In the future, from the first date, let the guy know what you want and need: exclusivity. Even if you’ve missed your opportunity to set your boundaries on the first date, do it now.Tell him you won’t date him while he’s seeing other women. He might say, “I can’t commit right now.” You’re not asking him to.If we don’t work out and wind up going our separate ways, at least I’ll know I gave us a fair shot. I expect you to treat me with the same courtesy.” And if he refuses, consider yourself lucky that you’re finding this out now, before throwing away months when you could be dating more effectively. You’d be surprised how much a statement like that will impress and be endearing to quality guys. Sometimes guys need to tell women this as well.) There’s no bigger turn-off than a woman without self-confidence.

Known for her honesty, candor, and for passing out wisdom that people trust.

Everything was still so new between us, so I let the subject drop. I’m afraid to bring this up with him because the conversation didn’t go well the last time; he’s obviously not ready to be exclusive with me. My friend, you are an unwitting victim of the new culture that I call “the Tinder Revolution.” Although it’s always been possible to see more than one person at a time, technology – and Tinder, where one swipes right or left to meet or reject another – is just one app of many that has made it much easier for us to encounter, get-to-know, and “communicate” with multiple people simultaneously.But here’s the thing: We have so much fun together. My best friend tells me to relax – this is just how dating is. I’m going nuts thinking about him dating other girls. However, despite the apparent benefits, the Tinder Revolution often leaves us feeling less self-confident, confused, frustrated, and empty. Everybody wants to feel special and to be treated with love and respect.I have missed his company, but my life has also become increasingly busier and fuller.My career has started to grow, along with my group of close girlfriends and contacts.Before a casual coupled-up Instagram post became the de facto way to announce your relationship to the world on social media, there was “going Facebook official.” To go Facebook official, you would update your relationship status — married, engaged, in a relationship, or the notorious in an open relationship — and tag the object of Dating is like, super hard now, so it’s a wonder how the human race will continue to procreate with the ratio of bad dates to couple-success stories.
