When it comes to relationships, the question of when to become exclusive can be a tricky one. If you know your partner is seeing other people and you'd like them to stop, it can be difficult to know when the right time is to ask them to be exclusive. While there are no hard and fast rules, experts suggest that you wait at least three months after you start dating someone before asking them to be exclusive. This gives you both time to get to know each other and decide if this is something you both want.
Of course, everyone is different and some people may feel comfortable asking to become exclusive after just four dates, while others may prefer to wait until they have been on appointment ten or more before making that change. It's important to take your time and make sure that you are both ready for this step in the relationship. If you're not sure when the right time is, it can help to talk about it with your partner. Ask them how they feel about the relationship and if they're ready for exclusivity. This can help you both decide if this is something that you want and if now is the right time. Becoming exclusive in a relationship can be a big step, but it doesn't have to be scary.
By taking your time and talking about it with your partner, you can make sure that you're both ready for this next step.
