    Do you know of any serial daters? Guys who always seem to be in a relationship with someone new every few months and they always think this is the "one."


    I have a friend who just started dating this dude recently. They actually dated for awhile before but broke up and now are back together again. I remember when he first broke up with him he trashed him all over Facebook and now all of a sudden they are love birds. I can't help but roll my eyes.icon_rolleyes.gif


    I've only been in 2 relationships and each one I was in it for the long run. I think sometimes people rush into relationships because they confuse infatuation with love. No?

    Gays don't "date". They get what suits their fancy in the interim, discarding the current "find" when someone younger, prettier, and/or more desirable comes along.

    It's not necessarily a bad trait. Who needs "the same old thing" when you can be on a "refresh cycle" like mobile products are, and always have someone fresher, newer, more exciting every six months to a year?

    I thought that was serial monogamy, jumping from one relationship to the next.
    Of course he has to say the current bf is "the one." It would be rude to call him the placement holder until the next better bf comes along.

    A serial dater is someone who is always seeing someone new, but it's never really serious.

    I come across a few of these serial daters/relationship-ers. I dont know how they do it. I haven't been asked out of a date in years. But just last week someone asked and hearing the 'D' word unnerved me a bit. I guess is just wasn't accustomed to it.

    I also don't get those 'stormy relationship' types who break up then make up. How do they go around forgetting all the crap they said to each other and then get back all lovey-dovey? Cant wrap my head around that.

    The thing is that monogamy is not always in the equation, even if he does think this is the "one".


    Case in point, someone you know is hoing around on his current BF, yet on Facebook and in public he keeps gushing about what a great relationship he has....icon_confused.gif

    I had a long conversation with my aunt's husband one time. It started out with the usual "why aren't you married" bit and moved on to how he couldn't comprehend how anybody could be single. I always thought that it was a bit creepy that he married my aunt just a few weeks after her former husband died*. And in fact, when she died, after 30 or so years of marriage, he married another woman after just a few weeks. I know a couple of other older guys that did the same thing - married another woman just a few weeks after their long-time wife died. None of my business, but it just always seems a bit strange to me.

    *especially since he did maintenance on the aircraft that crashed and killed the former husband.

    Some people can't stand to be alone, whether it's jumping from relationship to relationship or jumping from bed to bed. It's important to find the right balance. Wanting to be in a relationship and wanting sex are perfectly natural. Both desires can become a problem when they start to effect our actions too much and we make stupid decisions. It's easy to get caught up in the rush, but the rush always wears off.

    Am I wrong in assuming that those that go from relationship to relationship are the same like that with friends? i.e. they always have the need to be around people and cant stand to be by themselves?

    People who jump from relationship to relationship quickly and often are probably misunderstanding the feeling, yeah. Infatuation can feel amazing but dating takes hard work and compromise.

    Not all serial daters are like that. It's debatable whether a single long-term monogamous relationship is better than a series of committed/invested relationships. Relationships can be successful even if they don't end in death.icon_cool.gif
