Dating more than one man at a time
This has changed now that she has started seeing someone she really likes, but until recently, I encouraged her to keep seeing this other, duddier guy throughout, just so she wouldn’t concentrate all of her anxieties on one dude.
I advised her not to put all of her dating eggs in one basket, if you will.
I know how borderline insane that sounds, but I did that too when I was single: About six months after a long relationship ended, I dated two men, a professor and a crazy person, basically on two opposing sides of the spectrum, for about a month simultaneously. I knew I wasn’t serious about both, didn’t get hung up on either, and walked away bruise-free.
Of course, once I met someone stellar, I stopped with the two-timing and focused my energy on one wonderful man.
I’ve watched her go through all of the phases I went through when I was freshly out of a long-term relationship: thinking about dating; dating; embarking on a dating freeze; swearing off dating forever, with and without a solemn oath; and trying on every state in between.
I’ve also noticed that she’s happiest when she’s dating a couple of people at once.
One way we do this is by blaming others and their actions for how we are feeling.

Keep it casual Rotational dating doesn't mean you have to sleep with everyone.
It simply means continuing to see other men for harmless cinema and lunch dates, till one man from your rotation majorly steps up and asks you for your full commitment. Keep the faith“In my personal experience (I attracted my husband while rotational dating),” Sami said, "and in the experience of my clients, a man who really wants you will move mountains to be with you, and will not be deterred by the fact that he's got some competition.
If your partner’s actions are causing you to be unhappy, and you’ve exhausted all other options (talking openly and honestly with them, and seeking help), then you should end the relationship.
My best friend has been single for the past six months, after being in a relationship for five years.
