I have been dating this guy for about 6 and a half weeks and I really like him. We usually see each other around 4 times a week, and we have been sexually active for a little over 2 weeks. I have discussed with him that I want to have a commitment, but his response has been that he got out of a really bad long term serious relationship a little under a year ago and ever since he hasn't been too excited about starting up a new one. We are four years apart in age, but we really connect emotionally, mentally, and sexually. After he said the stuff about not being ready to start up another relationship, he said he really cares about me. I asked him if he just needed time and he said yes. He takes me out all the time, and we spend a lot of time together. We've met each other's parents and neither of us live at home. He says he hasn't dated anyone else since we started having sex... Do you guys think it will be much longer until he decides to start a relationship? Am I missing something? Should I just be patient and go with the flow? The reason I post this is because I have had a lot of guys lead me on/ treat me really horribly in the past and I have trouble knowing whether to trust guys. I feel like I can trust him, but it just makes it so much harder when i know he is not ready to fully commit to me when I feel ready. I am willing to wait and I understand why he feels the way he does, I am just confused and want some advice at what you guys think I should do at this point.
