So, we met in person about a month ago, and we’ve been having nice, casual dates. Brunch, library book sale, movie, picnic (which we both brought homemade food), and now we just had dinner and Netflix at his place. He didn’t kiss me until the end of our second date, and he’s been very respectful of my personal space. Tonight at his place, we basically cuddled all night... and I felt him occasionally kissing my head and/or smelling my hair. It was active cuddling (rubbing arm, stroking shoulders) too, instead of pseudo-sleeping. We didn’t even make out, although we made out a little bit while on our picnic (I felt
weird and stopped it since there was a family nearby). He texts me every morning to wish me a good day and he sends me random texts throughout the day (even though I usually can’t text back since I’m teaching). He remembers things that I’ve told him, including preferences. He’s called me adorable many times.
I’m trying not to over-analyze... but it feels like we’re already boyfriend and girlfriend. Keep in mind also at we’re both around 30, so it’s kind of odd how this is going. Pleasant and comfortable but odd. I don’t want to initiate a conversation with him YET because a) who asks about exclusivity after one month? And b) I’m insecure that he will tell me I’m jumping the gun.
Any outside perspective?
I suppose I’m analyzing this because if I have “the talk” with him too soon I’m concerned he might feel weirded out. It’s just this month of dating has been more of a relationship in terms of communication and consideration than the last two relationships I’ve been in.
