I'm recently single after many years in a relationship. I'm not proactively looking for a commitment. Honestly I am just enjoying my life as a independent woman until I meet one that has the potential for a lasting relationship. But here's the dilemma I have, I keep on getting asked if I'm seeing other men. When I respond "yes, I'm dating a few" I get these odd looks. How many is too many to date at any given time? and is being vague a signal of discouragement to men?

They're giving odd looks because everyone wants to be the only person the other is dating. However, prior to exclusivity, that's unrealistic. I assume that the guys I'm dating are dating other women up until the time we decide we're exclusive. That's what dating is for, and that's what exclusivity is for. There is no limit to how many you should be dating as long as you're keeping up with your work/home obligations and you're not intentionally hurting people.1
