"Talking stage" for 5 months. Is it too soon to expect a relationship?

sammiejeanx3
So I've been dating this guy for about 5 months now. He's sweet, listens to me, makes me laugh- all that good stuff. I really like him but I'm not sure how much he likes me. I've never been in a real relationship. The only "boyfriend" I ever had was some on-again-off-again guy who treated me like shit. I want a real relationship but not if the other person isn't as into it as I am.

I recently spoke to him letting him know that I am looking for a relationship and don't want to be in the "talking" stage forever. He told me he's scared of relationships. I understand that, I was too for about 5 years but that really doesn't change anything on my side. My girlfriends tell me to just drop him. I'm not sure if I should or if I should give him time to wrap his head around the idea of a relationship. But then I'm thinking how long is too long? I don't want to just sit around waiting for him to make moves as if he's the only one who has a say. Anyone have some advice?
