Dating—Just getting to know each other but you know you have other options as well. The above conversation came from Reddit and I found it simple and easy to understand. Yes, the new dating jargon that the millennials use is tricky but then their relationships are also far more nuanced than the non-Millenials! Are you confused between casual dating, dating exclusively and a committed relationship?

Status message

Remember when Jed from this past season of The Bachelorette botched his engagement with Hannah because he was clearly in a relationship before coming on the show, and uh, told her after the proposal? Needless to say, they said their goodbyes to each other. Are you just talking?


It can be a trap. While women tend to date looking for commitment and relationships, men often date for fun, companionship and attention. Finding a life partner may not be the first priority. He can kick back and rest easy.

Exclusive relationship rules

He has you locked down and your options closed. The chase is over and he can settle into a safe routine. So many women agree to be exclusive with a guy early on, often after only a few dates.

Hand it over to him for nothing and the connection process gets stalled. Guys feel safer with women who are cautious with who they hand their hearts to. Guys who want to be exclusive after a few dates are often serial monogamists. An ex-boyfriend of mine wanted to be exclusive after two weeks.

We were together for three years. A month after I broke up with him he was in an exclusive relationship with the woman who was to become his future wife. Made me feel super special. It was one relationship right into the next, often with some overlap.

I shoulda seen it coming. But I see them now! Exclusive dating is just dating one person.

It gives him all the benefits of being a boyfriend without actually having to be your boyfriend. Pretty rad, right? I dated a guy exclusively for months but he was never my boyfriend. Despite spending 4—5 nights a week together, going out on weekends, taking me to dinner, the movies, calling, texting, bringing me gifts… you know, acting like a boyfriend. We had a routine. He sex and companionship on lock. Being dating without this gives him an not out.

A lot of women are. He loses any respect he might have had for you by you agreeing to put up with it. Is he your boyfriend?
