    I met a guy who had this twinkle in his eyes

    when he saw me. His eyes literally lit up as if he was in love with me. He was so thoughtful. Opened car doors for me, he seemed perfect. Almost too good to be true. Then we started seeing each other every single day. I met his mom! We were like addicted to seeing each other...

    It's Horrible And I Have No Idea Why It's A Common Practice.

    It has recently been made clear to me that people date people they're not in relationships with... I can't seem to understand why anyone would want to seek out a person they don't know very well in order to see if you are romantically compatible... Why not go on dates with...

    It's So Confusing

    Well, I've gotten different people's input, and they sort of explained it, but I still don't get it.  I'll just say what I actually do sort of understand from what, and y'all can correct me if I'm wrong. So a date is like when a guy and a girl go somewhere together. When a...

    I've been talking to a guy for four weeks. Last week he told me that he wants to work towards being in a relationship with me & I agreed to feeling the same way. But, he hasn't seen me except one time & the phone calls have become less frequent. I really like this guy. He's the...

    I don't think that dating is understand able

    dating is life. I think dating would be better if we all know how to treat each other and how we fill about ourselves. but you would have to know how to love yourself to love someone else.

    I have a date tonight,

    lucky guy I know lol, but I've really been asking myself what the point is in spending around £50 each on a night out for it to end with us arranging to do it all again. Usually I like to get sex out the way on the first date and I've found it helps me decide if I would want to...

    Dating is weird for me

    because I have never done it before. I have been in several relationships, none of which started out with dating. All of them started out as friendships and when we both realized we liked each other we went straight into a relationship, that usually took a month or two. Now a...

    I wish dating were simpler,

    like if we could just write resumés about ourselves and hand them out to perspective people. You know people would lie about themselves on that resumé but you could call their references and confirm it!

    Dating would be so much better

    if people were honest about themselves. If guys never cared so much about sex that they pretend to want a relationship and if girls never pretended to like a guy to get free drinks at the bar. I wish dating was more structured. Like, if you liked someone you would give them a...

    So you want to date a cougar?

    Well, that is an interesting and exciting choice you’ve made. Cougar women are such fine creatures, lovelier and more self-possessed than their younger sisters. It would be a prize to date a cougar and keep her for as long as you can.If you are thinking to yourself, &ldquo...

    You Be the Judge

    I met a guy out on a pub crawl. I was drunk, and got sorta shoved into him by a drunk friend (I pointed him out to her as cute - really the only decent looking guy in my sightline, wasn't a great pub crawl now that I think about it - and she went over and told him that I thought...

    Dating for some people is easy.

    For others, it's self esteem issues. Women get asked flirted with by 300 hundred people whether they know it or not. Women have been getting asked out from the age of puberty till now. Women have learned to sAy no. In fact, they will know within the first 5 minutes if they...

    Here I am, well over 30.

    Dating is something I'd like to stand on it's head. Many times I've dived in with hormones first...and end up with the wrong guy. Now I'm starting over; nothing intimate until I know for a fact he's not just playing me... But how do I even know that? I believe it will be when he...

    I want a relationship,

    I just don't understand dating. One of my best friends is in a relationship and it confuses me because she's with him all the time, you'd think they'd run out of things to say to each other. She acts like a baby with him and whines all the time, which makes him laugh. I don't...

    it's not that it's confusing

    but most of the time we're so blinded and lost in feelings and lust and love; that when we finally get thrown into reality we don't realize what we did and don't use reason which sometimes is bad. dating is easy but the hard part is dealing with the problems that test the...

    Dating Someone Who Is Dating Someone Else
