How to know you’re ready to become exclusive

You’ve been dating him for a while. Here are some ways to tell if you’re ready to make the relationship more serious.

Happy couple

You like the guy in your life, and you’ve been seeing him regularly for a while now. If you check out some of these signs, you may discover that both of you seem keen to take the relationship to the next level and make it exclusive.

You see each other more often than ever

But now it completely slips your mind, and you haven’t logged in for weeks.

You’ve stopped checking out other men

You still notice and appreciate attractive men when you encounter them at the grocery store or on the bus (you’re still a woman, after all!), but while you perhaps used to wonder what they were like and maybe would even check their finger for a wedding ring, nowadays you just take note of their good looks; your romantic thoughts are now only occupied by the one you’re seeing,
