You should both be in a place where you are on a reciprocated page with how you are feeling about each other. Yes, even in the early stages! When a new relationship is going in the right direction you don’t have to ask the questions, “Are they really interested in me?” “Where is this going?” or “Are we exclusive with each other?” If you have to ask, it is probably time to move on from them.
You have the right to know where you stand after being in a committed partnership for over 1 year together. In fact, you should know by now!
