After you start talking to someone new, you might naturally start to wonder where exactly you stand with them. Do they like you as much as you like them? Are things actually getting serious? And probably the most anxiety-producing question: Are you exclusive? Don't freak. It's totally normal to have questions when you've started dating someone new and feelings are getting involved. Fortunately, there are some signs you’re basically exclusive but haven’t had the talk yet that you can be on the lookout for if you're doubting your relationship status. However, if you've been wondering about the official status of a relationship, it's important to emphasize that the only way to know for sure is to have "the talk."
