If you like him, your best bet is to stick around and really get to know him.
Pursue getting to know him in depth, not just the charm.
One month in, I asked him what he thought about being exclusive.
(We had sex on the first date, BTW, don’t know if that would make a huge difference.) We spend every weekend together and usually one night during the week and he calls or texts me everyday just to say hi.
In terms of him wanting to “take it slow” and dating other women, my comment is that he is doing what he wants to be doing at the moment. What I am saying here is that his life’s been going on for 42 years before meeting you and it seems like he’s decided that this is how he wants to have his relationships at this point in his life.
In the end, the guy realized that he was far more fulfilled with this woman than any other woman he had been seeing.
The woman was seeing another man as well at that time, but that guy couldn’t handle the idea of her being casually in a relationship with him so he broke it off.
There could be countless reasons why he feels this way, but frankly it’s not worth your time and energy trying to psychoanalyze him.
It sounds like you like him a lot on many levels and over time you’ll start to learn more about where he’s at.
