You want to schedule them back to back but you've seen enough sitcoms to know that's not a good idea. He probably even sees people I go out with going out with other people. I mean, I haven't met their friends yet so it's possible they all hang out together in some sort of sports league situation and next thing I know I'm showing up to one of their football games and realizing I'm dating the entire cast of 2. One last thing, for any non-closed relationship: Do NOT ever hide that you are seeing other people. It doesn’t matter how black and white you were about “never dating exclusively” in the beginning. So be aware and deal with feelings of confusion or jealousy openly. Candid communication is the bedrock of any successful long-term (open) relationship. This means you need to seriously assess if she is emotionally handling the “openness” well. It may go without saying, but you should be willing to let her see other guys.If you’re hiding something it means that you think it deserves to be hidden. News flash: one conversation 2 months in about the status of your relationship does not represent a binding contract. You’re probably going to have to work on your own jealousy, which is a whole ‘nother ball game.
But don’t close your eyes and let the relationship steer you. If you are seeing a girl 3 times a week and speaking everyday, things are getting more serious. Just don’t wind up in that situation because you are humoring her.Decide and manage the cadence of your relationship.A few general guidelines: Just hookups – Only contact her when you have something of importance to say or are planning to see her.The label to me was secondary to the actual reality of our interaction. Guy won’t let her go out, or if he does, won’t let her speak to anyone and freaks out if she does.If she can’t do anything new, the dude’s position at the center of her universe won’t be threatened.Great, now I have to find multiple destinations in completely different neighborhoods so I don't accidentally overlap and then have to have an awkward exchange in the middle of the street. I kind of like one of them, I do, but I also currently like boning multiple randos more. Making sure one hookup isn't leaving things at your place that another hookup could find later. Plus, isn't it better that I'm not committing to someone I'm not sure about than to commit too soon and still reminisce about rando boning? Aww, this love note you left on my pillow in the morning is completely cute but now I have to hide it in an old grocery bag I'll shove in my closet so the person I have coming over in an hour doesn't get offended by something they technically don't have any right to be offended by because it's only our third date. It is one thing for me to be dating multiple people, but I am supposed to be the most incredible person you have ever met, so much so that you cannot even fathom ever dating anyone else again as long as you live! When you're on a date with one person but thinking about another person. This guy has superior abs and is a better listener most of the time. Even if I double up on something, I can just pretend my phone sent the text twice. What if their roommate/friend you met sees you on a date with someone else? When you tell a story a bunch of times because you can't remember which one you already told it to. OK, I think I'm just gonna copy/paste text all three of them as much as possible. Especially when I'm seeing other people besides you in a romantic context, which I am absolutely doing right now. When you tell someone you just want to keep it casual for now and they think that just means you don't want to get married and have kids within the year. Rest in peace, that one time I dated like a baller. Plan on seeing her no more than once a week and usually only at night/the following morning. But you need to be damn clear that things ARE NOT exclusive and they ARE NOT moving towards exclusivity.Tell her you like that things are casual between the two of you and that you are happy there is no boyfriend/girlfriend expectation. A lot of girls think that after a period of time in an open relationship, you’ll come around. A girl can be crazy about you, but if her friends make her feel like shit for seeing you, you’re done.
