There are lots of reasons to choose casual dating. Many people these days lead busy lives that don’t allow for a full-time relationship commitment. You may not be ready to settle down and pick out curtains just yet. You may be fond of travel and want to meet new people in foreign lands without strings attached back home. You may have just left a serious relationship and you’re ready for wild nights on the town.
Yet when you meet those cute singles on the town how can you tell if they are searching for a sure thing or a fun fling like you?
Remember to always discuss your intentions, and be as up front as possible. It may put a damper on the evening to point out to your flirty new friend that you are not open to long-term possibilities. And you will still have to expect hearts to be broken and egos to be stepped on sometimes with casual dating.
Is there any way to reduce the heart ache and trouble when it comes to low-commitment love?
The answer lies online, with casual dating sites set up for singles just like you.
The biggest benefit to using sites centered on casual dating rather than general dating is that each user has the same goal in mind. People looking for serious relationships are not going to have any success on this kind of site. If you are more interested in a solid relationship than a light-hearted dalliance do not make the mistake of signing up on a casual dating site! You are only sowing the seeds for future heartbreak.
It’s always best to go out there with a well-written, honest profile about what you’re looking for and what level of dating you want. Tailor your profile to reflect what you’d like to read in your match’s profile. Let them know if you are looking for a salsa dance partner/friend with benefits!
Show your fun side in your profile! Casual dating is all about fun, so don’t sound like the dullest guest at the party, and make sure you look snappy in your pictures.
Discuss your active hobbies like rock climbing. Talk about how you’d love a partner to climb with and have a picnic together later, but don’t mention roses and champagne or you could be sounding more serious than you mean.
