Come to find out he was insecure and had control issues. The idiot had a failed marriage and after me eventually married some foreign women he dated for 6 months I am in my early 40s and my BF and I knew after our first date, that we were going to be exclusive and be in a committed relationship. With everything else going on in our lives with kids, careers, just life in general When you find someone you like and you think you want to get to know them better, you decide to get into a committed relationship and try sharing your life with them.
After 15 months together, we are still crazy about each other. Since your friend is freshly out of a 30 year relationship, I can see why she would be freaked out. In my first year post-divorce, I went on a date with a cardiologist. He was nice, funny, successful and good looking. He had been single for a long time and was ready to get married and start a family. After our second date, he told me he likes me a lot and if I felt the same way, we could be exclusive and work towards getting married within the year. Even though he was a great guy, it freaked me out because I was just out of a 10 year marriage!
I chickened out and never saw him again. He got married to another physician within 6 months and they had a child soon after.
When is a relationship a relationship?

It doesn't necessarily mean he believes it. Its just easier to say girlfriend than this girl ice been dating.

The more we engage in physically intimate behaviors with our partners, from kissing to casual sex, the more likely we are to form meaningful bonds that can lead to the real-deal girlfriend or boyfriend talk.
Plus there's evidence that heightened levels of the bond-forming hormone oxytocin are responsible for driving those got-to-have-you early feelings of love as well as maintaining long-term connections. That's a lot less than six dates. That physical and emotional intimacy is amplified by behaviors that connect us faster and more frequently to the people we've just met.

That constant contact fosters feelings of support and communication that make relationships last. Those texts, emoji-filled as they may be, are shortcuts to intimacy. We do not condone this practice. That increased communication, plus the physical intimacy, is jumpstarting relationships in a way not previously seen.
In the early to midth century, young daters were actually likely to keep their options open ; women were discouraged from eating over a man's house during the evening, and young people were advised to date as widely as possible before getting " pinned. Fast, but not crazy: When it comes to being "exclusive," six dates, or less than four weeks, isn't so nuts: It's the perfect terrain between something casual and something incredibly serious — but it's past the point where you're just leading someone on.
After six dates, spending time with that person becomes a considerable investment. It's not crazy to want to start assessing whether to move on or really commit.
