She might not have been mature or confident enough to do so.
In order to get adult answers, you have to ask the uncomfortable adult questions about exclusivity.
I won’t ask you to do so if you aren’t ready, but that is where I am at.” As I got a little older, I decided I found it more enjoyable to only go out on dates with one person at a time.
I might tell whomever I was seeing from the get-go that I only go on dates with one person at a time because I found it easier to get to know someone by just focusing on them, but again, they were free to approach dating how they needed to.
It may seem more convenient to go back to those college days and find someone from where you went to school.
Perhaps you’re no longer on the same level as they are.
Exclusivity is something that should never be assumed.
The problem with meeting girls through mutual friends at the college I went to, is that it’s about a two hour commute from where I live now. I went on two dates over the course of a month with one girl.
Before the vacation, I went out with another girl, and had a third girl ask me out although no definitive plans were made. It seemed fairly new in getting to know each other to declare that she was my girlfriend.
I tried to text the initial girl after there was a delayed response on my part (cell phone signal issues while on vacation). I am dating with the hopes of ending up in a relationship.
Maybe she was frustrated that you couldn’t take her to Fiji for the third date?
I’ve gone on dates with multiple people within a week.
