Believe me, he will not be turned off by you dating more men than just him.
What he is competitive enough to know that he wants to show you why you should drop the others and become exclusive to him.
Another good rule is that if you’re not comfortable talking about birth control and STD protection with him, you’re definitely not ready to be giving yourself to someone on the kind of sexual level we’re talking about here.
As uncomfortable as those conversations can be, they are necessary conversations to have with someone you’re about to become intimate with. When someone I had been dating suddenly wasn’t calling as often or as regularly as he had been, instead of talking to him directly about it, or deciding to back off myself and start living my life more so that I wasn’t sitting around waiting for him to call, I would get scared and call him.
Because I had no idea how much heartbreak and misery I could have saved myself if someone had only told me what huge mistakes I was making by doing some of the these things, I'm going to tell you about the huge mistakes you are making (and we all make).
I have found that the best rule to follow here is not the amazing chemistry barometer when you’re in the heat of the moment (which is not going to be very objective) but instead the rule of waiting until you have a firm commitment from him and you’re both exclusively committed to each other.
I would automatically assume he was so much more than me and I was thrilled that he was paying so much attention to me.
What I finally figured out was that this really was about me.
After dating several guys for a while you might just find that the guy you originally thought was number two or three surprises you and takes on the number one position.
There are so many different views on when it’s ok and not ok to be intimate with someone.
