I want to hear people's differences here.
When people start dating I notice these things get very confused. Some people date multiple people, others date one at a time. Some consider dating exclusively to be a boyfriend/girlfriend scenario yet others call it "just dating."
Define your terms of dating, exclusive dating, and committed relationship and tell me if exclusive dating is the same or different to you as a committed relationship. Some people say exclusive dating is a stage before a committed relationship too so I want to know if others are the same way or have differences. Is it different? Is it the same?

Everyone seems to define the two differently. I personally choose to be in exclusive relationships because it allows me to be committed but not bring all the things a boyfriend is "suppose" to do. As a boyfriend, media and society has made the title of a boyfriend into a job in my opinion. Your either a good boyfriend, or a bad boyfriend. Or sometimes that stupid excuse: A good boyfriend but better as a "friend".
When I don't have the title, I can just do me. If I want to surprise her with flowers I'm doing that to make her smile, not because as a "good" boyfriend that's what I'm suppose to do. If I talk to other girls, I don't feel guilty, but I have my limits on HOW I talk to other girls.
At the end of the day being a Boyfriend or Girlfriend is just a title to me. Does this make sense?0
