Don’t Be Fling Guilty: The Do’s and Don’ts of Casual Dating

Dating in this age can be very stressful. With the expectations constantly changing, it can be a tedious task to keep up. People should be able to enjoy his date’s company without having to worry about how their every action will be interpreted. Mastering the art of dating isn’t as easy as finding someone to date. With the various options of online dating and singles events, it’s possible to casually date someone new on a regular basis.

The Do’s and Don’ts of Casual Dating:

#Do: Be clear and realistic about what you want
Successful daters are those who not only know exactly what they are expecting, but are realistic about themselves and what they’re looking for. List out the qualities and traits you’re looking for in your perfect partner.

# Don’t: Never misrepresent yourself
Never pretend to be something or someone you’re not, in an effort to impress a potential partner. You’re wonderful just as you are and be yourself. Besides, a relationship founded on lies and insincerities will quickly crumble.

# Do: Be a good listener
Quality conversation requires more than just interesting topics; it extends to how you discuss these topics. Avoid any crude or profane language. Make your date feel comfortable talking to you at all times. Take a keen interest in what your date says.

#Don’t: Don’t be critical and judgemental
You owe it to yourself to reduce the volume of your inner critic. You must pay attention to the person you’re on a date with, and then decide for yourself if you’d like to see him or her again. By muting your inner critic, you may just discover you’re a better judge of character.

#Do: Learn your relationship lessons well
Look at your past relationship failures as valuable lessons. These experiences ultimately teach us about our own suppleness, what we’re really looking for in a perfect partner and how we can do better the next time based on our lessons learned.

# Don’t: Don’t carry excess baggage on your date
Nobody in your present dating life wants or deserves to bear the burden of your past relationships. Your relationship history whether good or bad is the past.
