Do you keep dating someone if you don't see long-term potential with them?

And also should you keep dating them? I don't mean that I automatically think about marriage etc etc when I meet a guy but usually I like to think about things like him mixing with my friends and family and if I don't see that working out I will cut it off... the issue is sometimes I regret it because I feel like I should have given him more of a chance and got to know him better but at other times I feel like I am leading a guy on if I continue dating him like that.

  • If I don't see a future with this person that I break up with them. That means meeting their family which if she doesn't want me to meet. Like she is ashamed which I can understand if she doesn't get along with them or hates them. Really seems like a waste of time to date someone who don't see a long term relationship with that could lead to marriage and maybe having children with them someday.

  • I don't date anyone I don't see myself with in the long run. Made it so I dated a lot less sure, but I've been successful because of it.

  • Actually it depends... Marriage is a life time commitment.. So think ten times before achieving that lvl

  • No, I don't see the point in it. I wouldn't like to lead the other person on either if they saw long-term potential and I didn't.

  • I don't see the point if I don't see there ever being a future. I have had casual situations but if I go as fracas to say boyfriend then it would notvjust be a friends with benefits. So if your my boyfriend I have to think its a possibility at least.
