It’s a dilemma that’s more common than you think when online dating turns into an offline relationship.
The funny thing about being in a relationship when you’ve been single for so long is that you go into it having all these preconceived ideas on how you would react to certain dating situations, and you prejudge your future relationships based on your past ones.
Other times, you get hit with a case of FOMO, or fear of missing out, and you take a gander at all the men or women you could be dating instead.
Every now and then, you come across the online dating profile of someone you know, but when that someone you know happens to be someone you’re supposed to be in a relationship with, you can’t help but start questioning the validity of that relationship.
Then you decide whether this is something, and he is someone, you need to worry about.
That's the right way not only because it's fair to him, but also because approaching it with an open mind gives each of you the best chance to see what's actually happening here.
