#9. Most couples wait 6-8 dates before going exclusive
Everyone has been through this a few times. You meet someone that you really like, but you haven’t had “the talk yet and you’re starting to panic. The truth is, it’s not always easy to broach this subject at the beginning of a new courtship. You want to feel and look confident, and avoid looking too needy. The good news is that most couples wait about 6-8 dates before locking in the exclusivity. Stay honest and open with your date during this time, and don’t fret if the topic comes up sooner or later. Establishing trust and open communication early on will set a really good foundation for your future relationship.
