How do I have the exclusive talk? I have never done it and Google is not providing great answers.

I’d wait at the very least a month. I just said that i loved spending time with her and wasn’t interested in seeing anyone else and just let her take it as she would. She agreed and said the same and boom it was done

1st step: Don't Google anything.

Do what you feel is natural. If you want things to be exclusive, then ask him/her to a nice dinner and discuss it there. If you don't know how the other person will take it, maybe do something like go to a park or coffeeshop where if things turn out for the worse then you have a chance to get out of there whenever you would like. Odds are if the relationship moves forward, this won't be the first time that you need to have an intimate/important conversation

I'm going to have a bit of a challenge with my partner. He's very direct and needs things spelt out, I'm vague and playful. December makes a year for us so I think I have the timing down.

I would think it is assumed at that point? But yes, that’s a long time to be in relationship limbo!

We kinda are. I know he's only "seeing" me. I know his other female friends and he's out with them at group dinners and things like that. So I know I'm the only girl he's seeing/dating. But I want to have that talk because he's the type that needs it said to him. Just not sure how to say it and not look stupid. I already know his reply: Aren't we already exclusive? What changes after this talk?
This is where I have no answer and will look stupid.

Lol D1 your scenario seemed reasonable and cool. For me this wasn't even a conversation. I straight up told my girlfriend (now wife) that I was serious about our relationship and I wasn't dating her to waste her time.

My boyfriend and I didn’t have the exclusive talk. I think maybe because we are a bit older. I didn’t wanna have the conversation and he never forced it. He just made sure I knew I was important to him by always wanting to spend time with me and including me in important parts of his life and also started introducing me as his gf and that was it, lol. I say all this to say, don’t push it, don’t force it. If the person you’re with is on the same wavelength it will all work itself out. As a very type A person who needs to define everything I can believe I’m giving this advice but it worked for me. Good luck ♥️

We already speak of each other as bf/gf. I might not need to have this talk after all
