In my experience, however, when men express that they are dating multiple people and have no interest in a commitment, they mean it.
He's finally become "John" instead of "skinny legs" or "pre-med."2.
You feel excited about the idea of finally calling someone "my boyfriend." You might have started calling him this already in conversation because it's easier than discussing him as "this guy I've been seeing who's really amazing and could be, like, a Real Thing." 3.
When you're at the store, you pick up his favorite candy/soda/lemonade just because.
You don't even have to wonder about whether or not he'll be coming over sometime soon because you know he will. This is because making plans with him is incredibly easy. You couldn't believe how easy it was to resolve the issue, having been with so many people before who didn't listen to you or try to see your side of the story.15. You're proud to be dating him and want your mom to know you're done with skinny-leg Jed or whoever.16.
You mentioned that you have been sending e-mails to him, and sometimes he does not reply to them at all, and when he does there is a delay, and the content of his e-mails seems to be very impersonal, belying your interpretation of your face-to-face experiences with him.
From that information alone, there is confirmation that his feelings for you differ than those you feel for him.With as something as serious as finding a long-term relationship, there is no rush.I commend you for being honest enough with your own feelings and the man you’ve been dating to inquire about exclusivity, and I also commend him for his honesty in expressing to you what his true interests are.Since you know in your heart that you’re looking for an exclusive relationship and also know that this particular man you are dating is unable to give that to you, I suggest getting to know your other matches while letting this relationship fall to the back burner.Should he come back to you at a later time and is able to give you what you are looking for, then I wish you both all of the happiness in the world.Four dates may seem like a lot to you right now, but there will be countless more of those—and with reciprocated affection and less doubts about where you stand—when you are dating the right person for you.
