Rules of a Casual Relationship

If you are in a casual relationship and you call your partner at least twice a day, then you are in trouble. These rules then are meant just for you.

Rules of a Casual Relationship

The seemingly depraved world is caught in a thunder storm of moral decline. Morality has no place in our heart, in our homes and most of all, in our minds. The idea of the day is to have a free society, a bastion of unhindered, ‘Do what you may’ life. Aleister Crowley, dubbed as the wickedest man to have ever lived would have been proud of his prodigies. He had nurtured the idea of libertinism through his new found religion Thelema, and had said, “Do what thou wilt”.

We watched Aston Kutcher and Natalie Portman in No Strings Attached, and we also watched Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis in Friends with Benefits. What we have learnt from these two films about a casual relationship is extraordinary, we have learnt that men and women always have the tendency to spring back into old school romance. Morality stands back in place, outside your doorstep again.


But, how can we throw it out? How can we have a casual relationship without getting into the complications of the heart? Let us guide you dear readers, so that you may destroy that last bit of morality left in you.


The word is ‘casual’

There are so many things that you cannot do when you are in a casual relationship, for instance the things that you may have done when in a more serious relationship.


  • You do not have to spend quality time with your partner round the clock.
  • You do not have to be with them except when basic instinct kicks in.
  • You do not have to buy her drinks (for men) or be so very caring (for women).
  • You need not keep yourself updated about the events in your ‘casual’ partner’s life.
  • Do not get angry or jealous because as long it is casual it is cool.

No Emotions

Do not snuggle inside the quilt together and listen to Roxette’s It must have been love after a session of good sex. This is a sure pit fall and you must restrain! No laying whispers on the pillow or leaving the winter on the ground. Emotions should disappear from your dictionary! The closer you get with your partner, the surer you can be of your downfall. So just get on with what you are doing or what you want and wave good- bye.  


Just because you are sleeping around with this person that does not mean that you can take things for granted.  Be polite and compassionate and always be nice so that this friend with benefits does not feel low on esteem and dignity.  Be the person your partner would never forget. For a man, he should be a gentleman and a woman should be a lady. Let us call this casual relationship with a class. But then again don’t become all mushy and caring, maintain a balance and distance.

No Family  

There shouldn’t be any involvement of family. The only thing you should know about your partner is his or her name, except may be the vital stats and the secret power and prowess  in bed. Limit yourselves to each other and do not introduce each other to your family and be discreet.

Throw that bit of morality you have left in you and submerge in the free societal mumbo-jumbo. Let  the conscience go for a free-fall; remember what your junior school English teacher taught you, ’Necessity is the mother of invention‘.
