Dating : Is being 100% open and honest when starting dating a bad thing?
I know with 100% certainty there is a woman who wants me. As best as I can understand, she would ideally be looking for something long term. I 100% do not want her long term, but I am desperately lonely. There is also another woman I 100% do want, but she is currently dating someone else, and even when she was single, she wasn’t interested in me at all. The situation with woman 2 is massively frustrating for both of us, and we both are miserable by it (part of the reason I’m debating going for the first one).
I’m not opposed to telling the woman who wants me that I know it wouldn’t work out, and that we would only be dating or in a relationship until we each find someone else. That way, she wouldn’t get all upset 8 months later and post a bunch of stuff about how men are trash, she wasted her time, etc. My best friend though tells me that’s a bad idea, and that’s something that I should just keep a secret if I do pursue her.
