That's not a general rule for dating, and is completely incorrect.Originally posted by: ricochet
As a general rule for dating, you date only one at a time. That is implied and expected. Any exception to that requires explanation upfront and full disclosure of your intention. The OP and his girlfriend hid their side relationship and disclosed said relationship after the fact. That is cheating period.Originally posted by: crownjules
Lack commitment...how? He dated two girls, what's wrong with that? Dating != commitment. When you're dating, you're still figuring things out.
You can date around, "figure things out" and learn to be committed to the person you're dating. That's part of the maturing process.
Dating DOES imply a relationship. You should only have one girlfriend at a time.Originally posted by: yowolabi
No, then when do the rules come into effect? I'll answer. When one of the people dating talks to the other person and ask them if they want to be in a committed relationship. If the other person says "yes" then it's expected that all other dates will immediately be canceled. Dating does not equal a relationship. Dating is figuring out if you want to be in a relationship.
Once the relationship talk has been had, then it is considered cheating to go out with someone else, not before. You're awfully naive if you really do expect a girl to stop dating completely from the minute she agrees to date you.
This happened to me, cheated on girl, girl cheated on me, tried to call it even.
