We were so comfortable that things just 'worked' like that.
In a weird way, when things get serious they feel more casual.
[Read: 16 signs you’re not yet ready for a serious relationship] #2 Odds are, there’s more than one person.
Because you’re not serious with any one person, there are probably 2 people in the picture at any given time.
There are the types of people in the world who are quick to jump into calling someone their boyfriend/girlfriend after a few dates.
Then there are the types of people in the world (like me) who never know how many dates it will take for it to be appropriate to call someone your boyfriend (or girlfriend)… I’m dating this guy who is basically my boyfriend, but he is my non-boyfriend — a term I used when we were non-exclusive, and a term I continue to use even though we are now exclusive. Plus: Navigating The Map Of Whore Island What is a Non-BF? You can call many guys you’ve dated a Non-BF, referencing anyone that you are seeing consistently but isn’t your BF.
Casual dating So, are you still in the non-exclusive stage of casual dating where hearts are fluttering with affection, but nothing’s too sure just yet? This doesn’t mean you’re in a relationship; it means you’re both helping each other with sexual frustration.
In a wave of feeling agreeable, you say ‘ok, sure’. He’s not looking for a girlfriend, so essentially he’s not looking to date other people and therefore doesn’t have to change anything in his dating behavior. It’s ok, we all make dumb choices every once and again. He’s your Non-BF because you see him more than anyone, and know that even though there will be others in the dating game, at the end of the day, he’s the one you’re going home with (more often than not.) But it doesn’t matter, because nothing will come of the No Strings Attached relationship, and you both know this going in.And even though my friends and the media, including Ryan Seacrest, have referred to him as my boyfriend. But what type of Non-BF they are can vary in a wide spectrum.Since I was introduced to the term by an old roommate, I’ve called every guy I’ve dated for more than a few dates, my “Non Boyfriend” (Non-BF), partially because I just didn’t know whether it would be ok for me to call them my boyfriend, and also because I am a commitment-phobe and never know whether or not I actually WANT to call someone my boyfriend, even if they are. Because of this, in your dating life span you can have very few BFs and many Non-BFs (helping you keep your “BF number down” much like the recyclables in the “sea” help keep your “sxy number” down).We have endless words to indicate various levels of physical contact with someone. Boyfriend/Girlfriend: this is a committed relationship where they have said "lets not see other people, lets just date each other".(Again, don't assume this means they are having sex. No.) There would be words spoken to indicated exclusive commitment.
