3 reasons casual dating is good

27 July 2015, 17:12 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi -I do not believe in jumping in and out of things like someone who does not know their own mind. But casual dating is one of those things that can be good for you rather than the opposite. If done right.

Casual dating is when you open yourself up to meeting a lot of people rather than tying yourself to one person and clinging to them.

You get to know yourself better

We all hope that by the time that we are adults we know ourselves and we know how to conduct ourselves around other people. How you deal with attraction. Do you close up or are you confident enough to approach the other person that you might like? Are you more afraid of rejection rather than finding out. Knowing yourself better enables you to make the right moves when it comes to dealing with the opposite sex. That way you never have to be a wallflower and wait to be approached. People who wait to be approached always end up with people that they just settle with because they never had any other option. Eliminating the ‘no other’ option mentality in your dating life will enable you to get and meet the right partner for you.

You share strong connections with the right people

Notice that I said connections rather than connection. I could harp on about taking control of your life and situations but you do get the point. Dating should not be about one person and latching onto them with your dear life. You can also meet new, better people. You may not progress to an actual relationship but you built something with this other person. These connections teach you what you appreciate, like and do not want in a partner. These connections will teach you whether you are the problem or the approach you are using is not the right one for you. The better the connections you make with other people, the better the choice of relationship you will have. You will never settle if you have choices. You will have learnt what makes a quality relationship. As compared to making bad choices over and over again by sticking to one thing, one person, the same design and the same attitude.

You are not desperate

Simply; you are not desperate. You never will be desperate. It is just a matter of having options and choices.
