We all see the movies and countless TV shows where the protagonist is torn between two lovers, for various reasons of course. Here’s an example, when playing the field and keeping your options open and everything goes tragically wrong! Usually because they mislead each other, then both parties catch feelings and end up dating.
Most of us have been down this road, trying to play both fields and never scoring a touchdown. The goal is to be in a stable relationship because unlike the movies, people feelings can get brutally hurt.
When looking for someone to call your own, getting to know more than one person is harmless. Putting all your eggs in one unsecured basket is a recipe for disaster. “On a getting to know you basis” a relationship is not cemented, it just a possibility. Understanding that getting to know one another is not playing with any ones emotions, this is just a preliminary stage. When these words are uttered, no other expectations can be attached, except the one that is implied.
Fact of the matter is, when it comes to the heart and love. The experience is definitely trial and error. This doesn’t mean go around and fall in love with everyone. This means be upfront and honest on where you stand, what you’re looking for, and above all what your intentions are. This will help you create your own progress in your own love story, instead of watching it unfold with your favorite characters on the big screen.
