If the interest was mutual, and I truly fell in love with a woman, a few months of waiting would be nothing. The idea of her sleeping with other guys, however, would be devastating. When I fall in love I tend to go off the deep end. The girl becomes everything I want in life. For her to just casually sleep with other guys while we're away for just a few months would make me really sad, as no other girl would be attractive to me for such a short duration of time. They wouldn't be her when I'm in that "honeymoon phase", and for that reason they would not be attractive to me.
Yes it's ok because there's no agreement on exclusivity.
It would be unadvisedl to tell them about your exploits while away. Why do they need to even know, you're not in a relationship. And if you did tell them, I do believe that it would definitely hurt your chances at something later on. Keep that stuff to yourself.
You are within your rights to sleep with whoever you damn please until you are married but that doesn't really mean it's morally acceptable to everyone else. If someone you like means enough to you then you shouldn't really have to ask rather you should already have your answer. Obviously if you actually care for someone you are not going to sleep with other people while you are "talking to them" if you have a general interest in progressing a relationship.
I think if you're into someone enough you shouldn't be fucking around with other people. Technically it's cool, although I think it's a bit loose really and I wouldn't get with a girl if, while we were on each other's radars; she was off elsewhere getting dick.
i've always found this odd because i'm Australian and in Australia after about 3 dates you don't even have to talk about it you just assume you're exclusive, like that's just the way it is. like it's always like that unless one of you says that you aren't exclusive.
If you aren't exclusive and it is too soon to do long distance then yeah, you can do whatever you want. If you want to reconnect when you get back then I would definitely make sure you are both on the same page about that.
Have a frank discussion about it. Tell her/him that you're head over heels, but want to be sure you are both doing the same thing.. and if he/she plans to slap and tickle others, then A) he/she isn't head over heels for you, and B) you better get yo' fun on in the sack with others and move on.
