    Hi everyone,

    I'm completely NEW to dating. Never dated anyone in my life. So i download Tinder, get talking to a nice guy and add him on fb. Find out he's sleeping with other girls. Kind of shocked me but yeno I don't know the ways. So what normallly happens? (for guys) do they sleep with a bunch of girls then eventually filter them down to one or something? And what does it mean when people say 'I'm seeing ___'? I'm really clueless....

    Thanks

    "Seeing someone" just means that you're dating someone and are interested in them but aren't serious enough to be in an actual relationship, it's casual and basically means someone can date multiple people at the same time

    Seeing someone is seeing a friend.
    Dating is going out on a regular basis with an even closer friend who could be a life partner if all works out.

    1. Tinder is an app which is notorious for people who are just looking to sleep with other people.

    2. People lie especially if they want sex.

    3. Early interactions means they are free to talk to other people because there is no agreement.

    4.You are free to date or see other people until you agree with the other person its mutually exclusive i.e serious enough that you will only see them. That's the beginning of proper dating. Some people prefer casual dating (open to see multiple people) until they get to this stage others prefer one at a time.

    5. You can choose to date someone who only dates one person at a time, even casually. That is entirely your choice. If you sleep with them before they are mutually exclusive and have been checked then use protection and think you are being exposed to any sexual diseases her or the unknowns he is sleeping with have.
