Girls are not very direct when they speak. They like to beat around the bush instead of coming right out and saying things. So, it is not likely that she will just directly ask you if you want to be exclusive with her.
Instead, she might say things like, “Do you think that everyone wants a committed relationship?” Or “What do you think of casual relationships? Do you prefer them?”
This is her way of hinting around to try to get a feeling for your thoughts on exclusivity. By de-personalizing it, she is safe. Because if your responses hint at the fact that you don’t want to only date her, then her ego will be a spared because she was indirect.

It could be assumed that neither of you are dating anyone else. But unless it is specifically talked about, there is no definitive answer either way. She is probably wondering where you stand, so she might ask this question.
Even thought his seems like a direct question, it’s really asking you, “Do you only want to date me?” Asking if your seeing or sleeping with anyone else is way to seem easy-breezy about the whole thing. She doesn’t want you to know that she cares too much.
Another one of the signs that she wants to be exclusive with you is that in conversations with her, she will throw out things like, “Omg, I told Katie that you are so funny!” or “Jemma just asked me what you’re doing for New Year’s Eve. She wanted to know if we wanted to hang out with her and her boyfriend.”

When a girl doesn’t like you that much, she will not spend much energy on you. In other words, she may not initiate texts or calls very much. Why? Well, it could be for a variety of reasons.
First, you may not be on her mind very much. Second, she might be talking with other guys too. So, if you hear from her a lot, then there is a good chance she is thinking about being exclusive with you. Talking to you a lot leaves her a lot less time to talk to or date anyone else.

In today’s day and age, it’s common to define the relationship. Decades ago, this was not needed. But with technology and social media, a person could be talking to endless people at the same time.
