He took me out to a nice restaurant, and everything was wonderful until he admitted that he has a girlfriend, though he explained that they always fight and break up. He said he isn't ready to leave or cheat on her, but he is very attracted to me and wants to keep seeing me platoni- cally to see where our "re- lationship" goes. I believe him but feel like some second option. After din- ner, we ended up making out in his car. Things were going WAY too far, so I had him take me home. I really like him, but I don't want to waste my time wanting someone who already has someone, even if he is "confused" about her. —Disturbed Some men take their monogamy very seriously: "I'm not ready to cheat on my girlfriend. But I might be ready after dessert." Yes, the guy reeled you in like a dazed trout, but you shouldn't feel too bad about that. In addition to his being an experienced 34 to your inexperienced 18, he's also French. If there's a French national sport, it's probably seduc- tion. French seducers are particularly good at roman- tic spin, like how this guy told you he wants to "keep seeing you platonically," which, it seems, is French for "grope you behind the restaurant in a car." The French also tend to be more relaxed about the boundaries of monogamy. In a Pew Research Center poll, when asked whether an affair is "morally unac- ceptable," only 47 percent of French people said it is, compared with 87 percent of Americans. Former French President Francois Mitterrand's wife even invited his mistress to his funeral, where they stood together over his coffin. Still, even in France, there are lines you just don't cross. In the words of actor Yves Montand: "I think a man can have two, maybe three affairs while he is married. But three is the absolute maximum. After that, you are cheating." Unfortunately, you missed your cue to activate the ejection seat — the point at which the guy mentioned having a girlfriend. A guy with a girl- friend is a guy who is not available. Not even if he says they're on-and-off and suggests sampling you as a way of deciding whether they should be off-and-off. The problem is, there's a time when this sort of clar- ity comes more easily, and it isn't when you're in the heat of the moment, having your culottes charmed off by Jean-Claude the Seducer. You need to go into a date with a set of stan- dards — standards you come up with ahead of time for what you will and won't accept. If, for exam- ple, one of these is "Never become somebody's backup sex," it won't mat- ter that the man in question is very attracted to you and says so with a French accent. As France's big gift to the United States, the Statue of Liberty, says on its base: "Give me your tired," not your "tired of their girlfriends." You May Now Miss The Bride My ex-girlfriend and I broke up two years ago, and she's about to marry another guy. I admit that I'm not quite over her, and she knows this, so I'm not invited to the wedding. But we loved each other for many years, so it seems wrong to let such a big life event of hers pass without mention. Do I send a card? A gift? Put in a phone call? —Former Boyfriend When the woman you love is marrying someone else, it's natural to be of two minds — one that says "Call and congratulate her!" and the other whis- pering, "Call in a bomb threat to the church on their wedding day!" Taking the classier ap- proach will actually have benefits for you — even beyond avoiding a lengthy trial and prison time. A growing body of research finds that "walking the walk" — acting the way you'd like to feel — is one of the fastest, most effec- tive ways to change how you do feel. Basically, by acting as if you're over her, you'll help move yourself along to that point. So, yes, write out a congratulatory card. (A gift is unneces- sary, and a call might be uncomfortable, especially if you and she end up play- ing phone tag and her fi- ance notices 26 messages from her ex.) In the card, you can simply say some- thing like, "Wishing you guys all the best on your wedding day and many years of happiness!" Just avoid getting into specifics on the happiness thing, like how you'll always be there for her: "If your hus- band ever finds you in bed with another man, I'd like it to be me."
