Pros and Cons for Dating more than One Guy

Before the world turned into a complete confusing dating conundrum you were always monogamous, focused on one person at a time and now you want to try a new tactic of dating multiple people at once and yes this is possible without becoming the village bicycle.
Dating multiple people allows you to weigh your options instead of driving yourself nuts and obsessing over just one man. Not investing all your time, energy, and emotions into any single man, no matter how much he's convinced you he's Mr. Fabulous really has its perks and of course it’s issues. In these times especially, trying to pursue a career etc. you simply don't have time to fret about how much time he's fretting about you, if you're simultaneously dating Mr. Semi-Fabulous and Mr. Just-Okay as well. If you are looking for a serious relationship, then you should absolutely be dating more than one man at once... you need quantity to find quality.
Now dating more than one person at once has its pros and cons I tell you and before entering any battlefield, you have to equip yourself with the right weapons for survival. Here are some pros and cons for you.
PRO:Getting to know people intellectually, emotionally and spiritually takes time. While you're still technically single, why not expand your options?
CON:By dating multiple men, you're relying more on luck than dating experience to figure out which guys are keepers and which ones to throw back.
PRO:Dating around takes the initial focus off of one person and alleviates the stress that comes along with waiting for that phone to ring or the attention you feel you deserve. Sometimes only dating one person at once causes you to pour way too much attention towards that person at the get-go, and that will send him running, and you into heartache.
CON: Dating other people just to take the focus off of one person can also be a fruitless waste of time. Make sure that if you do decide to date multiple people, something about each person genuinely interests you. If you know from the beginning it's a no-go, you're just wasting their time and your own.
PRO:Fun dates with many guys keeps you in control; its gives you power which you’ve never known before. By dating more than one at a time, you won't waste time getting emotionally invested with men who do not have your best interest at heart.
CON: When you're dating around, it's wise to wait longer to be sexually intimate. That can be frustrating for both of you; if this is what dating is to you of course.
PRO:Dating multiple people can be a great way to understand the qualities of the person you are seeking; by paying attention and using insight on your dates, you can learn a lot about what you need in a partner, and what you don't. You have a way to compare and get what you really want from a relationship.
It’s a tough world out there today and dating hasn’t become any easier. Now remember I am not encouraging sex with multiple partners especially as that is a whole con on its own, what I am encouraging is a fair chance to find the right fit for you in an otherwise cold world. If you put too much focus and energy in someone who has not committed to you, it is a recipe for disaster. You deserve the best and if you have the means to get it? Why settle for any less? Go forth and enjoy a new world that awaits you.
