How soon is too soon to start feeling restless in relationship?
May 25, 2011 2:00 PM Subscribe
Should I be concerned that my SO is already scared of feeling "trapped" because of our long-term/forever potential after 2-3ish months of dating (and 7 of close friendship)? He mentioned noticing other women more than normal and equates it to feeling scared of eternal monogamy. Is this a giant red flag? Or am I picking a fight with someone willing to be honest with me about his feelings? Or both?
More details inside.
(anon because he and mutual friends are aware of MeFi handle)

I recently ended a 5 year relationship
We are both in our mid-to-late 20s
He has been in previous LTRs
He seems to generally be the one driving the serious nature of the relationship: saying ILY first (and soon!), asking for a move-in (and me not accepting because I dont feel ready), generally talking about the future and our lives together in it
