The top 3 rules of casual dating

There are many fun things in life, and as humans we get the revel in them all. Great food, fantastic company, adventures. Different people generally spend different periods of their life exploring different areas of excitement. When you are really young just going to school and hanging out in groups of other people seems like the biggest thing. In their 20’s a lot of people go traveling, and use that time to explore the world and see how different people in different countries all live and work. In their 30’s many people start to really take on work, to push their career and make sure that their financial base is in place… or they so the opposite, they reject it all and go back to traveling and driving fast cars in what is commonly referred to as a “mid-life crisis”. The one thing that we can do for the whole of our lives, is date.

Dating is fun no matter what stage of life you are at, no matter how old you are, or where in the world you are. Everyone likes to date, and everyone likes what that leads to. Sex. Many of us in modern times like to do what we call “casual date”, which is to say date someone but not exclusively. This has many advantages:

  • It takes off all pressure from the dating
  • It increases confidence when dating. If this one doesn’t work out, that’s fine you have another 2 lined up later in the week. What’s not to be confident about?
  • It increases the chance that you are going to meet someone you like. The more people you are open to, the more likely that is to happen.

So what are the basic rules of casual dating if you want to both be good at it, have a great time, and also stay respectful of the people that you are casually dating?


Be honest

Being honest with the people that you are dating is so important, and in fact will lead you to a happier place. When you are honest with them, you quickly come to realise if you actually get on or not. You also ditch the people that you don’t like really fast, saving time to meet someone you do like. It also means that you are going to be sexually compatible. If you like things a certain way in the bedroom, then tell them, or you won’t get it!


Don’t be too honest!

There is an unsaid rule. You both know that you are seeing other people, but there is no need to talk about it. You don’t have to go over it in detail. If it comes up then be honest, but don’t offer information you are not asked for.


Have fun!

Having fun is the golden rule. If there is one thing you have to do, it is have a good time when dating someone casually… because that is the primary purpose. When you are married with kids, perhaps you go through patches of a relationship when it is not fun, but you are held together by a purpose. When you date casually, if you are not having fun, then the other person simply won’t bother seeing you again. So enjoy yourself!
