Dating two or more people
And, let's face it, I'm not used to more than one girl liking me at a time.I'm able to manage multiple friendships, because it's important to me, so maybe if relationships are important enough, I can pull it off.I’ve also noticed that she’s happiest when she’s dating a couple of people at once.This has changed now that she has started seeing someone she really likes, but until recently, I encouraged her to keep seeing this other, duddier guy throughout, just so she wouldn’t concentrate all of her anxieties on one dude.So all of my guy friends and even most of my girl friends were telling me to hang out with both women.Essentially they advised me to "see other people."I've never been comfortable with the idea of "seeing other people."Here are pros and cons of seeing other people: Incomplete projects strewn around is a hallmark of the ADD-afflicted person's life. Considering I have trouble following through with one girl,how much trouble will I have following through and managing two different relationships?
In light of all this, I asked psychologist Irene Levine, clinical professor of psychiatry at New York University Langone School of Medicine, to demystify the allure of dating multiple people simultaneously, once and for all.
The next day, I found out that Nicole thought I was cute, and I was faced with a quandary...because Nicole was cute too.
To make matters worse, they were complete opposites: Pam was younger, just starting off in the work force, and Nicole was a bit older and she was a lawyer.
Despite knowing I should play the field more, I haven't been able to bring myself to do it. I could tell I liked her because I got into a good mood whenever she texted/talked to me.
While I was hanging out with Pam, I went to a party and met a friend of a friend named Nicole.
