“Here are three reasons why. One, I don’t multi-date. I can’t multi-date. If I’m dating someone, I won’t keep sweeping, looking for the next best one. thing. You have my attention,” the woman added.


Charlotte said she thought the multiple encounters created a competitive situation, in the context of a potential relationship.

“I don’t talk to multiple people, and putting that in a form of competition, that’s not my style, I can’t do that,” she said.

Adding, “Secondly, I’m not a ghost. Why? Because I’m an adult. And I can actually have a conversation and clearly explain how I feel.”

For her final point, Charlotte says she refuses to play mind games, but feels that this choice puts her in the minority.
