Thirteen rules of dating

This cultivates trust between the two of you, helps you come to a conclusion regarding your issue, and saves your friends from yet another venting session.

If you must get advice about your guy, take it from a friend who is in a happy and healthy relationship.

And these were things I read when I started my journey into non-monogamy.

Given I was about to be in the UK in 6 months and I didn’t want to be ‘controlling’, I obliged.

He said he’d told this person about me, even that they wanted to have a threesome with all of us.

Quickly I found though that there were several lessons I had to learn the hard way that these sources either didn’t teach me clearly enough or actually got in my way of learning these lessons.

So here are the 13 things I wish I’d learnt earlier about non-monogamy:hen you first start reading about non-monogamy, the emphasis on the unhealthiness of jealousy is drilled into you to the point where, at least for me, not being one of those jealous people you hear about that implode their own relationships by trying to control their partners’ every move becomes your personal mission.

Sometimes I wish someone actually sat me down as a kid and talked to me about dating and relationships. And the little boys in middle school were perverts and spent their free time trying to touch on girls’ butts.

I don’t ever recall talking to either parent about these subjects, but I did hear “You better not come home knocked up.” So yeah, I knew not to get pregnant, but I didn’t actually know how one “got pregnant,” if that makes any sense. The last boy who attempted to cop a feel in the 8th grade ended up with a black eye.

This person seemed relatively cool and similar to me so I offered to friend them on Facebook to get to know them.

The guy immediately banned me from speaking to them on the grounds that he felt more comfortable with us talking in person first.

Last week my 13-year-old son came into my room, laid next to me on my bed and placed his head on my shoulder. I didn’t want him to answer the question, but to just think about it and pay attention to their interactions at school.

This is usually what he does when he wants something, so I was preparing myself for either of these questions: I was preparing myself to say no to whatever request he was about to ask. If he felt that there was something more there, then maybe he should simply ask her to the movies and see what she says.
