So, after stalking each other’s online profiles for a while, I bit the bullet and emailed a guy who seems really cool and compatible with me. He responded to let me know that, while he does want to keep chatting, he went on a date with someone else and is looking to see where that’s going before he goes out with me. I respect his honesty and appreciate that he didn’t just ignore me, but part of me can’t help feeling like sloppy seconds. So, am I a chump if I keep talking to him? Or is it worth it to see what happens? I have no intention of sitting at home waiting for someone that’s just keeping me on deck and do plan on dating other people.

We are almost all sloppy seconds (or thirds or worse). Okay, it sucks to hear that you aren't the only one he might be interested in but, and this is really the thing that comes to my mind, you are really lucky that you met a guy who is decent enough to not engage with other girls before he knows how things will turn out with the one he's currently dating. So may guys out there, especially in online dating, that juggle multiple girlfriends and dates. This must be a guy that is actually looking for a serious relationship. So get past the fact that he would maybe consider another girl over you (both of whom he doesn't really know) and stay in there.0
