The experiences that you are having with him are having an emotional impact on you.
This doesn’t mean that he is experiencing the exact same emotions with the exact same amount of energy.

This far, you believe that all signs would point to an exclusive relationship.

You are better off being patient with him.
If this is a relatively new relationship, he is wise in being cautious.
