  • I'm rather picky so that would be hard for me to do to begin with but I also think that its a bad idea just from a psychological standpoint. Basically when you have a back up you have basically increased the odds of the current date/relationship to fail as you have no need to be completely invested in it. So with one foot out the door you really have no motivation to put forth your entire effort into what you currently have in order to make it work (which is necessary for relationships to function properly).

  • If Im dating you, then no Im not thinking about other guys. But if im just crushing on you, then yea there's always another crush who I temporarily sat aside in order to focus on just you. So like... dont fck up

  • Do I have someone lined up that I can use if I can get what I really want? No decent person does this.

  • No, that's silly. I don't play dating like it's a game. I date someone I like and, if that falls apart, I'm in no rush to get to my next partner.

  • Technically, I do have a few guys who are currently flirting with me and interested in me, so yeah if I'm done with my current guy I can easily get with another one possibly in less than a week.
    BUT I won't do it because rebounds are set to fail. I don't to loose my time or the other guy's time.

    • So why are you flirting with these other guys if you don't plan on ever getting with them, and given that you're currently taken?

    • I don't flirt back I'm friendly but that's about it

  • Nah, I focus on that one person.

  • If someone else worthy appears in my life then why not? But that doesn't usually happen. Too many duds or people who are already taken.

  • Never. I'm always thinking about just that person that I'm with. Why go into a relationship with someone if in the back of your mind, you think it'll end in failure.

    • Lol but let's say you are able to get a backup plan, would you go for it?

    • No, simply because I wouldn't like to be someone's backup plan, therefore I wouldn't do it either.

  • No. I see no reason to, because I'm going to assume that my relationship with the girl I'm dating will be a success.

    • so you shouldn't even bother. You are ready for it to end before you have even tried. pointless and ignorant. Grow up or stay single.

    • @whywouldyou grow up? why yes cuz girls don't do the EXACT same thing.

  • I go with the flow. I can't say I've ever planned anything in my life.
