Dating Two People at Once; Can you do it?


Here is an older article about the art of dating two people at once.

Dating more than one guy at a time is definitely a confidence booster, but it's also hard work (oh, life is so tough, right?). Don't struggle with the juggle—we've rounded up a few ladies who have been there and done that to tell you exactly how to handle the tricky situations that come with playing the field.


DO keep the benefits in mind.

"I was previously married for about six years and didn't really take the time to consider what I wanted out of a relationship or marriage," says Megan, 27. "Now with dating more than one guy, I have been able to look at what each of them would add to my life and not feel pressured about one person. I can stay more objective until I make a decision about which situation and person better suits me, and vice versa."


DON'T date just for an ego boost.

Admit it: You know in your gut when you're stringing a guy along. "It's nice to feel wanted by more than one person, but you can't let it continue if you're not interested," says Tova, 22.


DO be honest—but not too honest.

Learn from 24-year-old Dani's dating mistake: "In my most recent relationship with a guy, we were very up front and honest about dating others, so much so that we talked with each other about our other dates," she says. "That's where things started to get messy. I realized that although I was OK with the thought of him dating other women, I wasn't actually OK with hearing about it. That brought on unwanted jealousy."


DON'T make it a game.

The risk of getting caught, however, can be part of the excitement of dating more than one guy. "I think I was so caught up in the game' of it all that being with just one guy almost seemed too monotonous for me," says Becky. "Whenever I really liked a guy and would date just him, it wouldn't seem like enough. It's now created a fantasy land that probably doesn't exist, but I hold on to the hope that somebody out there has it all."
