Asking him straight out is never a good idea, but knowing what to look for will help.
Are you an important part of this relationship? There are guys out there who'll become involved with a girl simply to have a plus one when they go out.
It's just to have company and they never really come to care for her.
If your guy isn't taking you into consideration when he makes decisions regarding what you will do or where you will go on a date, he simply doesn't care.
When a man is interested in a woman, he wants her to be happy within the relationship.
Where does he go when you have a problem? When a guy is just in it to have a pretty girl on his arm, you can bet that he'll skedaddle the moment you bring up a problem in your life.
He doesn't want to hear about it and he doesn't want to help you with it.
Men love playing the hero to the lady they love.
Not only will he want to hear about your problem, but he'll want to be a part of the solution.
He'll be quick to offer advice and may even step in to help you himself.
Has he not even made the most basic of commitments? Sure there are those first vague dates when you're just getting to know one another and you may both be seeing other people.
But once you get into a set pattern of seeing each other on a regular basis, it's quite normal for you to begin considering dating exclusively.
If he resists, hear him out, but know in the back of your mind that if he still insists on seeing other women, it's because he's not really sure you're the one yet.
Consider the possibility that he may never be sure.
Even men who still have a few doubts will want to be with that one special woman.
Read the signs he shows you and discover whether you're with a dub or a stud.
