Dating a casual friend
My name is Beca and up until relatively recently, I was a serial monogamist.I hopped from serious relationship to serious relationship, racking up a surprisingly high number of "meaningful" relationships at a young age.The two of you are best buds or simply like hanging out together.While your relationship has been totally platonic up to this point, you're beginning to realize that you may want more than just a friendship.
However, other singles are less interested in getting into a relationship and more interested in getting into someone’s pants.If you have the same tendency as me—to get very legit with someone real quick—you don't have to stay that way. I say "date" in a deliberate way because I mean the casual, lower-case "d" kind of dating.dating (sic) is still super fun and you shouldn't have to miss out on the chill variety it offers just because you have a track record of Relationships with very little time in between.This type of social interaction can cue way too much stress, and introducing that kind of social stress into a casual relationship defeats the purpose of keeping things non-serious. If the ratio is more individual friends than couples (and at least five of them to start with), it's probably a safe bet to bring someone you're only kinda involved with.Also, if you start showing up with someone to events like these, the people in your life are going to start associating the two of you as a couple, and sometimes other people defining your relationship can have a significant impact on actually defining it. If you're going to start including someone you're sleeping with into more intimate social outings with your close posse, you might as well give them a goddamn drawer.
