Non exclusive dating
Maybe you just need to (wo)man up, let what’s happening happen, and give it the title that it deserves.Until then, we hope you enjoy your stay in Non-BF land.
He’s not looking for a girlfriend, so essentially he’s not looking to date other people and therefore doesn’t have to change anything in his dating behavior. It’s ok, we all make dumb choices every once and again. He’s your Non-BF because you see him more than anyone, and know that even though there will be others in the dating game, at the end of the day, he’s the one you’re going home with (more often than not.) But it doesn’t matter, because nothing will come of the No Strings Attached relationship, and you both know this going in.
You are now in a limbo where you aren’t his girlfriend but agreed to exclusivity and have changed YOUR dating behavior extremely. But essentially, in this case, this boy is your Non-BF. This can be fun and amazing, but tricky and dangerous, too.
And even though my friends and the media, including Ryan Seacrest, have referred to him as my boyfriend. You don’t have to let the world know what type of Non-BF your current Non-BF is.
Since I was introduced to the term by an old roommate, I’ve called every guy I’ve dated for more than a few dates, my “Non Boyfriend” (Non-BF), partially because I just didn’t know whether it would be okay for me to call them my boyfriend, and also because I am a commitment-phobe and never know whether or not I actually WANT to call someone my boyfriend, even if they are. In fact, using the term loosely is sort of the point.
I understand he has women "friends" as he has a life other than me. You can not be romantic with them, sexual with them, lie about them to your partner or hide the relationship, or prevent them from knowing or meeting the person you are exclusive with.
