Casual dating sex
While this can extend to casual sex, it's more about the seriousness of the relationship than whether the parties are engaging in sexual intercourse.
Even when I tried to keep things casual, I would rapidly find myself ass-deep into another capital R Relationship—again.
If you have the same tendency as me—to get very legit with someone real quick—you don't have to stay that way. I say "date" in a deliberate way because I mean the casual, lower-case "d" kind of dating.
dating (sic) is still super fun and you shouldn't have to miss out on the chill variety it offers just because you have a track record of Relationships with very little time in between.
A couple can go on like this for a while, or the relationship between them can turn more serious, sometimes without their intention or expectation.
Before a couple even flirts with the idea of a casual relationship, they must communicate their intentions with one another to avoid any misunderstandings.
