My boyfriend and I have been going out for a couple of years. This is my first time dating anyone and I want to date other men too, but my boyfriend is really serious about me and I don’t want to hurt him.
Queenie, I don’t want to break up with him but I want to see other men too. How can I tell him?—Dissatisfied girlfriend
Tell him (if he does not already know) that you were inexperienced when you started dating him and now you would like to have the experience of spending time with other men too.
Hopefully he will be willing to share you with other men on a dating basis and to see how this all works out in the end. If he is not, you will have to decide what is more important to you, being with this man or seeing who knows how many (or how few) others.
