Just dating or boyfriend

23-Feb-2018 08:52

If you’re struggling with this, here’s a short list to help you go from a casual date to a serious mate (so lame, I know).

1) Be Independent Some “experts” say you should act unavailable.

Holding off to avoid judgement is ridiculous – how can two people have sex at the same time but only one of them does it too soon?

Any guy who loses interest in you for having casual sex “too soon” is not worth having around.

Sure, acting unavailable might work at the casual dating stage, but what happens after that? Learn an instrument, a language, or take dancing lessons. 2) Set Boundaries Why would someone commit to you if they’re getting everything they want without the commitment?

How long before insecurities, neediness, and jealousy creep in? If you’re struggling to find people willing to move beyond casual dating, there’s a good chance you’re giving too much.

It’s true that being overly available can seem desperate or unattractive, but the last thing you want to do is play dating games.

If you’re suffering from no-life syndrome, step back and ask yourself why you aren’t having fun on your own. Play the sport you like or pursue one of your interests. Insecure people push for serious relationships for the security it brings, and people can sense that.

The Big One: Your First Fight If you have a fight and you don’t break up, you’re basically saying this is something worth working on.

Meeting Friends Meeting each other’s social group is a big step.

If you make it past the gauntlet of scrutiny from their friends, things are well on their way.

If you drift apart, you know they were never going to commit and you saved yourself time, trouble, and heart ache.

Q: My date says it’s just casual, but acts like it’s serious?
