After all, it can be difficult to learn anything beyond the superficialities and really get to know a person when you’re devoting your time elsewhere to the other people you’re casually dating.
For example, perhaps you just got out of a long-term relationship and you’re not interested in and/or ready to pursue anything serious with someone new at this juncture in your life.
Whatever the reason, many people are more interested in a casual relationship than they are in something committed or long-term.
The problem is that they often forget that casual relationships require maintenance and effort, the same as a relationship leading towards commitment.
Or maybe you’re just a serial dater; you’re in it for the rush, that new relationship energy, the passion and the thrill of sexual novelty.
Or maybe you’ve decided that you’d rather have a few people you see on a semi-regular basis instead of just one monogamous partner.
