ASK REAL GUYS
All About Playing the Field
Dear ASK REAL GUYS: I think of myself as a sexually open-minded person. I don’t usually do the commitment thing because at 27 I don’t think dating one guy at a time is going to get me anywhere.Why is it that guys seem OK with this concept until I mention I have another date coming up? Also, do you think that in today’s society a girl like me can be respected for making such a choice, or do you think it will make men view me as less desirable?
Avery: Unfortunately the double standard still exists. If a guy does what you’re doing, he’s a stud, but if a woman does it, she’s a slut. If the lifestyle of dating different men works for you, then do it, but I’d caution you that telling one guy that you’ve got another date coming up, isn’t really making things better for you. It’s better to keep that aspect of your life to yourself. Keep having fun. It sounds like you know what you want.
