Casual Dating or Finding a Mate?

Are you looking to casually date or are you ready to settle down and find a mate? In other words… Do you know what you want? What you’re ready for?

First…Get Clear On Your Purpose for Dating

Before choosing the right dating site for you, it’s important to know why you’re dating. Are you looking for a long-term committed relationship or are you just interested in meeting people and having fun?

Be clear of the kind of people you are looking to meet and the type of relationship you want. The important thing is that you are clear and honest with yourself and potential dates about where you are at in regards to dating.

Casual Dating

There are many reasons why you might be interested in causal dating. One reason might be to find out what you do and do not want in a mate or long-term relationship. If you’ve been single for a while or are returning to the dating scene after many years in a marriage or a relationship, you may just want to test the waters a bit. It can also be an opportunity to work on social and interpersonal skills if you feel you need a tune-up in
this area. Finally, you may want to just get out and meet people to improve your social life.

We recommend looking at online dating sites and speed dating for casual dating. Read the reviews for these kinds of sites.

Dating to Find a Partner for a Long-Term Relationship

When you’re clear about what is essential for you in a relationship and in a partner and feel ready for a long-term relationship – you may want to date with the intention of finding a partner.

Do you know exactly what you will and will not accept in a relationship and in a partner? Or are you compromising what you truly value? If you haven’t met anyone and your list of what constitutes an ideal mate is a mile-long – you may need to get down to the essentials of what is important to you.

The best places to find a potential partner are the matchmaking sites. Some of the mainstream online dating sites have a section for those looking for long-term relationships, that is separate from their casual dating section. Speed dating may also be a viable option.

Whatever type of dating you’re ready for – have fun!

I highly recommend the Attracting Genuine Love online course by Gay and Kathlyn Hendricks. If you want to get ready to find your ideal mate and be clear of what you value in a relationship, check this out. If you find you’ve been attracting the same kind of unsuitable person or the same type of unsatisfactory relationship over and over again, consider this course.
