    I like it personally. It lets you have fun with a bunch of people and learn new things without any seriousness or drama. You just chill and do whatever for a while without worrying about the future.

    I think this is how I feel about it. There's nothing wrong with having fun until you find a serious relationship. I don't think I'd regret it

    I dislike casual dating. Generally speaking, I find that there are a lot of people who don't know how to respect others. I don't trust people to treat me well enough to be casual about anything when it comes to my personal space, either emotional or physical.

    in the past I'd always hated dating in any sense really. I just didn't see the point of prolonging something if it had no possibility of going somewhere meaningful. clearly I still had some things to learn and needed to realize that not every person we meet and spend time with is destined to stay with us our entire life. the longer we stay open to new experiences, the better chance we have of finding something that could be exactly what we wanted/needed, when we least expected to find it.

    ^ ^ ^ I was exactly like PurpleDude for a long time. I even remember when I was a kid I was convinced that if I dated someone I had to marry them :laughing:

    I can understand people not being too comfortable with casual dating, and even now it still makes me a bit nervous. BUT I do support it and over-all think it's more positive than not. It can be fun, it can be exciting, it can be relaxing, it can help you discover more about yourself and other people . . . so sure, we're gonna say I like it.

    Everything can be a good thing if all the parties involved are into it.
