    If your dating someone and they suggested to you that they wanted to see other people in addition to seeing you. how would you react and why?  take in mind, this has nothing to do with me, but i was just curious to see what you all would say. big_smile

    That would depend on the individual relationship and if there was an expectation of commitment and monogammy. The relationships I have had up to this point in my life..I would be ok with seeing others and I would most likely be the one to suggest it.

    It simply means that there isn't enough of a connection to stimulate a full-time commitment to the relationship. It usually is based on honesty, trust or communication(lack of) or they could simply see the person just as a friend.

    That's my thoughts about it.

    i personally do not agree with it. i am a one woman man and if terry came to me and said that i would tell him just where he could go. open relationships remind me to much of cheating and that don't fly with me plus there are other things to worry about like diseases, pregnancy, stress, jealousy, and so much more. i just dont agree with the whole "i want to be with you but date other people too" thing

      i agree. my biggest fear would be what if the girl i was dating was seeing another guy that ended up making her happier than i could, which would lead her to seek a exclusive relationship with him.  that's why i would just break up with her if my gf said that to me.  not that i have one at the moment, but if i did, that's how i'd react.

    I only date/see one person at a time. I have lived by that rule and will continue to. If the relationship isn't working, then time to end that relationship and then move on.
    I remember friends and people I know as a younger person that would date more than one person at a time and (not all) but most of them ended up dating while married! Not good!
    I think it is a commitment issue.
