Men do it all the time so I don't know why it's a big deal if a woman does it. Furthermore, in many cultures, it's either you are married or single. And I think it's better that way. Why commit to someone when it will likely end up in a break up? Black and white thinking??
Men's idea of loyalty is very one sides and skewed. We already have studies showing men don't stick around unless it benefits them, and once they find better, they are OUT like a thief in the night.
Mar 21, 2. Because these other cultures you're talking about don't know about "dating". People meet through family or friends, get to know each other as soon as possible in order to figure out if they should get engaged.
Then they get married pretty quick. So you're not in a relationship with this person before the engagement. That is not the case "Keep your options open dating codes" western culture. You're dating someone to figure out if they should be your girlfriend or boyfriend Then you wait 5 years before you talk about marriage THEN you get married. So if in all that time you're still seeing other people,you're not in a monogamous relationship, Keep your options open dating codes in an open relationship.
That means that you ARE cheating if you haven't discussed that fact yet. Mar 21, 3. Why should what some men do determine your own morals and how you treat someone you supposedly care about?
Shouldn't the only thing that matters is what your boyfriend is doing?
If he's not keeping his options open then why should he suffer consequences of what these imaginary men are doing? Women do shit all the time too and I doubt you're okay with men using it as an excuse for their actions.
You personally also complain about Keep your options open dating codes not paying for dates. So are you okay with the man you're holding out for using you being cheap as an excuse not to pay for your future dates? You can't use "Men do it all the time" as an excuse for your own degenerate behavior.
If that's what determines your code then you aren't shit yourself and shouldn't act as if you're better. Thanks x 83 Skeptical x 5 Disagree!
