Now, ‘no real reason’ seems like the douchiest move in this scenario, as that’s pretty brutal, but hey ho.
Your dating life should be noble, not nefarious, and it is consent that separates the gentleman from a bed-jumping gigolo.
Most importantly, consent spares all parties the turmoil of a secret love triangle gone sour.
Some mates refuse to compromise and share their honeybunch with anyone, and that’s fine; others don’t care or are multi-dating as well, and still others will stick it out for a spell to see if they can win over their reluctant Romeo.
Two particular challenges to be reckoned with: First, the heat from a budding relationship often morphs into a natural desire for exclusivity.
Okay, so what if you match with someone who is already chatting to someone?
In this scenario, you’ll be notified, and they’ll be given the option to match with you instead.On the flip side, if you get another match come through while you’re chatting with, say Sarah, you have to decide whether to stay with Sarah, or kick her to the kerb and match with Danielle.And if you choose to stay with Sarah, then Danielle will get put back in the pile, ready for you to (maybe) match with again when you realise that Sarah is actually a massive racist.Indeed, by expanding your romantic options, multi-dating can loosen up your definition of your type and help you mingle with the vast array of potential mates out there.These days, with high expectations for chemistry and shared interests, some people toss away a good thing because their partner isn’t a 100% perfect match.Now, Ditto’s not out yet, but will launch in the app store before Valentine’s Day, which we’re guessing is a move to cash in on the full desperate force of all the lonely hearts out there.
