    Default Practice girlfriend

    OK, as the title says I need help with a practice girlfriend.

    I always thought it was too unethical to have a girlfriend just so you can practice with her so you can get a girlfriend of higher quality. So I finally have a girlfriend (my first because I've been putting it off so long) and now I feel like she likes me a lot even though I screw up a lot while learning the boyfriend ropes. We've been boyfriend/girlfriend for a month so far.

    My question is this: How long should I stay with her? When the time comes to get out of the relationship what should I do? Is it a good idea to do things to force her to break up with me, such as talking nonstop, having her buy things, talk about other girls or what? The town I live in is pretty small so the situation will come back to me.

    do you even like this chick? stay in the relationship if you want to as long as the flame is there, i'm not sure why you would want to not be in a relationship if it's good?

    the best piece of advice i can give is to continue gaming your gf, atleast then if you screw up she won't be so harsh on you and you still get to test routines and such which in turn can be fun for both of you also

    Here's a good example of the difference between ethics and logic - because if one does what is 'ethical' as far as not "dating up" goes, the implication is that you will marry your first gf - illogical.

    My question is this: How long should I stay with her?

    Sup to you man. As long as it takes for you to 'know for sure she isn't the one' or as long as things are fun

    When the time comes to get out of the relationship what should I do?

    Is it a good idea to do things to force her to break up with me, such as talking nonstop, having her buy things, talk about other girls or what?

    It's not. Be direct, open and respectfully honest - but not painfully honest.

    The town I live in is pretty small so the situation will come back to me.
    It won't be a problem if you don't do anything wrong, and there's nothing wrong with a relationship coming to an end. Just don't go making it obvious that she's a practice gf.

    You're playing a very dangerous game my friend. Never a good idea to play with ones emotions as such. Although I do understand your reasoning for experimentation.
    Honestly I think you should end it as soon as possible. You don't really learn much until you meet a woman that you actually do have feelings for. That way you learn what to do EVEN if your consumed with emotions.

    Doing those things could possibly get her to break up with you. However, if she has a low self esteem she may just let you treat her like dirt, which is not good obviously. So it may backfire and you end up with a stalker. Never fun.

    As long as you are sympathetic to a degree, you should be fine simply telling her that you want different things and want to explore your options.

    Bleh, I removed this post. It wasn't helpful, so it wasn't necessary.

    If you want to experiment boyfriend things then casual dates would be a much better idea. You can still practice with talks and holding space and such but once its official then as batman said its a very dangerous game.

    We actually just broke up an hour ago.
    I learned some very important things. But for the sake of compassion, I'll stick with the dating like ID Giaccobbie. Practice dates are far better in almost every respect.
