As a general rule of thumb, casual relationships are more relaxed; there’s usually less emotional investment and less involvement.Some relationships are strictly sexual while others are more companionable, but still without the expectation that they’re leading somewhere.Not having any strings isn’t a license to be an asshole or a player or to coast along past any misunderstandings or miscommunications. It’s important to establish from the outset that this is a casual arrangement and that of you are expecting more out of it.Depending on the personalities involved, this may be something as simple as saying “you know this isn’t serious, right?
If you’re in a casual relationship, you should consider keeping more towards activity dates, especially ones that get you charged up – going dancing, for example, or playing pool.
It’s easier to keep a certain amount of distance when you’re keeping the conversational topics to surface level engagement, talking about TV, books, movies, travel and the like.
Think of it as though you were having a conversation during a night out with friends – you generally don’t get deeply personal when you’re out on the town with your buddies.
The people who do this are pustules on the collective ass of humanity who make it harder for the good-faith horndogs of the world and who deserve the wank-storm of karma that comes their way. The point of a casual relationship is that it’s supposed to be fun and easy-going.
It’s about the thrill of the new coupled with the ability to seek out what the world has to offer without being tied down by obligations or expectations to any one person.
