So freedom from the rules, no expectations, and you can date as many people as you want… sounds perfect, right? For some people maybe! But the truth is it isn’t for everyone. Maintaining a happy no-strings-attached romance is trickier than it may seem.
1. State your intentions and boundaries
We recommend both parties state their intentions and boundaries early on. That way everyone’s on the same page. This doesn’t need to be a serious conversation, but it should be honest. Clearing up these question marks may seem a little boring, but it’ll ensure you’re both in this for the right reasons.
2. Respect each other
Probably the most important rule of a casual relationship, or any relationship for that matter, is to be respectful. No matter how informal things may be, your casual partner may not want to hear the details of how things are going with your other dates. And that’s fine!
3. Steer clear of jealousy
Feeling jealous from time to time is natural. But when you’re in a casual relationship, it’s important to not let those feelings get the best of you. Realize that this is part of the agreement you’ve made. If you’re someone who is easily jealous, then it’s likely that this kind of relationship isn’t the one for you.
4. Communication is key
For a casual relationship to succeed, there needs to be open communication… and lots of it! Poor communication can cause trouble in any relationship, but especially in a casual one where boundaries aren’t automatically clear. Asking yourself and each other these questions won’t just make sure you continue to have fun, it’ll also stop anyone from getting hurt.
