Hi, when is the general timeline to take your profile off of the dating site you're on while you are dating someone, or when should/would one expect the person you're dating to take theirs down?

Definitely when the relationship becomes sexual/exclusive. Depending on how long you date without becoming sexual, I would think you'd both want to take it down when it's becoming clear that you only want to date each other. I know that's what I would want to do. Why would I want to spend another minute doing OLD?

For me. if I've gone on a few dates with a guy, I'd tend to "hide" my profile on OLD cause I like to concentrate on one person at a time and it's kind of a pain to be looking & fielding different requests while trying to get to know someone, then also if that 1st guy didn't work out, maybe I rejected people I otherwise would have wanted to date because of guy no. 1 so that isn't good either.  I think I would just do that w/o even asking the guy to do the same; however, at the point where it seemed like things were really going into a relationship as opposed to casual dating, then I'd probably talk to him and ask him if he was willing to take down his profile also.
