I’m in a bit of a situation, and it’s not a good one. I’ll try to keep this short and to the point. So about 3 months ago, me and my friend went to a house party and I met this guy I’ll call Mark. Mark and I were really vibing with each other, but at the time I was in a relationship. Because I was committed to my ex, but thought Mark was a good guy, I introduced him to my friend. Since that night, the two have been talking and went on dates, but aren’t in a relationship. My friend says he likes Mark, but isn’t sure he wants to be tied down to one person. Heck, he dates Mark and two other people right now.
The dilemma is, Mark and I have been texting since we met. Our conversations weren’t romantic or anything at first, because again I was boo’d up and I introduced him to my friend. We would talk about sports, shows, and life in general. However, in the back of my mind I still felt drawn to him, and I’m pretty sure the attraction is mutual. Since I’ve broken up with my ex about a month ago, Mark and I have been flirting. Trust me I know it’s bad because Mark is talking to my friend. Well what’s even worse, is that I’m tired of sneaking behind friend’s back, and I’m tired of not being able to act on my attraction. I want to be with Mark. With all that said, I’m not sure how to handle this problem. Hopefully, you can help.
Would you stay with someone who told you he doesn’t think he can be monogamous? I’ve been seeing this guy for about 3 months, and he told me he’s not sure if he be with just one person for the rest of his life. I naturally asked him if he was trying to break up with me. He told me he didn’t want to breakup, but wanted to know if I’d be okay with him hooking up with someone else from time to time. He promised it would be with people I don’t know and that he’d always be safe. I wasn’t sure what to say to him, so I told him to give me some time to think about it. 2 weeks later, and I still don’t know what to tell him. I really like him, but don’t want to be in an open relationship. Thoughts?
