Knowing the signs he wants to be exclusive isn’t easy. Guys are hard to read and if you try to make it official before he’s ready, it could go bad. I know how hard it can be to start something new with someone and then wonder if they’re in it for the real thing. Because you are. You want to be with them but you’re just not sure they’re feeling the same way yet. That’s why being able to read the signs he wants to be exclusive will come in handy. You won’t have to worry about jumping the gun when it comes to the topic of becoming “official.” We all know how awkward it can be to wrongly assume someone is at the same place emotionally as you are.
How to know when it’s been long enough to become exclusive
This is really the greatest question asked by people. How long do we have to wait before becoming a committed couple? And honestly? It’s really just up to you and your partner. There isn’t a solid timeframe. You don’t just wait a month and suddenly become official. You move at the pace that works best for you. If you both know you want to be committed after only two dates, that’s great! If it takes you a few more months before you want to commit yourself to someone else, that’s okay too. Do what works for you but just keep the line of communication open so you both know.
Signs he wants to be exclusive
If you’re curious as to whether or not the guy you’re seeing is ready to be your boyfriend, asking him is clearly not a good bet. Sure, you could but if he’s really not ready at all, it’ll be awkward and he might get skittish. Therefore, making sure he’s showing the signs he wants to be exclusive, and that will help you know if a discussion should be had. Here’s how to know if he’s ready to commit to you.
#1 He initiates spending time together. This will be something any guy who likes you will do. They’ll be the ones to make the plans and initiate spending time with you. Basically, if he’s continuously making an effort to be in your life and to have you in his life, he wants to be committed to you. This is one of the more obvious signs he wants to be exclusive but make sure he’s showing other signs before assuming.
