You're dating exclusively, and you have been for a while. Perhaps you've both said the "L" word. Now may be a good time to talk about what you both want out of this relationship. When you become more serious with your boyfriend or girlfriend, take time to talk about your expectations for the relationship and its future. This will help you both stay on the same page and eliminate some rather unpleasant surprises. Talking regularly will bring you both closer together, strengthen your communication skills and hopefully make a good relationship even better.
