Before you're "boyfriend and girlfriend," it's perfectly acceptable to date other people. But even if you really like someone, it's not uncommon to go through the motions with someone else who you don't fancy all that much — you know, just in case! I like to call that backup plan a "cushion date." While I understand the urge to avert loneliness, some would say dating someone you're clearly not interested in is wrong, so ladies, where do you stand on this subject? Do you think it's OK to "cushion date"?
