Dear CRF, What Are the Rules?

Dear CRF,
“What are the real rules in dating? I’m new to the dating scene and my question is if I’m not in an exclusive boyfriend and girlfriend relationship is it fair or right to go out on dates with different men. And there’s is no sex involved what’s so ever either. I need your help I’m not sure which way is right.”

CRF RESPONSE
The only rule I have for dating is based on the Golden Rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” But also remember when another is doing to you things you wouldn’t do to yourself or otherss (bad things of course) then recognize those actions as red flags and have the courage to walk away.

There are those who date multiple people at a time and others who date one person at a time. Neither way is right or wrong, it depends on preference. Have that discussion with the man or men you’re dating. If they are seeing others then what is good for the goose is good for the gander. If they aren’t and would rather you didn’t then you need to take some time to figure out if this person is someone you want to date exclusively. If yes then do that. If no, let him know that as well.
