Playing the long game in a relationship isn't when 2 people have a goal to be together but the timing isn't always right. They might live far apart, have age differences, or be at different stages of their life. When playing the long game they agree to live their separate lives in hopes that eventually when timing is right, they'll be together in the end. They don't have to be exclusive but they also don't have to see other people. You make your own rules.
1. "I really like you but we're in different stages of our lives and the timing isn't right. I'm in it for the long game.."

2. "Long game?"
"Long game."
