I am scared of getting hurt and us not being on the same page.
Our chemistry was immediate (physical, intellectual, and emotional) and things have been very easy so far. I am totally comfortable with the speed (how often we are communicating, seeing each other, and sharing information about ourselves).
But, we recently slept together (it felt right and was great).
And, if I don’t talk with him immediately, when is the right time to talk about being exclusive (if he doesn’t bring it up)? I’m going to give you a cheat sheet to tell you the most effective way to get into a relationship with a new guy.
Before I do, I’d like to pre-empt all of the people who are inclined to tell me I’m wrong because they did it another way: yes, there are 100 ways to do things.
So you finally found someone you like on Hinge; you’ve been on a few dates; you're falling for them… Well, it looks like you two will become an official item quite soon: According to a new study, most couples become exclusive after four weeks of dating. Mic found that, of the study's 3,058 participants, 45.2 percent reported dating their partner for less than a month before having the exclusivity talk; meanwhile, 28 percent said that it took them one to two months to become exclusive. They attribute this lightning-speed exclusivity to how soon couples are becoming intimate (sleeping together after only 3.53 dates), and constantly being in communication via text.
More specifically, it takes an average of six dates to become exclusive and nine to call yourselves a couple, according to a Google Consumer Study conducted by Mic.
I am very happy (and he said that he is happy when he is with me) and like him the more I get to know him.
He’s attentive (he texts and chats with me online every day), affectionate, asks me out regularly (we have seen each other multiple times every week since we met), and makes time for me (he has a lot of interests and activities).
So: If we can make such big life choices in such a short amount of time…
what would it be like if other life events happened that fast?
