why be friends before dating - When to ask are we dating
I am asking because I don’t know if this agreement is assumed on your part or if he explicitly said, “Yes, you and I are exclusive…” or, better yet, “I want to be exclusive with you.” I’ll explain why I bring that up in a moment, but at any rate I agree with you that checking his dating profile seems out of step with having an exclusive relationship with you…
I would think things like, “Well, things seem good, but what if she’s doing something behind my back and playing me for a fool, etc.
etc.” This type of thing has a lot more to do with our own personal insecurities and not so much with what the other person is or isn’t doing.
People are so quick to snap up something half-hearted and then try to make that half-hearted relationship into something more.
I’m not saying that never ever works out, but you are much more likely to succeed in your love life when you take the easy path which is: Say NO to what is what you don’t want and learn what makes what you want most likely to come to you.
Now to keep that in perspective, I also say it’s in your best interest to do and be everything you can in order to make the kind of men you desire to really to commit to you. When both people really want a great relationship, the relationship feels effortless.
