We actually nevever brought it up it kinda just happened… Maybe when we met each others parents?? About a month in. 

I had been kind of seeing a guy leading up to meeting FI but as soon as I chose to meet face to face (we met online) I chose to stop contact with the other guy. I figured if I was thinking about meeting up with someone else I definitely wasn’t interested in continuing with the other guy (who was more of a friend to hang out with than someone serious)

ETA when i changed my status on Facebook hehe if it’s not on fb it didn’t happen πŸ™‚

If by exclusive you mean in a verbally acknowledged monogamous relationship, then pretty much immediately.

I’ve never dated multiple guys at the same time…the one I’m with gets it all.

Mr. Lovely Owl was the one who brought up the terms “boyfriend/girlfriend”. I actually told him to wait because I wasn’t ready (it had been 2 weeks). After another week I felt ok about it.

We met through mutual friends…he’s the ex-husband of my ex-best friend’s cousin (complicateeed). Lots of drama around us getting together.

We met online too, but we were friends for awhile beforehand.  It just developed slowly over time and I always said I wouldn’t date online but he changed my mind πŸ™‚  I wanted to wait until after we met in person to consider him my boyfriend but my feelings made us exclusive long before that, I think it was when I realised what a truly wonderful person he was that I had never seen the depths of before πŸ™‚

I met my SO at work, I was just getting out of an 8 yr relationship. We became best friends and then started seeing each other. As for being exclusive, we were always exclusive since we started dating 4 yrs ago; no conversation just a mutual understanding.

I hate admitting this but we met on the computer way back in the myspace days. we actually had a distant mutual friend in common if that makes sense. we started hanging out more and more and more of our weekends were spent talking about what eachother were doing the following weekend. We were pretty much inseperable after we first hung out but late january he brought up the subject of having a monogomous relationship

FI brought it up. He wanted to be monogamous after our first date. He was so cute asking. πŸ™‚

We met as coworkers.  Went on a date a week after meeting each other, then 4 days later at a bonfire asked me to be exclusive.  Very fast I know!  He was very quick to ask me to be his gf, but took 8 years to finally propose lol

We were always “exclusive” so to speak. We started dating in high school and it was just understood that we would only be in a relationship with each other.

We started dating about a week after we met, and we were immediately exclusive.  We had been dating about 2 weeks or so before we became officially official πŸ™‚  I think I was the one to bring up the conversation, but I had known his parents since the first or second date and he had met my parents that day.
