I've been dating a guy for about 4 months. we haven't called each girlfriend/boyfriend yet but we are both committed to dating each other exclusively. recently my ex has asked me out to catch up over dinner. i'm not sure what his intention is. if i see my ex for dinner, would this be considered cheating with the guy I'm seeing?
If you are going only for dinner with your ex, then it's not cheating. However since he is your ex it is certainly not recommended that you go to dinner with your ex. Whatever your ex's intentions may be you should refuse him politely.
If you go to the dinner with your ex it will not be considered as cheating but it would be very disrespectful to the guy you are dating with and it would be even more disrespectful if you go to dinner with your ex without telling the guy you are dating with.
Why? that's because it can easily lead to the guy thinking that you still miss your ex or something maybe going on between you and your ex and that can create misunderstandings between you and the guy you are dating with.
Since you are dating the other guy you should cut off all contact with your ex, you shouldn't even entertain any thoughts of catching up with your ex, be it through any means.
I'm not a jealous person one single bit, so I wouldn't care especially if there was no label on it. However if I'm dating someone for 4 months and not calling them a girlfriend I'm probably talking to other girls. You don't say we aren't going to date other people and at the same time not call it a relationship.
Yes. While there is no label, you did commit to dating one another exclusively. Now, if you're comfortable with the notion of the guy you're dating to go see his ex, in the same way you do, then go ahead. Just know that there's a a 90% chance your EX and you will sleep with one another when you go out for "dinner".
If you have to ask then, it just might be, especially since you state there is a mutual commitment to exclusive dating. If you had not made that statement, it would be less questionable. (At least to me.)
That doesn't seem like a good idea, but it also doesn't seem very good that you are even entertaining the idea of going to dinner with your ex while having a boyfriend i think you should reevaluate how you feel about said boyfriend
No, it's not cheating. I do feel you should be open and let the person you're dating know :) Trust builds a very strong relationship. It'll show that you respect him as well. . And trust in both ways. He can trust you having a decent dinner with your ex and you can trust him being able to be open and honest.
