Hi all, it’s been a moment…so let’s get caught up. Let’s chat about relationship options. Well guys you do this all the time, and there is no mention of it. I’m guilty of doing the same from time to time. That’s right….I’m talking about dating more than one person at the same time.
Why do we date multiple people at the same time ? Is it because we don’t know what we want ? Is it because we don’t want to get seriously attached to one person ? Is it because we were hurt in a previous relationship, and we always want to have a backup plan ?
Research has indicated that it means you simply are unavailable emotionally.
Hmmm, I guess I can agree with that. Unfortunately, we can’t take the personality from one person, and the class and etiquette from another, and switch body parts for the ideal mate. LOL. That’s asking for too much.
So, what do you do ?
1. Practice Honesty
Honesty can turn a casual relationship into a life long friendship. Honesty also keeps things in order. All parties know exactly where they stand.
2 What’s the Benefit
Every relationship should have a benefit that stretches beyond sexual gratification. Is there a benefit to grow or learn? Time is not refundable.
3. Know the Exit Date
All casual relationships should evolve to a solid friendship, a solid relationship, or expire. Lingering casual relationship can turn into a lost of years, and time.
Which brings me to the next question. What’s your expiration date on a casual dating relationship?
