Dating a practical guy
It was pretty obvious that there was an attraction between us, but I was a senior and she was a sophomore.
I knew that I’d be heading off to college soon, and I wasn’t quite sure how I felt about a long-distance relationship. Instead, Rebecca and I began a confusing three-year cycle of relationship ambiguity.
So you hang in there with anxiety and hope while another month goes by.
At worst, you are setting yourself up for heartbreak, getting attached to a person who refuses to focus on you. While he’s out with you having coffee, his mind could be on the dinner he had with her last night. I know many people think, It’s okay if he’s dating others besides me.
It’s why so many of us work hard, dress to impress, and buy possessions that display our financial status.
The thing is, overspending doesn’t always get you the outcome you desire.
But here’s the thing: We have so much fun together. My best friend tells me to relax – this is just how dating is. I’m going nuts thinking about him dating other girls. However, despite the apparent benefits, the Tinder Revolution often leaves us feeling less self-confident, confused, frustrated, and empty. Everybody wants to feel special and to be treated with love and respect.
She says it’s 100% normal for us to both date multiple people at once until we decide together to make the relationship exclusive. Agreeing to date someone while he or she dates other people signals that it is somehow acceptable not to respect or value you.
