Let’s say you have been dating someone for a while. Things are going great. Your boyfriend gets up to take his dog out for a walk and leaves his phone behind.
A text message comes through and without thinking you pick the phone up and see it’s from an ex-boyfriend. The message is simple, something like: “hey, what’s up?” You know the history these two have had and are kind of surprised they are chatting.
Your boyfriend comes back from walking the dogs and you tell him a message came through from the guy and you ask him about it. He tells you they ran into each other at the gym and the guy apologized for being a jerk and asked him out. He turned the guy down and thought that was the end of it.
Your first question is “Did you tell him you have a boyfriend?”
He says no he didn’t feel the need to tell him that but if he accepted his friend request the guy could figure it out for himself.
My question to you is: at what point in the relationship do you stop talking to guys who want to sleep with you? Friends are different but guys whose intention it is to get you in bed. At what point in your relationship do you tell them you are dating someone and it’s not going to happen?
