“[It's] about weighting your options instead of driving yourself nuts and obsessing over just one man. Not investing all your time, energy, and emotions into any single man, no matter how much he’s convinced you he’s Mr. Fabulous can have its benefits. You simply don’t have time to fret about how much time he’s fretting about you if you’re simultaneously dating Mr. Semi-Fabulous and Mr. Just-Okay, too.”Just this once, I decided to bend “the rules.” I decided that I would try something other than the rigid courtship structure being dictated by youth groups. I decided to slightly venture away from the “blueprint” being offered by Christian relationship experts. I decided that with God’s guidance, I’d establish my own personal truths. I chose to give all three guys an opportunity to get to know me in a non-sexual way. I allowed myself to get to know them in a pressure-free, emotionally-safe way. And can I be honest? I’m having a blast. The pressure is off. I’m enjoying getting to know people. I’m fun. I’m relaxed. I’m not sabotaging myself by prematurely setting expectations or becoming emotionally attached to any one guy. I don’t have any grand success stories to give you as of yet, but what I can say is that I’m successfully getting to know a few really great guys. My emotions aren’t scrambled. My judgement isn’t fogged or clouded with intense feelings, and I can make sound decisions with a clear head. I’ll hold on to my recommendations until I’ve explored this all a little bit more, but from the looks of it, date three (or more) to “find” the one may prove to be a success. What do you think? Should Christian women consider seeing more than one man at a time before choosing to make a commitment? Follow Jazmine on Twitter @jazminedenise.
