    I have noticed that men seem to have no problem dating multiple women at one time. This is accepted by society far more than if a women dates multiple men.

    I know its possible for women to be in open relationships with men and not want more. However, I haven't seen to many women who are okay with dating a guy for a long period of time who doesn't want to get committed to her. Naturally women want to be with one man.

    So is it truly possible for women to date with no strings attached?

      it depends on the girl.  some women can, some rather would want to be with one guy.  same with guys.  however, if thats what your looking for, then all i can tell you is that as long as you let the guy know early on in the relationship that you want an open relationship where you can date other people while dating him.  otherwise, if you don't tell him, then it could lead to a lot of trouble.

      men and women usually play the field, it depends on what you say or do when you date

      One at a time is ok

      Remember dating is the first stage of a relationship...is a good way to know each others chracteristics..

      Sure it's possible, but it becomes more difficult over time when one or the other develops stronger feelings, and the green eyed monster of jealousy rears it's ugly head.

      From a man's point of view I have to say dating multiple women is challenging! The planning and coordination takes up much of your time particularly if you're trying to keep them all from knowing about the others, or if your relationships are open, you still need to keep them from crossing paths. It can be awkward!

        Amen to that.  You think it's hard to keep one woman happy (with everything outside of the bedroom), try doing that with multilpe women.  And then trying to keep them all separate is a whole other thing.  Even when they know about each other, there is still always a pissing match of jealousy when they run into each other.  Just to prove that one is better than the other. 
        There is way too much stress involved in that whole thing.

          I have to agree with the pissing match mostly and jealousy is wicked among women, cat fights should be avoided, but blood thanks, now I have to pee lol

          Totally agree. Its way too much work. So much is made of the male ego, however I find that women can be just as prone to jealousy.

      it depends on what that woman wants.  speaking for myself personally, i have never really wanted a committed relationship. if i meet the man i want to be exclusive with and he desires the same, then i'll be committed but not until then.

    It all depends on what you do on that date.

        and what can you do on a ... DATE?

        I mean, it's clear why you go on a date in the first place - you like someone.

    I generally choose not to date more than one person at a time, but that doesn't mean I am committed or even in what I would call a relationship with that person.  I've dated people that I knew were seeing other people, and was totally ok with it.  Dating in those cases was a bit of fun for a lonely girl, and not meant to get serious, because I wasn't ready to be serious.

    When I'm dating someone, I usually don't allow myself to be open to dating others. But that's just me, and I've been in relationships of many varying degrees of seriousness. I've dated women whom I've had not very much interest in who have gotten attached to me far too quickly and I've dated women whom I've gotten very serious with after getting the whole 'let's make sure we don't get serious lecture'. All in all, being romantically involved with more than one woman at a time is a little too awkward for me, considering my brutally honest nature.

        I've been there too.  I've been with a few that started out as chics that were a blast to be around and have fun with, but then after I got to know them and know more about who they really were, I started developing feelings for them.

    It depends what you want out of the relationship.  Women in general are natural nurturers and want to keep people close to them.  However there are exceptions to every rule!  If you make clear up front what the expectations are (just dating)  then there should be little problems

    I guess a lot depends on the woman.  I've have some really wild and fun times with women that I've loved as friends, but that was it.  Then I've gone out with women that I knew right off the bat that I wanted more from than just a casual fling.

      I think that's the key - knowing what the others intentions are right away then make your own call - strings still break though - I hate that lol

    Friends with no strings use rope and bond as friends and play as lovers - ideal situation. big_smile

    dating without sex - It's possible for both men and women because this is the stage of getting to know each other and developing a stronger relationship.

    dating with sex - Women will be at the most disadvantage side when they start to expect commitment from men because feelings started to develop.

    However, it will still depend on women if she wants to date multiple men with no strings attached in their relationship.  You only have to be prepared for whatever consequences that might happen.
