I was recently in a string of long-term relationships with out much casual dating in between.
The most recent included a terrible break up so I plan to stay single for a while but am not opposed to casual dating or sex… however it’s not something I have a lot of experience in yet.
I recently asked a male friend of mine to go on a date with me at some point in the future and he was pretty disinterested and said he doesn’t really do “dates”. We never did go on a date but we have had sex a few times. I enjoyed myself and while I wished for more of a romantic connection – I knew it was unlikely to happen so I contented myself with sex and friendship. However lately he has been talking about dates, crushes and other fuck buddies when I’m in ear shot and I feel a little hurt. I have other dates and fuck buddies as well I just felt it was rude and inconsiderate to discuss them with or in front of the others. Am I right?
If so, how do I let him know it bothers me with out coming across as jealous?
