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.
It doesn’t seem to have worked out so he’s cycled back to you. You don’t really know how compatible you’re going to be with someone until you kiss a few toads.
If you want to date him exclusively, then ask him if that’s an option.
OK, so you’ve navigated the world of online dating, read hundreds of profiles, sent countless messages, been on a handful of dates.
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.
There really shouldn’t be any need to rush into anything – however, it’s important to be realistic.
