Dating turn into a relationship
It is often said that women are the gatekeepers to sex, while guys are the gatekeepers to commitment. If you think sex is everything that a guy wants, you're wrong.As a result, many women have a love-hate relationship with sex. The sex alone isn't worth it if he doesn't like you all that much, especially if you constantly nag and create drama.But when it comes to guys, what I’ve seen in my experience is my own friends, just questions that we’ve gotten on here, you really have to have that “define the relationship” conversation pretty much as soon as you guys are starting to hang out consistently.I’m not saying you have to define it then and there but you better be on the same page because a lot of guys will continue to do what they’re doing with you as long as you allow us to a lot of the times.I still have Tinder and Bumble on my phone but hardly ever check them because I’ve been busy with him. What he’s saying with that question about her phone is, “Are you exclusive with me? Then when he says no, then you have that conversation about exclusivity.

He's not committing or moving the relationship forward because he doesn't feel it on the gut level, or he has told you that he isn't ready or doesn't want a relationship.

Nudge your relationship forward by being more secure. Self-fulfillment is the answer to all of your relationship issues.

I’ve read that it’s better to avoid having the “define the relationship” conversation and just let it happen naturally, which is how this seems to be going, except for last night.
