You thought everything was going great with your new date. You've been out a few times and you haven't decided to date anyone else. Then you find out that your date's online dating profile is still active. What the heck? Is your date trying to play you? Should you confront the person and demand to know why they're still playing the field? Before you act, you might want to calm down, take a deep breath, a step back and look at this from another perspective. Let's look at a few reasons why your date might still have an active online dating profile.
Not Yet Sure
One reason why your date might have an active profile is because he or she isn't quite ready to commit. Even though you may be falling for the person, that doesn't meant that they feel the same way. You need to make sure the other person feels the same way you do before you fly off the handle. It may be that you have stronger feelings than your date does. Or, it could be nothing at all.
Forgot To Delete It
One possibility is that your date completely forgot to delete the online dating profile. Let's just say for a moment that your date has been so caught up in the romance you two are sharing that he or she hasn't even logged into the site in question. In that case, you'd be flying off the handle for absolutely no reason. Of course, if you see that your date is actually online when you view his or her profile, it's going to be a little hard to believe that they just forgot. Still, you should give the person the benefit of the doubt. They may have forgotten or they may not have gotten around to it. You should never assume that you're being played, especially if you have begun to like and trust this person with all your heart.
You're Not Married
The fact is, you have no right to tell your date whether or not they should delete their online dating profile. Even if things are going great between you two doesn't mean that things will go right weeks or months from now. Maybe your date is leaving his or her options open. If this is the case, should you tell the other person to delete the profile out of respect? Again, you have no right. The best thing you can do is date the person, vow to have a good time and hope for the best.
If your date hasn't deleted his or her dating profile and you've been dating for some time, you can bring it up but you shouldn't press. Let the other person make their mind up whether or not to delete it. If you force them to get rid of the profile, that could backfire. They might resent you for it. It's best to let the relationship evolve and to trust the other person. If you two are meant to be, your date will get rid of his or her profile in due time. Relationships are based on trust, remember? If you don't trust the other person, you have no business being with them, whether they have an active profile or not.
Once your relationship begins to evolve, you may get asked to move in with your date. Be careful. Are you sure moving in together is a good idea?
