First I'm not talking about open relationship, I am simply talking about dating. I've seen this kind of thing happen before and even happen it happen to me. Sometimes one person in a relationship just assume that it's exclusive and doesn't talk with the person they're seeing about it. Then later find out they don't feel the same way about the relationship and then are hurt and get mad at the other person. You can't really blame the other person because you just assume something without asking.

As the female, and the one more likely to want something more serious/exclusive, I never assume we are until he's said so. Preferably, been the one to bring it up. I have made this assumption before when an ex and I got back together, and it hurt tremendously when I found out otherwise.
Now, I assume we are open unless otherwise stated by him. I don't actively go out looking to date many guys at the same time, but I will be open to it unless exclusivity is discussed. I feel this is part of the incentive in him committing to me.0
