Why it's absolutely OK to date 2 people at once
I started casually dating a guy about two months ago. We've been on half a dozen dates, and I like him. We're very sexually compatible (haven't slept together yet but have done everything but), but I'm still not 100 percent sure if there's anything long-term in our future. Last week, a friend of a friend and I hooked up at a party, and now he's asking me out on a date, and I'd like to go out with him to find out if we're compatible. So now I find myself dating and hooking up with two men simultaneously. This is the first time I've done this, and I feel like it's a bit awkward. Is it totally OK to do this? Do I need to tell the guy I've been seeing longer about this new man? How do I handle this without it winding up like a really awful romantic comedy where I book two dates on one night?
