How long before you commit to being exclusive in a relationship?

I just moved to NYC and am kind of new to the whole dating scene, and admittedly to dating in general (there weren't a lot of options back home). I met a guy online (through OKCupid) and we've gone on a number of dates, and we've been seeing each other for about 2 months now. At the same time, we're still both on the site, and I'm continuing to get messages from and arrange dates with other guys, and I'm assuming he's doing the same. I like this guy a lot and have fun when we're together, but I don't know if we've reached a point where I'm ready to commit to being exclusive with him and taking myself off the market, so to speak, and we haven't talked about it yet (FYI, neither of us is interested in an open relationship). I'm guessing there isn't a hard and fast rule for when you reach that point, and it'll be different for everyone, but it'd be helpful to hear other people's experiences about when you decided to stop dating around and be exclusive with your partner - any advice appreciated. Thanks!

"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
