This is thanks, in part, to your excellent comments and questions from the audience.
As such, some of the comments (which I have preserved) bring up points that I have since addressed in this revision.
It’s often a mistake to fixate on the reason he says he doesn’t want a relationship.
Right off the top, you mentioned that you and he have agreed to be exclusive.
It’s reasonable to interpret that as meaning you’ve agreed to not date anyone or sleep with anyone else, but I want to ask: when you agreed to be exclusive, how did this come about?
How clear was his side of the agreement to being committed?
I am asking because I don’t know if this agreement is assumed on your part or if he explicitly said, “Yes, you and I are exclusive…” or, better yet, “I want to be exclusive with you.” I’ll explain why I bring that up in a moment, but at any rate I agree with you that checking his dating profile seems out of step with having an exclusive relationship with you…
Can also be one with 3 players: one provides directions and both other players do their own dialogs. Making someone else `think about something` is hard to play, and not very active.
