The Don’ts of Casual Dating

When you decide to have a casual relationship, then you ought to work by the rules of such kind of dating. No strings attached relationships are basically all about sex and getting it down, but unfortunately there is a very thin line between keeping it casual and developing feelings for the person you are with especially if they are of good character. Before you enter into casual dating, you should clearly understand what you do and things that you should never do to keep it as casual as it should be.

Don’t date someone you closely know

It may not be advisable to hook up with strangers randomly when it comes to dating but then again, you do not want to have such a steamy affair with some you know from the past or from somewhere. It will not be easy to maintain the relationship when you share a past and you could end up becoming emotionally attached. It is best that you choose a new person who can help you get over loneliness, breakup or depression without any possible complications.

Don’t get emotionally involved or attached

This is something that most people in casual dating struggle with. You should always remember that the relationship is strictly NSA and as so it should remain. This means you there is no room for you to get jealous when they flirt with others or when they do things without telling you. You should also not feel concerned about how their day is going and whether they are fine. Never fall into the temptation of calling or stopping by to find out how they are unless you both are on for another steamy session as agreed.

Don’t use or overuse the word love

Love as a word is tricky and you want to avoid it every way possible when you are in a casual relationship so you do not end up confusing your sex buddy and getting all twisted in your head. When you keep talking about what you love about your partner then you will definitely make things very awkward between you this is something you do not want to happen. You have no obligation towards your casual partner and you can terminate the relationship whenever you want without tears and heartbreak. Strive to keep it that way.

Don’t go for random people

In as much as you do not need to get every detail regarding the person you are about to get involved with, you still want to choose someone you get along with someone who does not have any crazy behaviors such as violence. Start by making sure that they want the same arrangement as you do and use reliable casual dating sites to get your partners from. It is also advisable that you spend a little time together in public before you hit the sheets. The meetings should not be treated as dates but rather occasions to understand whether you are with the right person for the expected sexcapades.

There are so many things that need to be avoided when it comes with no strings dating. Casual dating site will make it easier for you to find the right partner for your desires.

Best Things About Having a Boyfriend

Getting to physically express love is one of the best things about having a boyfriend; no more hookups with random guys to satisfy your craving. You get opportunities to – wear sexy lingerie, kiss him passionately (whenever, wherever), maintain a sexy body, go for bike rides hugging him like cling film, and get intimate with someone you care about. Nothing beats the magical moment when you make passionate love, cuddle each other, and lovingly look into each other’s eyes.

We are all flawed humans, and need someone to vent our frustration. One of the perks of having a boyfriend is that you don’t need to have pent-up emotions; you can come home, tired, on a Friday evening, after facing a bad day and an irritated boss, and have someone to release your emotions. He will be matured enough to understand that you need to throw a few tantrums to feel at peace. Conversely, you must do the same for him.

Your parents will be over the moon that you are at least seeing someone. Speaking of family, one of the pros of having a boyfriend is that he’ll help you survive all through elaborate, traditional family dinners.

He’ll always lend you a hand. For everything. You have someone to share takeouts with, to carry heavy stuff around, to fix things inside the house, and the like. You can be sure that your man will willingly function as a part-time plumber, mechanic, electrician, dance partner, and everything else for you, including paying bills and handling your expenses. That said, do not take advantage of his chivalrous nature; acknowledge what he has done, and contribute your bit too.

Do every little thing together. Take photographs. Go for a ride. Go apple-picking and wine tasting. Like each other’s pictures. Spend important days together. Have couples’ costumes for festivals. Go for picnics by the lake. Be domestic. Cook for each other. Watch movies. Read books. Make out in the rain. Play games. Show each other off to friends. Spend quality time. Wear his shirt. Zip her dress. Talk. Understand. Fight. Makeup. Kiss. Just have fun.

Experience companionship. Be together.

He will love you despite everything. You can be embarrassing, not wax your hands, and talk about idiotic stuff. But, he’ll still pay attention to you, give you presents, hold your hand, tell you that nothing can keep the two of you apart, whisper sweet nothings, and make you blush. He is your boyfriend because he cares for you. You know he truly loves you beyond your body. And, it’s a blessing to trust him, to love him.

Ways to End a Love Triangle

Are you in love with another man or woman while still being in a relationship with someone? The obvious consequences are an unhappy relationship, adultery and three broken hearts. Quoting the character Earl Smooter from the movie Sweet Home Alabama, “You can’t ride two horses with one ass, sugarbean”. You know you are in a love triangle when you have two suitors of whom there is a preference for one over the other OR when your beloved is in love with someone else. A romantic relationship involving three people can get very messy. You may be in someone’s life and you may have deep admiration and fondness for them. But, you cannot continue this forever. Do you know how to get out of such a situation? Maybe you don’t. Love does switch off a part of your brain and everything becomes so complicated and confusing. It is okay if you don’t know what to do, which is why I have explained the solution from the shoes of all three sides of the triangle.

When You are the ‘Other’ Person

It is always difficult to be the other woman or man in your lover’s life. You don’t enjoy the rights that you should as a partner. Your love gets no acknowledgment before the world. You have to keep it all under the sheets and then even share the love with someone else who rightfully claims their ownership over your lover’s heart. Love makes us do crazy things… even willingly being the ‘other’ person. But, you need to get out of it with or without your lover. Else you will forever be stuck in a rut. Ending such a relationship is not so easy but you need to tell your lover that they can only be on either side. Tell them to either choose you or go back to where they came from. It’s about time you claim what is yours and what you deserve. And once you have made the decision to leave, stay determined because a fickle mind is a battle lost. The grief of separation will be present but if you truly promise to recuperate, you will find yourself in no time in the arms of a lover who respects and loves you unconditionally. You just need to believe in yourself and stop letting your insecurities prevent you from achieving the happiness that you deserve.

When You are in Love with Two People

Are you in love with two people? That is such a complicated situation. You are not with this one completely and you are not with that one either. What are you doing? Being in love with two people is like keeping your heart in a love limbo, a place where you will never be able to move on and enjoy a relationship, be with someone and be sure of it. You are preventing all three of you from moving on. The attention of two lovers is exciting but it serves no good when you cannot fully commit to even one. Not to forget, the guilt of it all that prevents you from having a healthy relationship with either of your lovers. Even if you are secretly in love with the second person and he/she does not know it, don’t even tell. You need to get that person out of your thoughts. Out of sight, out of mind. This is easier than you think it is because every person can control his/her mind. If you cannot, you will remain helpless. You have to choose either of the two people and then decide to be with one of them. Time mends everything and you will see that with time, you will be over the other person before you even know it.

When You are in Love Outside Your Relationship

Even when the general perceptions are that a person cannot fall in love with two people at the same time, our cinema is full of movies based on such themes and circumstances. It does happen in real life too. If you are the person in love with two people, you know it definitely does! It is a love addiction. So, how are you going to get out of this love triangle? You need to make a decision. You are essentially cheating on both your partners and in the process, hurting all three of you. Those who know, may think you are lucky to deserve the love of two people, but, inside your heart you know the complication of your actions that may rock your life, like an explosive storm suddenly, any day. Aren’t you just tired already of shuttling and hiding your affair? The tension of getting caught may be giving you the thrills, but you cannot act so selfishly especially towards the people you love. You have to let one of them go, don’t delay that decision. Now is the time, not later. You will end up hurting one of them but at least you will let them go and get the love of one person wholly.

You may make your choices based on the circumstances in your life. You love both of them but, now, you will have the chance to give all your love to one person just the way they give it to you. Stick to your decision and vow never to repeat your mistake again. Love affairs can turn very ugly and end up in grotesque crimes. Get out of it before it comes and gets you!

When You Find Out about your Partner’s Infidelity

Nothing can kill you more than knowing that the one you love so dearly is not even in love with you. Worse, he/she loves someone else. You may feel betrayed and foolish. What are you going to do now about this situation? The best thing to do is to accept the truth and confront your partner on it. If you keep mum about it or pretend to be blind, you will make yourself fall harder into a pit of pain. You will also unwillingly encourage your partner to continue with such kind of behavior. Are you willing to stay in this relationship and make it work? Then, first, ask your partner what he/she wants. Give them an ultimatum that you expect their answer by a certain period. Give yourself time too and do not communicate. If you want to work it out, do not admit unless your partner does and tells you that they are willing to mend their ways. Start afresh. Is that not the option for you? Vent your anger on him and express your disappointment, then, try to get over the breakup.
It is not easy ending a romantic relationship which involves three people, but you will thank yourself later and live happily after, minus a third person. You will breathe a sigh of relief. Nobody wants to be in such a love turmoil because then it starts messing with your head and your life. You will never be truly happy from the inside because there will only be short-lived and fleeting moments of happiness. Ultimately, your inner voice will haunt you until you get yourself out of it and never go back.
