Is there really even a difference?
Me & my girlfriends were talking about this recently & I was surprised that alot of people actually have different definitions of what it means to be "exclusive."
To some, asking another person to be exclusive with you is the SAME as basically asking for a relationship/official title.
To others, being exclusive means NOT yet having the official "relationship title" BUT yet agreeing to ONLY date eachother until a commitment or relationship is finally official or established in the near future (if that ever even happens).
What's your take on this? Is there really even a difference? I think acknowledging that everyone's definition of exclusive (or other things) may be different & actually trying to figure out those differences can actually save 2 people from a big misunderstanding, argument or long-term clash.
For instance, if a guy's definition of being exclusiveness has NOTHING to do with there being an official relationship title, a woman asking him to be exclusive & whom believes that an official commitment absolutely has everything to do with it, might get her feelings hurt & might think she's in a relationship/commitment even though the guy doesn't think so. And THAT can be a problem, especially when it comes to monogamy.
To some, being "Exclusive" means agreeing not to have sexual relations with anyone else. But what about the people who haven't yet had sex? Them not sleeping with others might just be their own way of practicing patience or abstinence, moreso that it indicating that they're committed to eachother. Some may not "give it up" b/c they wouldn't do so with anyone, vs. them only concealing the goods out of respect, loyalty & commitment to the other person.
Back in high school, 2 people would know they were officially in a relationship b/c 1 person (usually the guy) would literally come right out & ask, "Hey, will you be my girlfriend?" But now, it seems that people are naturally fading/falling into relationships with eachother, even if neither person verbally/technically made it official.
