I think the bottom line is that I probably just can’t handle casual/ expiration date type of dating, if this is what it is. I don’t think it’s unrealistic to think that people who are casually dating can see each other once a week or more.
In fact, I would say that that is the norm for casual daters.
I am looking for a serious relationship, but still have fun with him.The first few months of dating can be considered casual, because the direction up ahead is still unclear.But what makes a relationship turn from casual into committed? Within a few months, the very nature of a relationship turns from casual into committed.Although I usually have a good idea about what can be done…I am lost with this one and can’t seem to come up with any answers.Yet he’s never made anything official, so I know he’s not my boyfriend.But I don’t want to be doing the casual dating thing six months from now—I want a committed relationship with him. My mom says don’t bring it up and just let him take things at his own pace.I was wondering if you had any ideas or experience with this.Questions: How can a girl change the status of her relationship from casual to committed without making her guy feel that he is being pressured into it?At this point we’re only seeing each other once every other week, and almost three weeks had passed before our most recent date. Is it even worth it to continue dating him at all then, or am I just being unrealistic expecting that people that are just casually dating could still see each other once a week?I’m curious to know how do fellow online daters define casual dating or as Ok Cupid likes to call it, short-term dating?
