    Nah I mean in a more sort of serious way.

    You mentioned that he doesn't want the relationship to become more serious just yet, so he's got reservations about where this is heading. The facebook thing will probably change when he's more secure about the idea of being with you.

    At least it makes sense in my mind. There's little point putting up the Single to Taken, only to take it down in 3 months time if things don't work out and have everyone questioning him about it.
    I get what you mean. It's just silly, because we're not single and people know that, but it feels like we're hiding it! Just had a crazy thought.. The people that actually matter (my friends, his friends, our parents) know that we're in a relationship already. Changing statuses would only let everyone else (ie, the ones who don't matter) know. This makes sense now. I'm an idiot.

    I have a solution, just going to hide my status so that way I'm not 'single' but those who I'm close to know what it is. Thanks for the response, made me think there!

    I don't think he's ready, it's only been 2 months and like you said it's nothing "serious". I don't see the point of putting your status down all together, on fb there is an option to leave it blank. Why can't you do that instead?
    You said you intiated the chat about becoming exclusive but did you pressure him by any change? Like using leading questions to approach the topic? he could of just said okay to please you.
    The fact that he said he'll change it not now, not tomorrow but in the FUTURE implies he wants to wait (a couple of months), because he isn't ready.

    Look just don't OP. A girly mate of mine wouldn't do it for her bf that she didn't really like very much and ended up dumping. Forcing him to change it won't do anything - either he'll just find you even more clingy or he'll want to dump you quicker. If he's going to stay with you he will anyway ok.. trust me don't force the issue...
