‘I'm dating a guy I really like but am tempted to sleep with someone else’

‘Even though I’m not in an exclusive relationship, I think I’d feel like it was cheating’

Dear Roe,

I’m a 33-year-old gay man, and I’ve been dating a man for three months. It started off casually, but now I really like him. He’s funny and passionate and kind, and we have a very close connection. We chat every day, spend a couple of nights a week together, the sex is great, and I feel like we’re getting close to officially being a couple. We haven’t yet talked about being exclusive, but I haven’t been sleeping with anyone else since the first month, and I don’t think he is sleeping with anyone else.
