I was reading some of the entries and found them to be very interesting. I have been on a few of the other boards too. Most recently the Surviving Divorce board for almost 2 years, it really helped me through a very long and difficult divorce.
So now I've been dating for about a year and actually most of that year with the same man. We get along great, have many mutual interests and see each other at least once a week or more. He pays me all kinds of compliments and is polite and respectful.
We have been discussing a weekend camping trip next month and I can't wait to go. I'm not dating anyone else and not even looking anymore and I want to have "the talk" with him about being exclusive with each other. Now I'm no spring chick and neither is he, but I've only really been back in the dating world a short time and don't know all the ropes I guess.
Is there anybody out there that can give me some advice or encouragement on how to even start this conversation? I'm usually a very straight forward person, but this one has me stumped I guess cause I'm not sure what his reaction will be or maybe I'm afraid of what his reply might be. If any of you remember me from the divorce board, I was in an abusive mariage for way too many years and I still working on the self esteem portion of my personality, which is going pretty good, I might add.
Boy - I'm rambling now, anyway, any advice out there?
