When it's time to discuss the possibility of dating "seriously"--which in mono circles would involve exclusivity--is when these things get negotiated.
So this gets me wondering.
When you date or sleep with someone, at what point do you folks ask if they are seeing someone else?
How do you ask?
- are you seeing other people?
- is there a SO in your life?
How much of the onus is on the person in the relationship to volunteer the info, and how much is on the other person to ask?
