Is dating multiple people at once okay
Swapping messages with multiple people is the nature of online dating, and is to be expected.
However, it can still come as a slap in the face to learn that someone you feel you’ve clicked with is messaging other people. If no actual relationship has begun, is it okay to meet for ‘dates’ with several people at once?
"Sophie used to go with one boy Friday, another Saturday, and another on Monday."My sister and I exchanged looks. (Although, I guess she broke for Sunday, so there was that.)I don't know if it's because of Cameron Crowe movies or disease panic or protracted adolescence, but my generation believed that when you really liked somebody, you should like them solely and exclusively, even obsessively. I know guys who date multiple women like they're filling out an elimination bracket, and I know guys who date multiple women because they get easily bored by one set of nipples.
If a guy gave you a mix CD of Radiohead songs because it felt like giving you "a pint of his own blood," and then he gave girl a pint of his own blood, it sort of cheapens the gesture. More and more people I know prefer dating a bunch of people to one; you can be suspended in a kind of single-but-not animation that used to be reserved for old bachelors of indeterminate sexual orientation, and not be considered a jerky health risk.
Some folk think a cheeky snog is no reason to climb off the dating merry-go-round.
Others believe that even chatting online with more than one person is disgracefully duplicitous. If we want to enjoy the benefits of 21st century dating without getting hurt, or hurting others, perhaps it’s time to agree on a few rules. First off, most Christians would agree that once hand-holding and sweet nothings have entered the equation, there should be no hedging your bets. Then don’t be surprised if the other person assumes you’re in a relationship, and is hurt and angry to learn otherwise.

And if you've got the kind of girl who reeeeeally isn't looking for exclusivity, she doesn't want you barfing your gross emotion germs all over her. I'm pretty sure that the bat and the pig that combined viruses to make The Contagion met on e Harmony and that I've had sex with them both.
