You’d much rather keep things casual, and continue having a fun time with no strings attached. Granted, it doesn’t always happen—sometimes you can hook up with a girl for months and months and still avoid it. I used to have A LOT of trouble with this conversation. Not only is this routine great for forming fuck buddy relationships—it can also be the difference between whether you sleep with a girl the first night (if you use it correctly).But other times, a girl will want to know the answer before you even hook up with her. I didn’t know how to explain that I wanted to keep things casual, without upsetting the girl. In fact, it’s worked for me almost every time I’ve used it—and my friends have had the same results. Here’s how it works: You: “You seem like a very ‘all or nothing’ kind of girl.” Her: “Yeah I guess you could say that.” You: “I used to be like that.” (This next part is KEY.) You: *Raise your hand at about neck level* “If you think about relationships, and you say up here is a long-term relationship, with full commitment.” *Put other hand a foot below the top hand* “…and down here is just a one-night stand, where there is no emotional involvement at all.Well, this area between the two…” *Point to the area between your hands* “…is a grey area full of all sorts of interactions and relationships that two people can have. They’re never something positive, unless we’re talking about last names.And we all know that goes for only one man, and he happens to be fictional.The last time I saw him, I asked him if we could define our relationship. I decided that everything was probably okay until yesterday when my brother went to a coffee shop and saw him with another girl.
To give a personal example: my wife and I had our DTR conversation the third time she came to visit…
Every time I date a nice guy, especially if I like him, I feel so insecure and wonder, what if he’s dating someone else at the same time?
Just last month, I met a cute guy and we went out and had so much fun together. Now it’s been a month and we’ve gone out four times.
In casual dating, it can be hard for both men—and women—to determine what type of relationship they are in.
Here are a few tell-tale signs that it isn’t casual anymore or that person wants to be exclusive. They stay for breakfast Given that you want them there. They know your friends (or at least roommates names) Showing an interest in your life means that your partner cares about being a part of it. They do thoughtful things You told him/her that you were sick and they brought you a care package. You post pictures of your outings on Facebook Clearly you aren’t ashamed or trying to limit the social media footprint of your relationship.
