This weekend I’ve agreed to go on a date with a guy I’ve dated a few times before, and the next night, to date another guy that I also like—and have for months. Later I agreed to go on a date with yet another guy. Is this wrong? Should I date them one at a time? I don’t want to hurt them but I don’t really know whom I like more. What should I do?

A You’re dating them, not marrying them! If only more girls learned to test the waters and keep their options open in an honest and straightforward way. The fact is when you start dating someone, you hardly know him. You get to know him a little bit on your date. If all goes well on the first date, you try a second one, and so on.
So go out on all your dates. Pay attention to how each guy treats you. Does he ask you questions about your likes and dislikes or does he just ramble on about himself? Does he make you feel comfortable or invisible? Do you feel safe with him or is he a bit creepy? They could all be great or they could all be duds. Don’t settle for less than what you want. Make them impress you and may the best boy win!
