Playing the Field on a Date

Couple and Woman Flirting

I Know You’re My Date, But…

At first I felt guilty about this—but I soon got over it. Lemme know your thoughts:

I was cruising online and found a girl who seemed worthy of a hookup. While on Date #1, we ended up some place full of plenty of other deliciously irresistible gals (a pole-dancing party, to be exact). Before the night was over (in fact, let’s just pull out all the stops and call it for what it was – in the middle of our First Date together) I met someone else – a girl with whom I connected much better than the date I showed up with.

Is there an etiquette that should be followed for switching to Girl #2 before your First Date with Girl #1 is even over?

This actually happened to me. Throughout the course of the night, I couldn’t help but wish Girl #2 were my date instead. Sure, I suppose I’m a wee bit ashamed to say my feelings became embarrassingly obvious. In the end, I went home with neither of them that night; but that only postponed hurting the feelings of Girl #1, who, the next day, was officially told (by me) that I’d henceforth be dating Girl #2.

(I’d like to note that, in my defence [if there is one…], I subsequently began a months-long relationship with Girl #2, so there was a bit of a follow-my-heart kind of thingy going on, but, still, I know, I know…!)

So, back to my original thought that I’d like to throw on the table for all you guys’n’gals out there

Is life not too short? Shouldn’t dating etiquette be trumped by the possibility of happiness?

Did my behaviour that night make me nothing more than a self-serving asshole?

Let me know what you think, ladies.

Sock it to me. I can take it. Or, at least I’m willing to get pummeled by opposing views.

(Besides, if I don’t like what you have to tell me, I can always dump you for the cuter girl standing next to you. Heehee! Kidding, kidding!)

As always—wishing you Peace, Love, and All Things Sexy!
