He started dating someone else
That’s why it’s important to have that “talk” about what you want.
You should make it clear if you are not okay with him seeing other people, or find out that he is, which then gives you permission to also date more than one person at once. If he has told you that yes, he wants to commit to only you but you think he’s showing signs he is talking to someone else, that’s disrespectful, and you need to end things immediately. And realize that talking to another woman doesn’t necessarily mean he’s sleeping with her…but he can be just as unfaithful.
You’ve been dating a man for a few weeks, and while you think it’s going okay, you find yourself looking for signs he is talking to someone else.
You’re afraid to get too emotionally invested in this situation until you’re sure that he’s interested in you and you alone.
You can’t rely on what he’ll tell you because, of course, he will tell you that they’re just friends. So you agree that you’ve spotted several signs he is talking to other women and now you need to figure out your best course of action. Maybe you’re at a place in your life where you’re not ready to commit to a man, so it’s not a big deal that he’s dating other people.
“You might be engaging in micro-cheating if you secretly connect with another guy/girl on social media; if you share private jokes; if you downplay the seriousness of your relationship to another guy/girl; or if you enter their name under a code in your phone,” said Melanie Schilling, a dating expert.
But realize that by pulling back from wooing you and taking you out and just coming over to get his rocks off, this guy is majorly disrespecting you.
You’re getting this message from your friends…or else you’re seeing it firsthand.
The point is: if you aren’t secure in this, you need to do some investigating. If you haven’t had “the talk” about being exclusive, you can’t expect him to commit to only you.
In the early days of dating, it’s pretty common for one or both people to talk to or date more than one person.
There’s a fine line between being honest and being cruel.
