When Is It OK To Date Other People?

It was Saturday morning around 10 and I just walked in the door to the phone ringing.  I frantically look for one of my portable phones that are always lost, trying to follow the sound of the ring.  Yes, I locate one and see Dave's number on the screen.  I answer the phone with a very cheery voice, only to have it squashed within the first 30 seconds of our conversation.

Dave quickly states he is just phoning to cancel our date.  He saw me out with another guy and it made him look stupid in front of his friends.  He wasn't going to get played like that from a girl like me.

Wow.  Since when was I in an exclusive relationship?  I thought that you dated people first to see if a connection exists before making a commitment.  I really don't think I did anything wrong, despite the way Dave tried to make me feel.  I wasn't being a big slut, I was simply going out on a few dates trying to find somebody I am compatible with.

Now it looks like the only date I have tonight is with my PVR'd shows, a bag of doritos and a tub of Ben and Jerry's (maybe some cadbury's mint chocolate too 😉 ).

LOL, that is pretty much exactly what my girlfriend said to me (minus the word dick). I obviously didn't think it was a big deal, but it looks like I was wrong. Is it ever ok at date more than one person at a time?

no way, more than one person at a time leads to someone getting hurt

I'd say it's not. I mean, perhaps you don't really take on the "boyfriend/girlfriend" title immediately, but some people take dates to heart. When you agree to go on a date with someone, you're giving that specific person a chance, and thus you should follow through with that specific person until there's a mutual decision to either cut off the relationship or pursue the dating status.

Yes. That's called dating. Not being in a relationship.
