how long would you date someone exclusively before you KNOW you want to be with them for the long run? weeks? months?

I believe it takes at least 3 months before you really know someone.1

A few months, at least. It really depends on how frequently we see each other and the quality of the interactions. Shared experience is the backbone of any kind of relationship, because you can't effectively establish trust until you've interacted with a person to see how they treat you (and others around them) and had to rely on them to see where their care and loyalty lies. You also need some time to ease into each other's social and family lives--especially if you hail from different cultural backgrounds.1
