It's great—except that you have no idea where things stand.
He has yet to introduce you as his girlfriend or bring up being exclusive, and you're craving that "couple" title and the security that comes with it.

It's easy to let parts of yourself go when you meet someone you think is the man of your dreams. "Trying to be someone you're not is so transparent to a guy," Kelman says.

"You want to create something worth investing in and make him realize your value," Trespicio says.
"If you're always waiting around, he won't feel the need to try that hard."Build some intrigue into your schedule that keeps him wanting more.
