For some, a committed, exclusive relationship is exactly what they’re looking for. The feelings of having one person to come home too, to care for, to love, brings comfort in providing exactly what they need. However, for others getting to know multiple people in more ways than one, is better than any love they could ever find. No one to answer to, no rules to follow, just relaxation in knowing that every decision is theirs to make.
Like everything though, there is the pros and cons.
Being with one person is often more liberating than being alone. Finding someone who you can be your complete self with, in any scenario is a special and rare thing that should be cherished. On the other hand, one can feel very suffocated and isolated when in an exclusive relationship. Having someone breathing down your neck every second, watching and dictating every move you make; it can be overwhelming to say the least.
Dating multiple people can be a freeing and exciting experience for anyone. Having no responsibilities, knowing that no matter where you wake up the next morning no one’s heart is going to be broken; it’s fun to live spontaneously with no regrets. However, never having a consistent bed-buddy to come home to or tell you they love you can be very lonely.
So, I guess in the end it depends on what you like most. There’s no harm in testing the waters, seeing what suits you, and changing your mind as many times as you need. Whether you’re a free and kindred spirit or you’d rather snuggle up with a good rental, just remember to embrace who you are.
