What is a casual relationship vs a serious relationship?
Can someone explain what it means when someone says casual relationship vs serious relationship? I am very confused about the difference. Aren't both...
Also, do people usually agree something is NOT serious and just casual before starting a relationship or is it just unspoken?

Casual: going to eat and occasionally having him pay... Sex after a date... Not meeting family... Not talking about relationships.
Serious: having him pay when you go out. Kissing in public. Holding hands in public. Meeting family. Calling frequently. He brings you up in future plans. Sex is romantic and sensual...not two bunnies getting it on.

Casual relationship = sex, movies, drinking, anal sex, Tylenol, see ya later.
Serious relationship = moving in together, buying pet together, sharing bathroom in the morning, meeting parent(s), drunken menage trois w/her best friend and being cool with it at breakfast.
Casual is just dating.
Serious is actually a relationship.

I think that a lot of men do not want serious relationships when they are young. They want to experience so much in the single life. However when you fall in love with someone, you can't help it. No matter what age you are. :)
Casual - Just a 'fling'. No deep emotions and love towards the other. Just a bit of affection or just meaningless sex.
Serious - Love, affection, meaning sex, care, doing things for the other and hugs, kisses, gifts etc... :)
