Is it really normal to date multiple people at the same time?Watch
Also, when (after how long/ how many dates) does it become inappropriate to speak to other people/ continue to look on dating apps? I was messaging a guy for almost 2 months and met up once. Then I turned on another app out of curiosity to see If he was on there, and I found him - was pretty painful tbh
It’s probably pretty normal to be going on multiple dates, weighing up who you like best, keeping others on back burner and generally treating people like you wouldn’t want to be treated yourself. I suspect guys suffer most. This is the main reason why internet dating is terrible.
Dating is just dating...planned eat and greets with a friend or romantic interest. The problem here is people take first dates further...and bring sex in right away, and think sex means relationship, thus complicating what dating is. However if you wanna date and **** multiple people, have at it. Not my lifestyle. But you're ****ing entitled.
Oi don't call me stupid haha. Its the only way I can speak to /meet guys - I have no social life so highly unlikely I'll meet anyone at a party/ through a friend etc. I've tried 2 apps but I've now pretty much given up.
Although internet dating is not the best way to meet others. And in principle, with dating you can't really learn anything about the other person. You can only get first impressions. But first impressions are most times deceiving.
If you've asked them if you're 'going out' and they've said yes, then they shouldn't still be on dating apps/seeing others. Two months is enough time to make up your mind.
In my opinion, If you're only talking, or having a laugh in a friendly way, it's fine to do talk to multiple people. But as soon as the relationship goes into the dating /serious talk category there shouldn't be more than one person.
I don't blame you for being hurt. I probably would be aswell.
i think the best approach is to speak about when you and the other person stop seeing other ppl. it can be brought up casually and it's not a massive "ermagawd we're in a relationship now???" thing. but yeah if someone hasnt spoken to you about it and is then popping up on dating apps and sleeping around thats such a red flag. it's insensitive and risky and shows a complete lack of regard for your feelings. you're being misled and used as a backup. kinda ****ed.
