In summary- I'm getting to know more than one lady at the same time.
In my defense- I've clarified that I don't want to move beyond friends for a good, personal, temporary reason. I also, as online dating, make contact with many ladies, especially because I don't know who will respond, nor when, and I do not want to take forever to respond back to them if I'm only getting to know one at a time.
Why I might be wrong- it can hurt when a lady finds out that I'm talking to more than one, and I want to do my part to guard their hearts, but since the subjects we talk about are still the same we would talk about if we were getting to know each other as more than friends, I could be seen as leading on all the ladies that eventually I do NOT become more serious with.
Please discuss, and maybe convince me that my approach is wrong (and I don't think it is while online dating), OR, convince any lady that my approach is okay, and that even if it hurts her to know I'm talking to more than one, I am not wrong to approach this the way that I am when I've clarified that I want to be friends first.
Thank you in advance for responding to my serious question!
