Mike and Nicole’s OPP: Three Women, One Man
Dear Mike and Nicole,
My boyfriend of four months and I had a conversation over the weekend that has had me really confused and I need your help.
A little back story...we met at a mutual friends birthday party around Halloween and instantly hit it off. I've met his family, he's met mine. He stays over at my place, I stay over at his. I felt like we were just a normal couple. I haven't ever had any trust issues with him like I have in past relationships. So, then over the weekend we met for dinner downtown and had the most bizarre conversation.
He tells me that he is also dating two other women!!! The first thing that pops into my head is "why am I just hearing about this now?", followed behind "what the &%#@?!". He assured me that his feelings are all 100% real, but because he has strong feelings for me, he wanted to be honest. In his defense, we never really had a conversation before about being exclusive, but I thought that was implied. I really love this guy, but now I don't know what to do. I asked him if he ever sees himself being with just one person and he said "absolutely", he just doesn't want to rush into and choose the wrong person. I feel like I'm on the show The Bachelor. I feel like I'm constantly going to be thinking about it now when I'm with him and I just don't know what's the right thing to do? Stick it out and see what happens, since I really love him? Or tell him that I just can't handle sharing a man with any other women?
