Cupid’s Advice:

Dating always has its ups and downs.  It can be heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time.  Even if you aren’t seeing multiple people, it is still important to explore other aspects of life.

1. Keep your options open: Especially at the beginning of a relationship, it’s important not to put all your eggs in one basket.  It may seem like the real thing, but it might be too soon to tell.  Therefore, there is no harm in continuing to see other people at beginning stages of dating.

2. Don’t be too available: If someone is too eager and willing to drop everything for someone else, it can be a huge turnoff.  Never go out of your way for someone who won’t do the same for you.

3. Be up front about it: If you’re going to pursue seeing multiple people at the same time, tell your partner from the beginning, and accept that they too can see other people.  It’s not right if one side is completely committed while the other is out on the town with someone different every night.  If one party starts getting jealous, then maybe it’s time to consider a committed relationship.

Whether you’re monogamous or dating multiple people, the key is to never be too available.  Relationships succeed when both people continue to have their own interests.
