The girl I'm dating wants to keep things casual for now. She says that she has a lot of things going on in her life and doesn't want to add a relationship to the mix.
But, to me, casual dating is just "dating someone until someone better comes along." I know casual could become "un-casual" as things progress, but I can't help but think of it as a sort of rejection.
Is casual dating a good idea, or is it best to cut and run before someone gets hurt? What has been your experience?

I think a person that tells you there situation straight up, get a lot of respect. All she's saying is that she can't commit to being a full time girl friend. Casually dating someone doesn't necessarily mean multiple partners, it could be her way of saying "i like you " but there's thing in my way right now and I wanna take things slow is all. It's another way of taking things slow all the perks of a relationship minus the pressure, and label until further notice. You still hang out, talk , date, and there's a level of intimacy. Your perception of casually dating is wrong.1
