The last time I saw him, I asked him if we could define our relationship. I decided that everything was probably okay until yesterday when my brother went to a coffee shop and saw him with another girl.
In response, he started talking, but somehow didn’t really say anything, and I got the feeling he was probably seeing someone else. Everything was still so new between us, so I let the subject drop. I’m afraid to bring this up with him because the conversation didn’t go well the last time; he’s obviously not ready to be exclusive with me. My friend, you are an unwitting victim of the new culture that I call “the Tinder Revolution.” Although it’s always been possible to see more than one person at a time, technology – and Tinder, where one swipes right or left to meet or reject another – is just one app of many that has made it much easier for us to encounter, get-to-know, and “communicate” with multiple people simultaneously.
If you've met someone that makes everyone else you're going out with pale in comparison, you're probably considering how to negotiate the potentially awkward discussion of becoming exclusive with each other; in other words, a couple.
If this scares you, you probably haven't met the right person, because you should be happy and excited about this decision. You don't know for sure, and this is where your angst can enter, center-stage.
