Frequently Asked Questions

1. How long does it take for a guy to know that he wants to be exclusive?

All couples are different, and so are their relationships. Therefore, one cannot precisely say how much time a guy will need before he wants to be exclusive. He may need to meet you two to three times to make this decision, or he may take ten meetings to decide on this. The answer majorly depends on how much time you spend together, the depth of your communication, and how well you connect.

2. How do I get a guy to want me exclusive?

If you want a guy to commit to you exclusively, do not be hasty about your relationship. Let things be at their own pace, do not persuade him into an exclusive relationship when he is not prepared, and work on building a deeper connection. As you gradually build intimacy and share your desires and feelings openly, you will find that your partner will start wanting you exclusively.

When you start going out and date a man you like, you may be thinking, does he want a relationship or has no intentions of committing anytime soon. It can be tough to determine what a man could be thinking. Nonetheless, there could be specific hints that a man might show when he is ready for a long-term relationship with you. He may be protective of you, prioritize you over others, respect your opinions, be interested to know little details about you, and encourage you. These could be signs that a man is interested in a relationship. However, if he has not yet revealed his feelings, he could be waiting for the right time and settling a few things before popping the question.
