Is Dating With No Labels Possible?
Before what we refer to as modern dating, there were only a few labels for relationships. For example, boyfriend-girlfriend, couple, married, dating, and so on. Today, because dating with no labels has come into the picture, things got a bit more complicated.
Navigating Through The Complicatedness Of Dating With No Labels
This isn’t to say that dating with no labels is a bad thing. It’s part of how we date today and some people prefer it because they’re not ready for a committed relationship yet. Despite our openness to seek unique arrangements for companionship, we have to know how to approach dating with no labels to keep our hearts safe and possibly ready when the right time comes:
Enjoy Every Moment
Don’t focus too much on the future because this what you’re in isn’t an official relationship. It’s best to be in the moment and enjoy the presence of the person you are with.
Leave Out Privileges
You have to constantly remind yourself that you are not in an official relationship so leave the privileges of that arrangement off the table. You are not required to do “couple things” if you don’t want to.
Be Ready For The End
In most cases, dating with no labels is temporary. It’s not a permanent arrangement so you have to be ready when you or the other person loses interest all of a sudden.
Get To Know The Person As You Get To Know Yourself
You’ll learn so much from this arrangement. You’re not investing a lot emotionally, but that doesn’t mean that you should avoid getting to know the person you’re seeing. In the process, you may learn that you have more patience than you think, or that you are actually more open to trying new things.
Now that you know how to handle yourself when you want to date without any attachments or commitments, it’s time to apply what you’ve learned. Do share this post if you found it helpful, and don’t forget to read other posts on the blog.
