It Speeds up the Process of Meeting the Right Person Some people go on a first date and, wow, the magic and the sparks are there immediately.

Similarly, by going on several first dates, you soon learn to be less self-conscious and focus more on how the date is going.

Instead of worrying about what to say, you soon learn how to ask the right questions to help you either find the sparks of chemistry or find out that this person is just not the right one for you.

It Boosts your Self-Confidence and Hones your First-Date Skills We understand why dating different people simultaneously may seem daunting.

It can be nerve-racking to go on a lot of first dates in a row, especially if you’ve been out of the dating scene for a while (or have never really “dated”).

And if you’re looking for commitment and eventually marriage, you probably want to avoid “playing the field” because it seems to trivialize the process of finding something so important in your life.

However, compare the dating experience to looking for a job. Yet revising your résumé, applying at lots of places, and going on multiple interviews helps you to be less nervous each time you’re in a recruiter’s office and teaches you how to sell yourself to potential employers.

Don’t do anything you aren’t sure that both of you are okay with.

If you or your partner don’t feel safe or happy, be open and honest about it, and work with them to resolve the problem.

And since you know you have some other dates lined up soon, the make-it-or-break-it pressure on this specific date simply isn’t there, allowing you to relax a lot more. Right, you’ll be able to pledge a commitment to then date exclusively, in the confident knowledge that this person was better than all the other options.
