Sometimes this could take the form of realizing that you are compatible on emotional or lifestyle grounds, missing him/her even when you are out with someone else or getting your hackles up with your partner’s ex is on the horizon.
At such times you have a strong desire to be with this person and no one else – if lucky, your date feels the same way about you too and things naturally progress to an exclusive dating.
If his dating profile is still active, it indicates that he is still not ready to make things exclusive between you two and wants to keep things more casual.
So before you feel devastated by your partner’s stance, consider where your relationship is placed right now – has it been only a few weeks you have started going out or has it been several months.
Look at your relationship objectively and if you see that you are still getting to know each other, it may not be so strange for your boyfriend to be on a dating site.
You have not talked about it Even if you and your partner share the same life goals and feelings for each other, do not assume that these are enough to decide in favor of an exclusive relationship.
A clear discussion on the issue is much more preferable if you don’t want to set yourself for disappointment later.
Even though you may feel awkward to put across middle-school type questions like, “will you be my girl/boyfriend?
”, still some kind of verbal indication should be insisted upon.
You could broach the matter with a casual question like “so who did you meet at the nightclub last Friday?
