Why would a man ask a woman he is dating this kind of question?
Most Helpful Guy
Well... he is most likely comfortable with this being 'open' and undefined right now. It lets him feel free to see other people should he feel so inclined, without feeling guilty about it. So he is probably checking in from time to time to see if he has reason to be jealous. A lot of guys find that it is far easier to have an 'open' relationship when they are seeing other people but their partner isn't. As soon as their partner starts seeing someone else, the idea of it being open is far less appealing, and they often will then start the talks about exclusivity. Unless he is more into open relationships, which is also totally possible.
