Unless you are from a culture that practices arranged marriages, the idea of casual dating is centuries old. But just as everything evolves, so has dating. Traditionally, dating is the stage of a relationship where two people get to know each other. For our modern times, ‘getting to know each other’ may include the activity of no strings sex or a ‘friends with benefits’ situation. Where tradition and protocol of our Victorian era saw such casual sexual encounters as scandalous, our modern culture sees it as just part of life.
The main function of dating has remained the same – it’s a way to meet new people. All dating starts as casual. You have no way of knowing if the person that you take out for a pizza has what it takes to be your life partner. You are just having pizza. And, chances are very good that you will need to go out for a lot of pizza before you find someone that you want to be exclusive with.
In many parts of the United States, the age of marriage has increased to the late 20’s. Often, the time between age 18 and 25 are spent going to school, finding a career they like, or just exploring life’s options. For this reason, and many more, young adults are less likely to embrace a serious relationship too soon.
But how can a person in this day and age find other like-minded individuals to share a non-monogamous, sex dating, friends with benefits type relationship? Many are turning to online adult dating sites such as Randy Rabbits. Here, they can safely explore options for playmates in their area. Some want to find someone that is equally interested in just a sex date – no strings attached, physical release. Others may be looking for someone to go places with, with our without a sexual relationship, but without the expectation of a longer commitment.
Casual dating has also evolved as women have become more affluent. They are no longer burdened with having to enter into a marriage in order to be financially set. Women are making their own money, and their own decisions, about what kind of dating relationship they want. Gone are many of the inhibitions and stigmas surrounding a woman that has sex with someone she is not married to. With adult dating sites, a woman can put herself in control of her dating relationships. She, too, is allowed to request a one night stand, or engage in sex talk, at a level that is comfortable to her.
The best casual dating scenarios exist when both partners understand that a permanent, monogamous relationship is not the goal. They are simply having adult fun with no expectations. While some of these relationships have the potential to grow into a more traditional dating scenario, each person understands that the change will occur only if both partners want it. No bad feelings are allowed if only one person’s expectations change.
