He Doesn't Want A High-Five

About the author:
Alli is not an expert at dating. Most of what she says is a result of what she sees around her. She writes what she sees going on and what she feels needs to be said. Sometimes she'll be sardonic, bitter, or cynical and other times she'll be downright insightful. She likes to think of herself as a relationship genius. Others might disagree, but they don't run this site.

HowAboutWe: 7 Types of Non-BFs

The “I Don’t Want A GF But I Don’t Want You To See Other People” Non-BF

You like this guy. He likes you. He tells you that he wouldn’t be comfortable dating you if you were seeing other people. In a wave of feeling agreeable, you say ‘ok, sure’. The problem? 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. You are now in a limbo where you aren’t his girlfriend but agreed to exclusivity and have changed YOUR dating behavior extremely. This will prove to be very inconvenient and annoying when he lives his life normally, and you have to curb yours by not going on dates with other people — even though he’s not giving you the attention you should probably be getting from the people you would be going on dates with (who you can’t go on dates with because you agreed not to see other people). This will be short-lived. This is a stupid idea. Why would you enter into such an agreement?!? It’s ok, we all make dumb choices every once and again. But essentially, in this case, this boy is your Non-BF.
