We joke about the site all the time and tease each other whenever one of us happens to see that the other has gotten a new message, but there’s this tiny part of me that’s worried that he’ll actually act on it.
I know this is a really stupid and petty thing to be worried about but somehow I can’t let it stop bothering me.
Put it this way: I don’t go to Amazon to browse books. There IS a temptation, for both men and women, to try to continually “trade up”.
But the whole point of dating – for most of us, anyway – is to find one person that makes you want to quit altogether.
He’s super sweet, thoughtful, kind, and affectionate, genuinely enjoys spending time with me, and even at this early stage he’s hinted to me that he can see this relationship continuing for a while.
The problem is we met on an online dating site and he’s still listed as single on there.
OK, whoa, sorry for posting that fake letter yesterday. That’s OK — I can take it as well as I can dish it.
If pressed, your excuse for using the site should be the same as his.
If you’re not comfortable asking him to stop, I have one other recommendation.
Create an account on the same site and communicate with him.
Or would you guess that a man who has a membership on a dating site is actually, you know… There is simply no viable, reasonable, acceptable response he can make – even if, somehow, he has not met ANY new women since “committing” to you.
USING that site for its intended purposes – to meet new women? I’ll be the first to admit – online dating can be addicting – especially when you’re getting a lot of attention.
