There’s no right answer here, the point is to get clear on exactly what it is you want. While figuring out what kind of relationship you want it’s also important to figure out why you want that type of relationship. Or do you tell yourself that’s what you want because it’s what society/your family/your friends tell you to have?
Is casually hooking up with random women truly how you want to spend your time?
You may think no one has ever made you feel like this and you can’t help but be amazed at the chemistry, or electricity between you and this new love. But sadly those involved don’t take the time to get to know each other before jumping into something serious.
Important: make sure you let them know they don’t have to make a decision then and there.
There's no moral reason why two people can't love each other while having physical and/or emotional relationships with other people. I also think it's rare to find a partner who shares the exact same ideology on open dating as you.
Life doesn’t always work out according to plan, and the same goes for relationships.
Step 1: Understand that it’s okay to change your mind.
We need to keep telling ourselves the basic truths of a healthy and truly loving relationship. While you spend time getting to know someone as a friend, you are able to see more clearly whether they are right for you and you for them.
Just because you want more doesn’t necessarily mean that they’ll want the same, and you’re taking a risk by letting them know this. Could you handle rejection if they don’t want the same things? Step 2: Before you even think about letting the words out of your mouth, you need to do some internal reflection – work out what you actually want from this relationship, and why. Step 3: Avoid dragging things out and let your date know your feelings as soon as possible – it’s an uncomfortable conversation, but putting it off will only leave your feelings hanging in limbo, and they’ll probably have a sneaking suspicion that something is a little off.
It is characterized by urgency, intensity, sexual desire, and or anxiety, in which there is an extreme absorption in another.
The truth is, this feeling of urgency and intensity or strong attraction toward another person is not necessarily a reliable indicator of whether you are in love or should immediately dive into a serious dating relationship.
I'm not the most vanilla person on Earth, but I certainly cannot share my love with another person. She encapsulated everything I was into at the time, which was easy on her part, because I was into some really shady shit back then. We spent a year dating each other exclusively with only a few tiny red flags that... She would say truly awful things in a casual tone of voice that would lead anyone to believe it was completely normal to tell their boyfriend that they were "losing interest" in them.
