You are still your own person and you don’t have to be acting like you owe him anything. You shouldn’t have to be bending over backward for a man who hasn’t solidified his commitment to you. He’s only going to see you as needy and pathetic.

Sometimes, you run the risk of scaring a man away by putting so much pressure on him. So, if he still thinks that your arrangement is a casual one, then act casually for now. Let him ease into the idea of committing to you. For the meantime, keep your options open and see what’s out there for you.
