Casual Dating Meets Serious Relationship: Steps to Take to Avoid Getting in Too Deep
“I want you to meet my parents.” Said the person you’ve been casually dating for months. You know the individual you hit up for a late night booty call, or that person listed in your phone contacts by your favorite feature of theirs like “badonkadonk”. So what do you do when the two of you are riding scooters down Causal Lane, and while you run out of gas, the other makes a left down Serious Avenue?
Here are 5 steps to consider before getting in too deep:
Be Honest from the Beginning…
… or at least by your second encounter with them.The number one rule in casual dating is to be clear with your intensions from the start. If she is looking to be serious, then this “badonkadonk” you can forget about getting all up in. Just don’t even pursue if you’re both not on the same page… there are other booties in the club.
Understanding the others boundaries of when and where the casual interaction happens is a must to avoid any miscommunications.
Stop When You Should
It’s ok to be selfish and I think most people have a hard time with that truth during casual dating. If you’re not feeling it anymore, call it off. Don’t worry about the other person’s emotions or how Coco the puppy might feel if you don’t come around anymore. Think about the emotional investment and your own sanity before it’s too late.
It’s Better in Numbers
I’m not promoting hoeness (ok maybe I am), but in all honesty we’re talking about casual dating. If you only have one “Badonkadonk” then what you have is a girlfriend. Your contacts should also include a “big tittie blonde” and a “dark chocolate curves”. Explore. Enjoy. When you work in groups no one will feel left out and it won’t get too intimate.
Know IT IS OK to be Single
Find yourself. Be Ms. Independent. When you’re not looking for someone to relay on, your heart won’t get broken. Focus on YOU first and then you will know when you find Mr. Right.
