Sometimes in dating, when it rains, it pours.
You know the deal. One minute you’re extremely single and the next, you’ve got a date for every day of the week. But is it okay to juggle multiple admirers at one time? “According to Him + Her” is weighing in.
Rule 27 insists that simultaneously dating multiple people is okay, and we would have to agree. In short, there is nothing wrong with weighing your options before making a more serious commitment. That’s, of course, the point of dating.
When you’re on the market for a potential partner, it would be in your best interest to date around to find what makes you happy. Singles have the luxury of coming and going as they please and are not obligated to lead a monogamous lifestyle.
Being an active dater is much like being in an ice cream shop, in which you get a little taste before you buy. Before you get a double scoop of Rocky Road or Butter Pecan, you have to make sure you don’t want Strawberries and Cream or Rum Raisin.
To be clear, this does not apply to established relationships. When you make the decision to be with one person, you should be committed to that one person. It’s a matter of trust and respect. If for whatever reason you feel as if you’re no longer connected, it might be time to part ways. There’s no such thing as dating in relationships—that’s called cheating.
But for all you singles, have fun. Be safe. And may the odds be ever in your favor.
