So, I’m a little scared to jump into this fray, but here goes. I have often made the mistake of putting all my focus on one dating relationship, “forsaking all others,” only to have that be the wrong person, or the person who takes years to commit. I have almost invariably been faithful to whomever I’m focussed on, and the sexual connection keeps me in the relationship too long when there are others who would be a better fit. I don’t have a conclusion, I’m just saying my being a serially monogamous dater has done me as much harm as good. I can’t be the only one with this experience.
