I went on a date with this guy and it went great. But at the end he told me he had recently became exclusive with another girl. He asked me to wait for their relationship to end, as the girl is leaving the country and they are going to break up. And that we can start seeing each other again in a month or so.

I’m not sure how to feel about this. I’m starting to resent him slightly for putting me in this situation. He was very upfront that he likes me and that he won’t be able to be friends with me. Should i wait for him?

Are you being serious? Either get some self-respect or stop trolling.

He is currently dating someone he has no interest in and has not broken up with her.. Do you really want to be with someone who acts like that in relationships?

To be fair, that is correct. We hardly know each other.
And this isn’t the best basis to start a relationship with me. I’m just confused as to how this happened. At least he’s told me and not kept me around.

He does have an interest in her. Thats why he’s with her. He said himself that he’s confused as to how he can like two people at the same time. He is with her, but there is a end date to their relationship. And he wants that relationship to end before he explores things with me. Boys are so stupid. Its like he wants everything, will i sit around waiting with nothing.

Boys are not stupid, there are plenty of genuine men out there that wont play with your time and emotions. Dont put up with ones that do.

And yeah you are right, i need a bit more self respect. But at first the situation didn’t seem so bad in my head. Now when i think about it, i just feel stupid. I feel like I deserve better than this. Should i just leave this alone until after Christmas and when he contacts me again i’ll deal with it. I might feel differently then. Or should i talk to him about it now.

You might be onto something there. I guess i thought that he would be more mature since he’s 4 years older than me. And he is, in some aspects. I’m not sure what i’m saying anymore haha

so he went on a date with you after becoming exclusive with someone else?
Can you see yourself liking his definition of exclusive in a future you-him relationship?

I wouldn’t. If he cared at all about this being anything real then he would be breaking up with this other girl and putting you first. He’s not. He’s letting you hang around waiting whilst he enjoys the last month with her. Not worth your time.

I had the same experience with a guy I met online. He told me he was going to his holiday home in Spain for a while, and would I wait for him as I was the only person he was interested in. This turned out to be a lie and eventually I called him out on it. It turned out he was never interested in me at all, and just enjoyed the attention. This guy could still be seeing the other girl behind your back as well. If he wants you, he will make sure he is with you.

Sling him in the bin and wait until you meet someone who is worth your while.

Are you on drugs? Sorry, but this guy is just a straight up tosser. If you have any self-worth you should cut things off, he can do this to you now (Put you on hold until a current relationship burns out), what makes you think he won't do this to you if/when you get together with him?

Also, don't let age fool you, age is by no stretch of the imagination a good measure of maturity. They have a job, a car, or maybe a mortgage? Wow, a large percentile of people over the age of 18 have these things, with the rest having access to them. His actions alone with you have demonstrated an infantile mentality, thinking he can have the whole cake so to speak, while you wait in the backlines?

I personally would have cut the conversation and any contact with this person the moment they brought this topic up.
