This is why I chose to do my masters research in the area. In the form of more serious, long term relationships, we avoid "the talk." We silently remove ourselves from the relationship emotionally.
(Ironically, when I was writing the final chapter of my thesis, I got harshly dumped. ) Anyway, ending a relationship — whether it be a casual one or a marriage — is thick with anxiety, guilt, and conflict. We have unenthusiastic sex (or no sex) then lie awake next to them for the remainder of the night. I used to say "I just don't like hurting people." I would then phase people out accordingly or slowly distance myself from them emotionally, which was easier on my conscience but far harder on my exes.
But after the second time of meeting up for casual sex, I realized I could see myself liking this guy.
The main point of it, however, is to keep your options open to meet as many people as you can.
But which are the casual dating rules you have to remember? If you have been on several casual dates already, you might find yourself dating the same type of guys over and over again.
In case you have been talking to a guy you like for a while, you should go ahead and ask for his phone number. Although you might think that this is your type, it is best to experiment with others as well.
It is important to always have some back-ups in case things don’t work out with one of them and naturally you also have the option to date several guys at once. Give a chance to guys with different looks, styles and personalities.
If you are looking for a casual date, you shouldn’t worry about asking for his number. You should consider each date a piece of the puzzle.
