I’ve Only Been With One Person, Should I Date Other People? – Daily Dilemma [POLL]
The "Daily Dilemma" on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone's problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don't have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can't agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we'd love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.
Here is today's daily dilemma:
I'm 22 years old and I have been with my boyfriend since we were 16. Things are still great between us but there is something bothering me. I don't know if these are my own feelings or just my reaction to what other people say to me. Almost every time someone finds out that Ive only been with one person in my life they say it's crazy and wonder how in the world could I know he is the right person if I've never dated anyone else.
It used to never bother me but lately it has started to make me question things. Like I said, things are great with my boyfriend , he is sweet and supportive. The thing I have started wondering is do we really have that "spark". We are very comfortable and I guess it's because we basically grew up together and part of me really loves that, but I don't know that we have the passion in our relationship that I see my friends have.
Am I crazy? I definitely do not want to do anything to risk losing what could be the love of my life but I am seriously wondering if this feeling of doubt I have been feeling is going to ruin things anyway. Should I just ignore the thoughts and the people who tell me I should date before committing to him? Should I tell him we should take a "break"? Has a break ever really worked for anyone?
