    Well be honest with least don't give any indication that you want anything else from the situation.

    It helps if you give her plenty of get-outs as well. Mention stuff like "I'm not really looking for a girlfriend at the moment" in conversation, and giver her room to back out later if she wants to.

    Hope that advice helps.

    And that's fine. Nobody should feel like there's anything wrong with wanting something other than a traditional, committed, monogamous relationship. It's much better to acknowledge that your desires are different so that you can be clear about this being what you want if you meet a woman you're interested in than it is to convince yourself to attempt a serious relationship when that isn't what you want, which can potentially be problematic for both you and any woman you're seeing down the line.
