How do you feel about dating multiple people, or dating someone who is dating other people? I remember last year I messaged a woman on POF, telling her that I thought we looked like a great match. She replied saying that she agreed but that she had just struck up a conversation with another guy and they were getting on really well. WTF? That's far too early on to restrict yourself to just one person! And this year I had a date arranged several weeks into the future with a woman, but just a couple of days before the date she cancelled because she had started dating someone else. But even then I still thought it seemed too early to close off all your options. Why not go on a few dates with both of us and see who you like best? Of course, if long-term your idea of maximum romantic happiness is to be in a relationship with just one person, there will come a point in the dating process where you will need to make that decision. But why make that decision so early on? This is on my mind because of someone I have been chatting to recently on POF. On her profile it says that she spends her time divided between two different cities, and she's happy to meet people in either city. One of those cities is a lot closer to me than the other one. So then that gets me thinking, if this is the way her schedule is most of the time, maybe she could date two guys, one in each city? Maybe she could date me when she's in the city near me, then date another guy when she's in the other city. And I could find another woman to date while she's away. After all, life is short, why not squeeze the most out of it? I've not said any of this to her, but it's just been going though my head. And it's not even an actual plan, it's just ideas that have been going through my head.
