I have been dating a guy for 6 weeks now and we have both agreed

Customer Question

I have been dating a guy for 6 weeks now and we have both agreed that things are going very well. We have both said that we are not dating anyone else, but recently he said that he doesn't want to rule out that possibility just so that he can be sure about our relationship. I am hurt by that. We have been intimately involve and the thought of him dating other girls and dividing his rare free time with them hurts my feelings. Last night (saturday night) I asked if he wanted to do something an he said he had plans to go to his parents for dinner. I had a feeling that wasn't true so I drove past his parents house and he wasnt there. So now I wonder if he's lying. Should I confront him or just back off and see if he initiates seeing me to see if he truly wants to spend time with me? I just don't know if I can expect him to be exclusive with me after 6 weeks, but I have said that I don't have the desire to date anyone else because I want to devote my time and energy to our developing relationship to see if it's going to work. I think I deserve the same in return. How do I proceed since I have feelings for him?
