15 Fun First Date Questions That Keep the Conversation Going

The Talk

Dear Sugar
I've been dating this guy for six months and he just sat me down to have "the talk" about where the relationship is going. He is 21 and I'm 18 - I don't have the faintest idea where it's going. All I know it that I like him a lot. But he told me that unless I can commit to him, he won't take his name off of the online dating services he's on. Since that kind of made me angry, I went on the sites to check him out and they all say that he's single. What's up with that? I think I need to break up with him. Do you?

Dear Angry Allie
Yes, I agree- you should break up with him. You are 18, what does he want from you? He's not proposing marriage (thank goodness) and after 6 months he hasn't even taken himself off of the single status on dating services. What a lamo! I guess he's keeping his options open so you should probably do the same. In this instance, breaking up with him is cake, you've got an out. Tell him that you've had fun and that you've figured out where this is going -- nowhere! Wish him success with his online dating search.
