Define dating exclusively
Ever been at a party or a function where someone is talking to you, but at the same time scanning the room looking for someone else to talk to? I can also date multiple people and still make the right choice. Dating multiple people has significantly disabled bachelors and bachelorettes from focusing on the people sitting right in front of them.
Studies show that too many options actually make it harder to choose.
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.
Not one minute of those two months was focused exclusively on you, a prerequisite to really evaluating taking a relationship to the next step.
But you really like him and don’t want to leave him because you think maybe tomorrow he will tell you that he wants to date you exclusively.
I just want to be, like, exclusively hooking up." The thing is, I'd never even asked my friends if they wanted to be in a relationship.
Because my friends' arguments are like this: "I swear I don't even want a relationship!
But I don't think that's most of my friends' main concern. They just want the person they're dating not to bang other people.Contrary to expectations, providing more varieties and flavors and choices of a product to consumers is not beneficial to people and does not lead to more sales. When we aren’t focusing on one person at a time, we can lose the most important “sale” of our life!
