I've had a friend with benefits for several years that I really caught some feelings for, and he's even told me at one point he has been getting kinda attached to me. We hang out more now than we ever did and I began to tell him I'm rather uncomfortable with him sleeping with other people, at which point he tells me he's not. But I continue and ask him if we can be exclusive. At first he tries to evade the question and tell me again he's not sleeping with anyone else, and I say I'm kinda looking for a promise that you won't. So he tells me he doesn't like to make promises but isn't sleeping with anyone else and doesn't plan to, and he's just really not looking to get tied down into a relationship right now since he is going away for a few months. But when I told him that answer just really didn't sit well with me and I wasn't sure i could continue things the way that they were he then told me he promised we could be exclusive. But since he had thrown in that part about not wanting a relationship, which I wasn't ready to have yet anyway, but I naturally assume if a guy's willing to be exclusive with you they must like you. And if they like you why would they throw out there they aren't interested in an actual relationship yet he's giving up his freedoms of being with other girls for me? I'm kinda confused. Why would a guy who doesn't want a relationship agree to be exclusive with you?

People have given their lives for freedom. It should be obvious.1
