You do not expect for anything to go right or wrong, you just enjoy the moment and stay or leave whenever you want.
You also get to set mutually agreed upon rules with your date early on because you are both open to define the terms of the relationship together and do not have the baggage of preexisting expectations and assumptions.
That said, relationship statuses even if it says “It’s complicated” should not be declared to the world. Oh, you will melt like popsicles in a desert during summer.
“Expect for the worst and hope for the best” is not only not applicable to casual dating but also the worst rule when it comes to relationships in general.
Expecting for the worse will lower your standards and make you feel like you’ve hit the jackpot even when you are with the most mediocre person you could meet.
You won’t need to do the “front porch test” to a person you’re just “casually dating” anyway, right? Organizing a serious date for the first time takes quite a lot of effort.
So there you have it, be safe, be discrete, do not expect and just enjoy the ride! After all, you really like the person and would like to make that person happy while spending the rest of your life or a part of it with them.
Dating has taken all new types and forms in the last few years and describing what kind of dating you are into has become harder than ever.
The relationship status “It’s complicated” has never been more factual than it is right now.
From friends with benefits, exclusively dating to open relationships, the dating world seems to be more complex than just the courtships and boyfriend-girlfriends relationships of the past.
However, with this drawback comes a whole set of advantages like more options when it comes to dating styles and easier laying out of expectations for both you and the person you are dating.
One of the more popular types of dating we frequently hear about is casual dating.
Casual dating is a term used to describe a sexual or non-sexual relationship wherein both parties are interested in getting to know each other through dates but without the commitment, exclusivity, pressure of taking the next step and the promises that romantic relationships usually come with.
However when it comes to casual encounters and sex dates, things are very different and you people already know what you want from each other.
