Ericka Pittman and Lee Gause from Bravo's The Singles Project started calling each other a couple after just a few dates. What are your rules?

If you've been keeping up with Bravo's The Singles Project, then you've seen Ericka Pittman and Lee Gause hit it off, quickly. And on the last episode, things took a turn toward exclusivity. 

Last week, after having dinner with Ericka and her close friends, Lee let it slip that he may be falling in love with her. This led to the two having a conversation about only dating each other. And before taking a romantic trip to South Hampton, Ericka giddily referred to Lee as her boyfriend. Remember: This all happened after just two dates.
