I searched but couldn't find much information on this subject... What kind of tactics should be employed to turn a casual sex partner into something more serious?
I've been seeing this girl for the last month, we were getting very close (met her parents, got massive indicators she wanted a relationship and of course sex) and then she goes cold turkey on me for a week. We met up yesterday for some lunch and ended up coming back to mine where we had sex, after which I asked her where she sees our relationship going. She said that she is scared of being "enclosed" in a relationship at the moment and stressing about her upcoming university exams, but enjoys spending time with me. She also likes the fact I don't just want sex out of her. She said she'd like to just keep our relationship casual as it is now. I asked her how she'd feel if she saw me dating another girl and she said that she would feel a bit sad but she would be okay. I'm not sure how I'd feel if she did the same though.
Now I'd really like to turn this into more of an exclusive relationship as I've started to get feelings for her and I'm looking for more than sex at the moment.
Has anyone else been in a similar situation and can give me a bit of advice on how to go about turning this relationship into something more serious? I know most guys would love to be in this situation!
