When to discuss dating exclusively
They officially declare themselves a couple after nine dates, on average.
So how can one month of six dates turn into an exclusive relationship? People tend to spend at least have estimated that we're willing to both kiss and sleep with someone after just two to five dates.
I say we were "dating" in the beginning because we were regularly going on dates right off the bat.
So, the way I see it, "dating" is what happens before you're boyfriend and girlfriend.That means after six short dates, 20-somethings are bound to have kissed, had sex multiple times and spent cumulatively an entire day with the person they're just beginning to date.Think of how many of the Six dates might not seem like enough to build intimacy, much less prompt an exclusivity conversation.What are you agreeing to when someone asks if you want to "date" them?!These are all questions we need to have answered if we wish to go forward as INFORMED LOVERS.
