Online Dating Rules: Define the relationship

It can be hard to define how you feel about someone, especially if the relationship is moving quickly. Getting to know someone through online dating, hanging out for weeks or even months and ‘talking about it’ isn’t always easy because talking doesn’t mean you’ll come to any agreements.

One of the problems with waiting until things are well underway to talk about your expectations is that one person may assume they’re exclusive when the other doesn’t feel the same way. And if neither party talks about what’s going on up front, you risk a situation where one person feels betrayed when the other has no idea a misunderstanding was brewing!

To avoid this problem before it starts:

Before going out on another date someone, find a time to talk about defining the relationship. You can do this in person, over the phone or by using a site like WhatsYourPrice.com to make sure you’re both on the same page before things get more serious. Make sure your talk is open and honest – that will save any future problems!

Don’t worry about offending someone if this is your final decision. You’ll find that there are plenty of fish in the sea!

If you’ve been seeing someone for a while and think they may be “the one,” it’s time to start having conversations to define the relationship. That doesn’t mean you need to immediately jump into an exclusive commitment; it just means talking openly about why you’re spending time together and how you each see the relationship progressing.

After all, no one likes surprises like: “I thought we were going on dates exclusively!”

To avoid this problem before it starts:

Before going out on another date someone, find a time to talk about defining the relationship. You can do this in person, over the phone or by using a site like WhatsYourPrice.com to make sure you’re both on the same page before things get more serious. Make sure your talk is open and honest – that will save any future problems!

If one of you is unsure about exclusivity but you both want to be together, it’s better to figure this out sooner rather than later. We all tend to get excited when we’re really into someone and keeping an “open” mind . It’s easy for surface conversations and appearances to deceive you, so don’t let emotions cloud your judgment. Keep saying those three very important words: “What did you say?”

People can and DO change their minds, so if your significant other is unsure or hedging his/her bets, don’t let yourself become a backup plan. Wait until the person knows that they want to be with you exclusively before going on another date. You deserve that much from someone who says he or she cares about you.
