Ok so since Metafilter is so awesome and I always get such amazing advice whenever I ask, I'm turning to you once again with a question on online dating.
After asking this question
about a month ago, I took modernserf's advice and put up a profile on OkCupid.
It was kind of scary, because I received a ton of messages only hours after I put it up, and had to weed through them to see which ones I could respond to.
To make a long story short, after about a week of talking to one guy and really clicking (intellectually) we have been meeting up quite often and actually he's really cool and attractive and super nice and sweet.
The thing is there are a few other nice guys that have messaged me and I've chatted back with them too, it's just that the first message they sent was a few days after the first guy.
So now, little fickle indecisive me is trying to figure out what to do.
Am I allowed to meet up with other guys/girls even though I've clicked really well with that first sweet guy? Am I allowed to meet up just to be friends and have conversations with other people? Will it be rude if I continue the conversations with these guys even though I've kind of met someone special?
I still don't know what I want out of a relationship and have been traumatized with the idea of marriage from all the terribly depressing movies I've seen lately.
Also, I know I'm supposed to be all free and experimenting with sex and all, but I feel quite a sense of dread towards the whole thing---so awkward, you have to be naked, there are weird noises, and all that crap. Also I find it nearly impossible to talk about sex with potential partners---I go silent and am unable to speak, almost. So it's hard for me to express or even figure out for myself, what I want.
So should I just keep meeting up with the sweet first guy? What about that other guy who majored in philosophy and seems really interesting? What about some girls that I might like to meet?
Urggggg, decisions, decisions.
