Looking to settle a debate between myself and a few friends - at what point is it appropriate to ask someone you’re dating if they’re also dating other people? Relatedly, do you have an obligation to tell whoever you’re dating that you’re dating other people?

Should feel natural but if you had to define it maybe after a few times of sleeping together?

I asked on my second date. We had great first date though.

I had this same question recently. A guy I dated a while ago broke it off with me but then was blindsided when I said I was also seeing someone else. He couldn’t believe it, even though he had told me he’d dated multiple people at the same time in the past 🤷‍♀️ I don’t believe there’s an obligation but if I sensed it was getting serious with someone I would either let them know the situation or just break it off with the other(s)

Hi Fishes,
I am having 4.6 + years of experience as a Manual test engineer and already frustrated with it.
