7 Rules of a Casual Relationship

altWith changing times and changing lifestyles, more and more couples are choosing relationships that are easy on the heart and for the most part convenient.

People going down the ‘forever together’ path are limited and if at all they do venture down that road, there is inevitably a pre-nuptial involved.

While commitment and long term relationships have their benefits, casual relationships are here to stay. But being in a casual relationship does not mean you can get away with anything and that you can take it all for granted. Here are seven rules that need to be adhered to when you are in a casual relationship.

1. Know what you are getting into

You need to have a crystal clear idea of what you are getting into. A casual relationship is one which will not allow you the comfort of commitment, there are risks involved and you might get hurt. So make sure you know what you are getting into before you take the plunge.

2. Boundaries

The most important thing in a casual relationship is boundaries. You need to draw them and understand how far you can go and till how far you will let her in. Boundaries need to be drawn in terms of your sexual encounters, how often you will hang out together and if you should make your relationship public or not.

3. Protection

Not just when it comes to sex, but you need to protect yourself from heartbreak and unnecessary emotional drama. Make sure you’ll are on the same page and that neither of you end up hurting one another.

4. Honesty

You need to be absolutely clear about what you want and what you expect. There is no point in beating round the bush. Also, what you need and want should be expressed explicitly and with 100% honesty to your partner.

5. Respect

Even if the relationship is casual, it won’t work if you don’t respect one another. You’ll have made the decision of getting into a casual relationship willingly, so it only makes sense that you would respect each other’s choices and decisions.

6. Don’t involve family

This could create unnecessary havoc and complications. You don’t have to involve your family in your personal dating life. If your mother gets whiff of what you are up to, you can be assured of drama, tears, disappointment and then some.

7. Self-worth

You don’t have to compromise on your self-worth. If you feel this casual dating experience is draining you and is getting to demanding then you need to get out of it as soon as possible. Nothing is more important than your self-worth, remember that.
