The really funny thing about dating is that everyone seems so normal when you meet them. Then you get to know them and discover the things that make them unique and quirky…or a liiitttle crazy, deranged, or weird.
Mr. M is back today and he always asks the great questions. Check out what he has to say about what happens when things get dicey:
When we begin dating someone new, there are two sides to the story. There is the good, which entails the bliss, excitement for the possibilities, and the refreshing feeling that this may be the right dating situation we were looking for…then there is the BAD…the lingering feeling that we are getting to know this person but we don’t know them that well and we don’t know what we are getting into.
The question is when you are dating someone new and you see something questionable such as a racy text, or text picture from an ex, or someone in or around their life that you are curious, do you say something about it even though you two are not exclusive?
The truth is though you two are not exclusive, there is a ground level of respect that both parties should expect. Should we just not operate under that code and otherwise go with separate but equal? The issue will be eventually that someone will be able to dish it (getting all the miscellaneous attention, text, etc) but not take it (when the tables turn and the other party is getting all the attention, text, etc).
Should we just expect nothing from someone we are not exclusive with?
