So I've been dating this guy for 2 weeks now and yesterday was our 3rd date. It was in his place. He's touching me while we're watching and things get hot. I can see that he so crazy to have sex with me but then suddenly he said we should wait for a bit before we do it. I mean I'm totally agree but this is the first time I met a guy that wants to wait for a while for sex. He's an Arab but born and grew up in US and I'm Asian. He's not religious and even do not consider himself as Muslim. We're in Middle East now but here people are very liberal and casual sex are accepted. Is this mean he wants a serious relationship? When I jokingly said that we should wait 1 yr before sex he answered me if he will wait that long he will break up with me now. Well I know it's a joke but I don't know that we're already in a relationship. Does men joke about that? I mean I'm very cautious with jokes about relationship because I don't want my partner to assume something. Does these means he's thinking I'm already his girlfriend?

There could be a few possibilities here. Have a more serious talk with him about it, jokes aside, and find out. It's only your 3rd date though so I wouldn't worry too much about it.1

It's only the 3rd date and because you have been seeing each other for 2 weeks, there is no guarantee. It means he respect you enough to take it slow. He prolly sees a future with you as of now but again, it is too early and he still wants to get to know you before being intimate with you. As for the relationship part, just say you had no idea you both were exclusive, since he didn't ask you whether you two are official or not.2
