Dating: exclusive or bf/gf

Last week my guy had a huge go at me for finding me on tinder- was only on there to find him (and he was on there just to find me). At this point we were seeing each other exclusively for 2 months. We spoke on Tuesday and we resolved it.

He said: do you actually want to date me- even though your going away for 3 weeks to Europe.

I said yes.

He said okay and asked again 20 min later and then said well I want to date you too.

We are obviously exclusive and just want to see each other. But does this mean we are bf/gf he’s never had one before and I don’t know if he assumes that was the way to ask or whether dating isn’t bf/gf 😂 thoughts...
