It does not take long before couples who are seeing each other become exclusive, provided that as they continue to get to know each other better they realize that they are compatible.
Since the term "seeing someone" provides a sense of exclusivity already, it only takes one conversation between the couple to determine whether or not they are going to begin an exclusive relationship.

There’s nothing worse than being a relationship with someone—and you realize you define the relationship differently.You think you’re exclusive, then realize he/she is still swiping right on Hinge and Tinder.Whether you’re falling for them or not, this person crosses your mind more than anyone else (or is at least in the top three).Yes, when we're in the new-to-dating-again scene, we love to complain to our friends about our dates or people we're dating.It's a confusing time in dating, where social media and technology (texts and Facebook messages) have overtaken good old-fashioned courting and wooing someone over.
Now, all your date has to do is show up on time, as promised, and he or she wins points (versus making a dinner reservation or actually coming up with a plan for a date). That’s right, now you find yourself with this person a LOT, like 24/7.The term "seeing someone" also has a very strong physical component.Couples who are seeing each other are typically involved physically, which is the cause for their desire to let others know that they are not interested in dating anyone else at the moment.According to this New York Times article, many millennials “hang out” versus go on traditional dates. And, if you spend that much time together, it only makes sense to define the relationship.Of online dating and single people in their 20s, Branding Coordinator Joshua Sky in New York said: Check out Bustle's 'Save The Date' and other videos on Facebook and the Bustle app across Apple TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV. You can actually date someone in hopes of having a future with them, not just because it’s convenient or you’re lonely on a Friday night. Yes, I know, maybe you just have a friend whom you do everything with and it’s not a dating thing, but if this is someone you are dating and everyone else is questioning your status, you should be, too.The term "seeing someone" can be quite baffling, not only to the friends and families of the people who are seeing each other, but also to the couple themselves.
