The hardest lessons learned about dating can really bruise one’s ego. It happens to most of us, unfortunately, at one time or another. The reason it is important to know where things stand is to prevent any miscommunication. This is really important when it comes to your competition. Never assume you don’t have any.
My friend Linda was seeing a guy and they seemed to spending a lot of their free time together. It wasn’t until she wanted to attend a concert with him that she found out he already had plans to go with someone else. She seemed shocked and hurt that there was another woman in the picture. She figured since they got along so great on their first few dates, he was only seeing her.
Dating lesson: Never assume anything. She can be disappointed he is splitting his time, but honestly, she should have been doing the same thing. Unless you both are in agreement that things are exclusive, it is probably best to keep things casual. The thing is, many women don’t do casual dating well. Actually, I know some men that aren’t great at casual, either.
What does casual dating mean to you? If you are seeing someone new that you really like, how long before you stop pursuing other romantic interests?
