Can You Date More Than One Person At a Time?

The beauty of online dating is that you can generate a lot of dates with a lot of different people in a short period of time, especially if you market yourself the right way. So what do you do if you’ve met more than one person that you would like to pursue but can’t decide which one you want? Can you date more than one person at a time? Sure you can, you just have to proceed in a very open, honest and respectful way.

Can You Date More Than One Person At a Time?

  1. Yes, as long as you aren’t sleeping with more than one person. If you are, then that’s another story but with online they recommend early on dating a few. I’m sure the guys I was meeting on dating sites were dating others and it didn’t bother me. Once you both agree to be exclusive then no you shouldn’t date others. Since none of my dates from sites lasted more than a few days (not even kissing, nothing at all) then I think just dating one at a time is not very smart. It’s not like traditional dating where you probably knew the person months, even years before dating.


  2. I totally agree that seeing more than one person at a time is perfectly fine, I advise keeping the details of your dates secret, but not hidden. Meaning don’t hide the fact that you are seeing other people, but don’t advertise it on your dates. In my case I was on a date with someone new and another lady texted me to ask “what I was doing tonight?” my response was simple “Having drinks with a friend.” She got the point and it was easier than lying or making up a lame excuse.

    Also even if you’ve had sex, this does not mean you cut everyone else loose. As long as your safe and use protection no one needs to know what you are doing.

    dating multiple people will become tiresome, mostly from telling the same stories to different people and keeping track of who you told what to who, but eventually one will rise to the top and your choice will be clear. If your ready to become exclusive, then have THAT talk, if not then talk about having an “Open” relationship where you are both free to date other people.

    This option will only work if both of you are COMPLETELY honest with you feelings for each other.
