Oh wow, a friend sent me a quote few days ago similar to this...and its so true... dont know if it answers any questions,

"You should never make someone a priority, when you are only an option."

One clue that you are an option is that they don't contact you on a regular basis.If you are priority,you are the first person they contact,even if it isn't important.

Good question!
I think everyone feels there are "options" when they first enter into a relationship. The key is how quickly this status changes.
If after a few dates, you feel like you are still only an option...it is time to clear the air and ask. Communication is a great thing!
Of course they may lie....but you will know soon enough.
It is a tricky slope....but communication and not guessing is best.

I think that one's definition of Option vs. Priority is subjective to how quickly one feels towards how a relationship should develop. The problem is that the mind usually gives way to how the heart reacts. So if you think that a relationship should develop slowly and you find yourself having feelings that are growing more intense by the day and the person on the other end of the relationship is still deciding whether or not to see you exclusively while dating others, you could make them feel like a priority but they may just view you as only an option in the meantime.

I feel like I just wrote a book. Whew.

Oh sure, speaking of options is subjective, very subjective indeed.

I've dated women who never had "Priority" in their mind when dating, whatsoever!

A woman who schedules several dates per day has no priorities in my personal and humble opinion.

On the other hand, a woman who only "schedules" dates with you "exclusively" is more open to the options she has on her priorities.
