Mar 29, · do you keep your options open when you are exclusively with someone Page 1 of 1: this is an open question to the females. I mean, over half of relationships involve somebody cheating, so i am assuming that people do keep their options open and flirt with other people while they are in a relationship. Dating Advice: Keep Your Dating Options Open. If this sounds nearly impossible, because you feel so emotionally connected to one man, you can STILL do it. One of the first steps to understanding why it’s so important to always keep your options open is to challenge the way we all think relationships should .
To protect your heart, it is suggested not to put all of your eggs in one basket. Date two, three or four different people…get to know them. This is an understandable concept especially when you are just beginning to get out there in the dating scene. When is the appropriate time to focus your attention on one person and cut-off other prospects? Yes men are picky too. Despite their masked reasons, in my opinion men are just better protectors of their hearts than women.
Understand the purpose of keeping your options open. Dating is about getting to know all different types of people so that you can be certain when you finally decide to settle down.
If you close your options too early in a relationship, you limit the chances for dating a variety of people. Move slow.
Don't rush around the bases. Hell, don't even rush to a first kiss. Stare in each other's eyes. Hold hands. Trace your finger down his leg.
Gently play with her hair. Let the romantic tension build. Have sex only when you feel really ready. Keep your friendships in tact. Never, never, never, NEVER cancel, postpone or avoid making plans with friends because you are devoting all your time to your new special somebody.
Keep your goals in tact. Why make a guy your priority if all you are to him is an option? Different men fulfill different needs. Jack, Bill and Ryan are still interested. You can focus on yourself. With no commitment to a guy, you have more time to do the things you want. You come across as less available. What guy wants a girl who is available all the time?
So to avoid disappointment and heartache they date a few women. And if not ready to pursue the next step with one special woman…. To avoid the risk of total loss…. We as women aspire to meet and become exclusive with a special gent as well. But sometimes, we may also have personal matters to deal with, recently out of a relationship or are career focused. We currently cannot give a man all the attention that he needs or have the time to address all the emotional aspects of a relationship.
So we prefer to establish friendships with a possible plus one at a social event. Or we as well are just as picky. Timing of our interests and the men we pursue is often off. When we are ready it is typically out of sync with the other person wants. So why the man we date may not be ready for exclusivity…we begin to date other men and give them an opportunity to shine and pursue our heart.
So us woman sometimes may have our heart with one person but understand that exclusivity is not discussed.
