4 Tips for Maintaining a Healthy Casual Relationship
Date posted: 16/11/15
Casual relationships are quite common today… and why not? Just as other concepts that have previously been taboo – such as experimenting sexually or hiring a model escort – have become more widely accepted, so too has the idea of the non-committal coupling. With all the physical benefits of a girlfriend or boyfriend without the emotional pressure of a traditional relationship, it’s not hard to see why lots of people are having a go at this relaxed approach to connecting. However, these relationships often hit bumps because the people in them don’t realise that they still need maintenance. Here are four tips to keep in mind when embarking on a casual romance.
1. Agree on Clear Boundaries
Your ideas about what is acceptable in a casual relationship could be very different to your partner’s. Because of this, it’s essential that you are both in agreement on what the rules and boundaries of your arrangement are. Are you allowed to sleep with other people? Can you invite each other to family functions? Do they want to have intimate conversations outside of the bedroom? While the answers to these questions might seem obvious to you, your partner may not feel the same. A straightforward discussion about your boundaries as a pair is the best way to get things off to a good start.
2. Be Honest and Open
Honesty and transparency are the best policies in a casual relationship – as well as just about any other relationship. The minute you start hiding things and going behind each other’s back is the minute your relationship becomes rocky. Not all conversations are easy to have, but the toughest ones are usually the most important. For example, if your feelings for your partner have become more (or less) serious, it’s better to bring this up sooner than later so that things don’t spiral beyond your control.
3. Keep It Casual
Sounds really obvious, right? The fact is, it can be quite tricky to keep things light in a casual relationship. The line between what is ‘just fun’ and what is ‘serious relationship stuff’ is often blurry, which is why the boundaries from tip #1 are so important. Take care to avoid occasions or scenarios that you would consider essential elements or milestones of a serious commitment, such as spending a day with their family, celebrating anniversaries, or making wedding plans.
4. Don’t Obsess about Maintaining It
When it comes right down to it, one of the best things about a casual relationship is that you don’t have to worry too much about it. It’s fun, it’s easy, and when it’s time for you or your partner to move on, there’s no drama. If you find yourself constantly worrying about whether your arrangement is working or not, you might need to consider if it’s even fulfilling its purpose anymore.
