For instance, during conversation, he might say "I like to do XYZ with my girlfriend..the girl I'm dating..."In the big scheme of things, it's not a big deal - but I am curious. No reason to bring it up if things are going well and there isn't a concern that he's seeing other people anyways. Or did he say or do something to make you think he isn't as serious as you are?
Before I ask him his thoughts, I am looking for opinions on whether you guys make this distinction yourselves. Holy crap that's a whole lot of mess tied up with the definition of labels. I've had the discussion many times but to be honest I don't think I've ever actually used the term "mutually exclusive" outside of these message boards. Talk things out with him I treat those as the same thing..
Is the purpose for your question to clarify your position in your relationship ? I would guess someone who said "we are dating exclusively" are trying to leave a backdoor for themselves but still keep you tied up just for the mean time till they know for sure about you. Dating exclusively means you go out on dates with only one person at a time, presumably for as long as it takes to figure out whether or not you can stand the person enough to be in a relationship.
I want to be exclusive when dating someone and adding intercourse to the mix, and I would prefer that she does the same........does not necessarily make us the dreaded girlfriend/boyfriend thing, it just means that we are enjoying each other to the point of having sex and that we care enough for each other and ourselves to do that exclusively.
To place labels on things like this just is a turn off to me.
Every woman I met also had more or less the same idea about that as I did. It is also possible to be bf/gf without being exclusive if two people are into that.
Sounds to me like someone isn't sure what they want. The whole "dating exclusively" does not mean I'd have a girlfriend.
