There comes a time in everybody’s dating career when your dance card suddenly becomes fuller than you know what to do with.

One day, you’re swiping sullenly through Tinder bemoaning the lack of attractive, normal-seeming men that are possibly as tall as they say they are in their profiles, and the next, you find yourself drafting a spreadsheet to keep track of the nine dates that you have somehow booked for one week. Like all things in life, your dating life will ebb and flow.

Whether it's chance, timing, an exact alignment of stars — hell, who cares what it is!

— you've found yourself on the receiving end of a man monsoon.

I apologized for the delay and expected to hear back. Was I in the wrong to continue to make dates with other people?

♦◊♦Dear I’m Not a Heart-breaker Type, As I’ve referenced time and time again, there are people who sign up to be on reality TV show where they are one of many people dating one guy.

Again, the commute isn’t great so it’s hard to see her frequently, although I did enjoy hanging out with her.

She told me on our second date that she is still a virgin which I’m fine with. I was trying to be very respectful of where she’s at in life. I told her honestly I wasn’t sure, but it was something we could sort out after I came back from a family vacation I was about to go on. She told me that she felt like I had made her a back-up option, and because of my small social circle it had gotten back to her that she was not the only person I was seeing.

I’m in my early twenties, done with college, finally in the real world, and am trying to see what is out there for dating.

With where I’m at, I’ve found it isn’t the easiest to meet new people without turning to on-line dating.

But being so politely planned out — limiting yourself to one guy per weekend or even per day — could cause you to lose momentum.

So go ahead and pack your PDA with appointments as tightly as you can swing it.

Always be open and honest about your relationship and dating status.
