Is "Playing the Field" wrong in a relationship? ... or is it just another form of dating?

laurieluvsit
MY DEFINITION: Someone who sees two, or more, others in casual relationships at the same time and is unlikely to be faithful, trustworthy, or respectful in those relationships. They may seem honest and genuine, but given enough time, it is expected that they may give each person the impression that they are becoming a significant other, while in reality they will "play" with the emotions of that innocent person for the "Players" own self gratification. (SYNONYM: cheat on/burn/disappoint).

Some argue that "Playing the Field" is just a type of dating that is necessary early in life in order to experience multiple relationships at the same time with enough people in order to really be able to pick a good mate. Is this true?
