I haven't gone on a date in over six months. I have one set up in two days. I'm actually kind of nervous because dating has never really been my thing. The last guy I went on a date with asked me if I wanted to be exclusive and I was honest with him and said that we needed to get to know each other better first before we became exclusive. We had only known each other for two weeks. He stopped talking to me because of my honesty. The guy I have a date set up with and I have only known each other for 3 weeks and I'm scared the same thing will happen. I do like this guy but we barely know each other and I'm not the type to jump into a serious relationship right away. I am the type that needs a friendship before a relationship because I feel like you can't have a successful relationship without a solid friendship to back it up. Every potential relationship I've had has failed because they want the whole package right away. I take things slow, but they act like a two weeks is too long. It's not that I'm afraid of commitment and I'm not a flaky person, but I need more than a couple of weeks before I can give someone the girlfriend card. Maybe it's just me, but you would think a guy would prefer to have someone who doesn't jump into serious right away. I know it kind of freaks me out when guys want everything right away.
