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?
If you both have more time on your hands and want to see each other more however, you could always see your boyfriend twice a week.
While you can see them more then this, it’s not always practical, especially if you live quite far from eachother.
Once or twice a week is a good amount of times to see each other.
He’s told me despite not wanting to restrict me from dating other people, he would still like to continue dating because he thinks we really “get each other”, says he knows that’s difficult to find, and thinks we have so much fun together when we do see each other.
The thing to remember about casual dating is that is basically means that you’re seeing each other regularly or semi-regularly, sleeping together, but there is no expressed exclusivity or long term commitment.
It’s more like Indefinite Dating than Casual Dating.
Comment: I’ve been seeing this guy for the past few months and he’s made it clear to me he doesn’t have time to devote to a serious relationship because his new job takes up too much time and energy and he has no idea when that will all change, plus he’s new to the city (I know, three DEFINITE red flags for not being relationship-ready: new job, new crazy hours, new to the city).
I am looking for a serious relationship, but still have fun with him.
