You will know if he is interested in you based on whether he is initiating contacts and dates, giving you things (flowers, gifts, treats, whatever), making time in his schedule to spend with you, etc, or whether he is ignoring you, making other plans all the time, giving excuses, etc.People will have their own timeframe for when they feel comfortable being exclusive.
Some prefer to stay monogamous from the start, while others like to keep their options open, just as some view sex as something to be saved until the blossoming of a full-on relationship, while others need it early on to determine levels of chemistry and attraction.
The key is to be honest in your intentions without being bossy about the behaviour you expect from the man or woman you’re seeing.
You can see it there on the horizon – the whole “So where’s this going? The dating game has changed dramatically, and while it used to be as simple as a quick conversation along the lines of “OK, so we like each other, let’s make this official”, there is now a list of new stages in a fledgling relationship that can seem to make things more confusing.
Everything has become a little ill-defined, and I wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve asked yourself these kinds of questions: The early stages of dating should be when you’re having the most fun of all, so don’t let things worry you, because really this is when you should be running through parks holding hands and making slushy PDAs on the tube.
If you keep these discussions light and non-confrontational, you’ll soon know where you stand, and if you’re not happy with their stance, you can decide early on whether it’s something you want to proceed with.
