Do you think a couple should date openly for a certain amount of time? or is it based upon a feeling? how long? or what feeling?

I love it when "some" people say this and imply that there comes a point where the other person has an "obligation" to become exclusive or to get married, etc.
If there comes a point where you're not getting something you want, then "act with your feet" and remove yourself from that situation and look for what you want somewhere else. That's something that's within your power and control, but demanding or trying to pressure someone else to give you what you want is not something that's within your power or control (not saying that that's what you were getting at, but just saying it as a general truism).
A relationship is completely voluntary between two people. If it's in their benefit to continue to associate with one another, they will continue to do just that. If it's no longer in their benefit, then they'll stop.
The real question you have to ask yourself is... NOT why being exclusive is beneficial to YOU... but why being exclusive is something that's beneficial to HIM. Again, I'm not saying that it's not. I'm just saying, that the moment the answer to that question becomes obvious and crystal clear... that's around the moment in time where two people "should" become exclusive.0
