If you liked someone and told them so, only to realize that you like this other person that you just met as well, you may not like that first person as much as you think you do.
If that person was someone that you liked above all other, this other person wouldn’t really be a factor.
This means that you are open to liking new people simultaneously.
It can get a little confusing when you think you liked someone only to discover that there is someone else that you just met that you like just as much if not more.
However, it is not uncommon.
Human beings are very capable of liking more than one individual at one time.
This is part of what makes the human capacity to love or attract so distinct.
You may simply like these two individuals equally.
Since you haven’t been taught or shown that this is indeed possible, you may assume that you are doing something wrong.
As a person, you can like a number of individuals at the same time.
It could be more than one. It could be multiple.
The real test lies in what you really want.
If you are seeking a serious relationship, you are better off being with that person that you know will accept your faults and will be able to get along with you even in the most trying times.
Hence, a strong individual you know that will stick it through is your best option.
If you merely want to have some short-term fun, you would be better off with the person that doesn’t seem to care about what come’s next.
They are spontaneous.
Hence, they are really exciting.
If you told this other person that you like them but now you have met someone else, you shouldn’t misrepresent your true intentions.
In other words, avoid making this other person feel like they are your only dating prospect.
If you give them the impression that they are your only dating prospect, they may begin to develop affection for you that may make it that much harder for you to date other people with a clear conscience.
In essence, you should always be honest about your intentions and where you stand.
You don’t have to get into the details about this other person that you just met, however, you do have to be clear that there are other people in the picture.
This really allows you to set the tone in your relationships with these two individuals.
If you can set the tone, you alleviate a lot of pressure.
If you were to go out on a date with one of them, you are not doing so with a sense of guilt or confusion.
This really helps you mentally.
It gives you an opportunity to get to know these two individuals on a more profound level so that you can ultimately make an informed and educated decision about who you would most prefer dating for a long-term or short-term relationship.
