Finding a man for a casual date
When it comes to meeting men, it is often seen as somewhat of a daunting task, especially when we consider that they are all expecting different things from a relationship; be it short or long-term. Fact of the matter is, there have never been more methods of finding a casual dating partner than there are now. We can essentially break down the methods into two camps – traditional and modern. While each has their benefits, it is important to make sure to go with the technique we feel most comfortable with. Let’s focus on the more traditional methods first…
The traditional method: going out
First and perhaps the most obvious of methods for meeting men is to get out of the house and socialize in public places. Bars and clubs are often a hotbed for people looking to let their hair down and have a good time. Granted not every single guy we meet on the dance floor is going to be up for jumping into bed right away, but a lot of them will be happy to follow us home. We either get lucky and meet the perfect man who wants the same casual experience or we don’t; in which case we just enjoy a good night out. Some of us love the rush of meeting complete strangers on a night out while others find it intimidating, often opting for a far more modern method of meeting people…
The modern method: online dating
Online dating websites continue to grow every single year. We’ve seen the many adverts out there for general dating sites; boasting how successful they are at helping us finding the right life-partner. However there are other sites that offer a similar set of features for casual encounters too; dating sites that understand not everyone is simply looking for a serious relationship.
Unlike meeting men on a night out, where it is not always clear what they are looking for (be it casual or other) the beauty of using a specialised dating site is that it allows us to craft a profile stating our intentions. We can then search and contact those looking for the same casual experience we are looking for.
Other modern methods: forums and apps
Forums and chat threads are a common means of people getting together. These almost act like a modern day equivalent of meeting someone in a club or bar, the only difference being that instead of chatting on a dance floor, we are doing so in a forum thread full of other people. Forums also have the benefit of allowing groups of similarly interested people to chat together in one place. Casual daters, long term committers and fetish lovers can congregate in their respective threads; thus making it even easier to find a guy who wants the same things we do.
Casual dating has even reached over to our mobile phones, apps now allowing us to contact others at the swipe of a screen. Some apps not only allow us to search for men who want a casual encounter, but also help us finding those who live nearby, thanks to our smart phone’s GPS. Having this sort of feature in the palm of our hand can prove very convenient.
Finding a man for casual fun has never been easier thanks in part to the internet and technology. While some enjoy the more personal nature of meeting people out in the open, it is hard to deny the ways in which websites and apps have advanced the casual dating experience, making it very easy for us to find a man for a casual date.
