Why Casual Relationships Are Better Than Serious Ones

Serious relationships can be amazing. You have someone you love, trust, and can lean on for anything. They make you feel secure and act as your escape from everything.

The bad news is, once it ends it’s awful. Breakups are one of the worst things to go through, especially if the relationship was serious.

So many younger people today don’t even bother with serious relationships unless they know they want to marry them.

Instead, a lot of 20 something­year­olds are opting for a better option: a casual relationship.

Why is it better? You’re a lot less invested. Less investment means less feelings, less time and less commitment, and less hurt when it ends.

A lot of people who are busy­ especially with their careers­ refrain from dating because they feel like they don’t have the time to commit to a serious relationship. They feel like it’s not fair to themselves or their potential partner to half­ass a relationship. Relationships become somewhat of a hassle.

Unfortunately, sometimes these people can stay out of the dating scene for so long because they just get used to it.

Casual dating offers an alternative for these people who feel like they can’t invest time into a relationship.

It’s great for people who usually have a hard time balancing friends, work and a significant other. Why? Because less time is needed for your romantic relationship.

What’s also great is there are way fewer expectations. Since there’s not exactly a “how­to guide” for casual dating, it’s up to the people in the relationship to decide what to do and what not to do.

Fewer expectations means less pressure and more opportunities to have fun.

More times than not, people who are in serious relationships lose sight of everything else in their life, their partner becomes the center of their universe. Some might assume that this happens only for women, but research shows guys actually fall in love faster and harder than women.

They begin sacrificing friendships, single activities and become totally enveloped with their significant other.

This sort of attitude and behavior can make daters­ especially young ones­ miss out on a lot of fun and freedom that life has to offer.

With casual dating, you get the best of both worlds.
