Dating two guys who are friends
At most, it is a reliable source of advice for women who want to improve their chances with the opposite sex.While explaining her relationship with a guy she is interested in, a reader who recently wrote to me for advice reminded me of the difference between the typical male and female approach to being "friends with benefits": I guess we're friends with benefits because there's no commitment on both parts.So every time she'd bring up our future together, it felt like she was jumping the gun," he says.

Every guy's definition of enough is different, so there's a chance he wrote you off just because you didn't come late enough on his own personal hit list.
The moral of the story: Until we grow up, mark everything off our sexual checklists or have too many friends convince us that we can't do better than you, the flight risk is real.
