Who is dating
But, what if the person you’re seeing is dating other people at the same time?
Maybe you don’t mind, or maybe it makes you wonder if they’re taking things seriously. Do you focus on each prospect before deciding they’re not right, or do you always have one eye on the rest of the field?
But, if you find yourself hoping that he or she stops seeing other people so that you can introduce them as your ‘partner’ at work parties, then you need a wake-up call.
One of the great things about online dating is the way it allows you to meet a huge array of people you would never normally have met. Assuming your match has been honest with you from the start then they having nothing to answer for.
In the early stages of meeting someone, it’s perfectly acceptable – some might even say smart – to continue seeing other people, as long as you’re honest. If they’ve always made it clear they’re seeing other people then the rest of it is down to how comfortable you are with that arrangement.
However, if your match drops it into conversation a month in, or you found out through a third party, then it might be time to reconsider whether this is the kind of person you want to be dating.
Sure, they didn’t have to tell you, but honesty is the best policy in these situations.
If you’re ‘dating’ chances are you could be planning to meet up with multiple people.
There comes a point in every relationship where exclusivity needs to be talked about, and if your date still feels the need to see other people down the line, then they’re clearly not feeling what they should be. Are you in it just for fun, or are you starting to think seriously about the other person?If you’re happy to just have fun nights out chatting over dinner or dancing until the small hours after one too cocktails, then fine, just keep doing your thing.After all, they had nothing to lose by telling you from the off, so either they’re a coward or just a straight up liar. It might seem that up to this point we’ve been condoning dating around, and to some extent we do – it’s a great, efficient way to meet lots of new people on your search for ‘the one’.But if you’ve been dating for more than a couple of months and you know your partner is still seeing other people then it’s time to lay your cards on the table.
We’ve put together 5 essential questions to ask yourself, to find out if you really should be dating someone who’s seeing other people. Maybe you’re actively dating other people, and if this is the case then as long as you’re all honest with each other, then there should be no real issues.
However if you’re focusing all your energies into this one person, but they’re dating around, you might be in for a disappointment.
