if you see someone all of the time, date one another, only date each other, and spend all your time and effort communicating with each other, you still can’t assume that you’re exclusively dating or in a relationship.
One of the biggest ways of feeling loved is feeling as if someone makes the time for us and puts effort into things.
If someone is willing to explore an exclusive relationship with you, they believe that there’s enough potential for you to possibly have a future with one another.
Exclusive relationships are a great way to find out if you’ll be able to get along, and feel compatible enough to share your life with one another, settle down, get married, and possibly have children together one day.
When it comes to becoming exclusive with someone that you met in an online dating site or swiping app, etc., you should both deactivate after 3 dates with each other.
Generally speaking, people that are afraid to commit will have a hard time picking between dating this person exclusively or that one.
