Can someone please explain to me what the difference is between these two different dating intentions: "casual dating" & "dating but nothing serious"? Casual dating/dating but nothing serious to me is having met someone and spending time with them in order to discover if you might have a connection which will lead to something more serious down the road. (Instant (hopefully) gratification)Not the same thing. From now on though I'm going to ask all the right questions (interview style) just to be sure.After 25 years of being married, this dating stuff is new to me. Is one basically what I hear are called 'booty calls' & the other "booty calls" & going out to dinner, spending time not related to 'booty calls'? This is all new to me, whenever I've dated someone I've taken for granted that we are interested in each other enough not to jeopardise it by not being 'exclusive'.For example, it is normal for human beings to display random mating with respect to the ABO BLOOD GROUP, but ASSORTATIVE MATING with respect to other genetically controlled characteristics, such as body shape.
Nothing worse than not knowing where one stands and then there's confusion..
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... Casual implies, to me someone to go out with on occasion with no emotional or sexual strings attached. Of course thats my take and others might see it differently I see a lot in the forums here that unless you have laid down all the ground rules....we exclusive? This is all new to me, whenever I've dated someone I've taken for granted that we are interested in each other enough not to jeopardise it by not being 'exclusive'.
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. This would be a massive blunder on my part if my datee didn't feel the same, fortunately it turns out they do feel the same.
a practice of mating in which any egg has an equal opportunity of being fertilized by any sperm; thus the chance of one genotype at a particular locus combining with another genotype at that locus is random.
or the selection of mates by chance so that the choice of a partner is not influenced by the genotypes under study.
The most important thing to think right off the bat is what is it YOU are exactly looking for.
This way when you do meet someone you come to a meeting of the minds and there is no miscommunication.
I suppose you will find it means different things to different people. This would be a massive blunder on my part if my datee didn't feel the same, fortunately it turns out they do feel the same.
To me Casual dating means you like to go out but don't have any real desire to just go out with one person. I suppose...could imply dating the same person but don't wish to have implied dates and continuous obligatory contact. Booty calls and other dinners etc..Friends with benefits. From now on though I'm going to ask all the right questions (interview style) just to be sure.
