Sounds like whether he asked you to "be with him" or not, he didn't intend to take himself off the market. Did you discuss being exclusive, or did you just take it for granted that this is what asking you to be with him means? I also don't get him only wanting to see you on weekends. You might not be being "played," but it also doesn't sound like he plans to settle down with you.
"Change his status"? Is this something on the dating app or on Facebook or something else?
My concern for him staying on the dating app is that he likes you, but is going to continue to see what's out there in case there's "someone better". Like you said, he can screen shot his convos with you, or he could go inactive, but keep the profile there, and save the messages, right?
I'd worry less about the whole status thing (maybe because I'm not sure what it is) and more about being a rebound person. It's moving really fast, which is typical of rebounds. Your gut is telling you to slow it down and that this is a lot really early in the relationship, and everything else aside, you need to listen to that.
It doesn't matter who's right or wrong here - just that maybe you all maybe aren't right for each other, at least right now.
Forget about social media. Completely. Social media is not "real life," and no one should feel obligated to announce personal life events to an audience that usually consists of family, close friends, people you barely know, and people you don't know at all.
To be honest, if I were in a relationship with anyone who pressured me, even a little bit, to change my relationship status on social media, I would end the relationship immediately, because I would realize that person's priorities are in the wrong place, and that every trivial detail during the relationship (and social media really is trivial) could be grounds for an argument. Very few people want to voluntarily face that kind of stress in life.
Hi! Welcome. I'm one of those people that thinks solid relationships build over time. When I've jumped in quickly, it feels amazing but often doesn't have foundation. It crumbles easily. You simply can not skip the steps in developing true intimacy. I'd want you to keep your profile and just have it inactive and he should keep his, leaving it inactive. You don't have a full relationship that you know will go the distance yet. You really are still getting to know each other.
I would encourage both of you to slow down. Enjoy each other and savor the process of getting close. And it is a process. When you both say "ya, let's delete the darn profile", it will be meaningful, right? More than if you just do it now before you really know where this is going. I know you think you probably know where it is going and it may go there . . . but it is early.
I also think announcing on social media is something you don't just do right away either. Let it build. And hey, keep in mind that the second a guy gets a serious girlfriend, old "friends' can come out of the woodwork finding him that much more attractive. So, just wait until it all feels right for both of you and try not to put the cart before the horse yourself. good luck
