This is the good one though, how could guys not like this talk?

The "Exclusive talk" means you want them, and only them!

It really depends on how into you the Guy is, and how the relationship has progressed. Not really something you want to bring up too soon, but it sounds like this has been long enough for you. :)

The other talks, well... "Let's just be friends talk" or the "Just not into you talk" or the "I'm dating your sibling talk", those are the ones that can be scary!

It doesn't much matter who brings it up, either he wants it or he doesn't

what worked for me is saying "I dont want to share you with anyone", he said it was mutual.
That way you dont have to say "ok lets have a seat, we need to talk".

It has to happen.

Its best to get it out of the way as soon as EITHER of you are thinking about becoming serious.

At least thats the way that I feel about it.

Is ANYONE comfortable with this? I feel like I'm about to get lectured.

This is a tough question.

For me, I like to date this way:

First Date Period (FDP): This is the "interview"/getting to know a person time. To me, this starts from the first time you say "Hello, my name is..." I might be meeting multple people at once, but it doesn't mean I am interested in a relationship with them, all my friends are sort of in this "category" to me (men and women). The type of things I'll do with people in FDP are like go to a movie, go dancing, drink, and play pool. It isn't intimate, it is more casual and friendly. If I am in FDP with a girl I am considering having a relationship with, I might make it a little romantic/intimate but the main focus of this time is to get to know a person so I can decide how I feel about them.

Romantic Dating Period (RDP): This is after the first date period so you know the person. This is the time I would like to become exclusive. I won't be in this period with more than 1 person at a time. While I might still be meeting people, but like I said FDP isn't romantic in any way really. For me, I like DRP to be exclusive just because this seems liek the first real emotional investment.

Relationship: RDP evolves into this.
