How to Take Your Relationship to the Next Level without Scaring Him Away

Becoming Exclusive

Communication is key and honesty is important in a relationship; but as the old adage goes “a little white lie never hurt anyone,” and in this case a small embellishment to get the conversation going can be very beneficial. A friend of mine was recently asked out while she had been dating someone for a while, and it provided the perfect excuse for her to bring up the exclusivity question with Guy #1. Beginning with an inquisitive, “hey so something happened the other day.” She was able to tell him that someone else had asked her out and she wasn’t sure what to tell him because she wasn’t sure where they stood.

1. She’s Touchy-Feely With You

Women are naturally more affectionate than men, but keep an eye out to see if she’s extra touchy-feely when it comes to you. Does she seem to create situations or make excuses so she can stand, sit or be close to you? Does she hug you both “hello” and “goodbye” when everyone else just waves or gives the typical nod greeting? If you find she’s touchy-feely with you, more than other people are, there’s a good chance that she may be interested in something more than friendship.
