Anon please as I know a friend visits this forum daily. How do you tell a partner (girl/boyfriend) , apart from short-term fling / casual hook-up / friend with benefit situation?
I mean for me, a potential partner is someone I can see enjoy being with in 5 years time, have enough chemistry with - where as casual fling is more sort of physical attraction regardless of how things would work.

Fling - **** 'em raw whenever you want.
Partner - Lots of romantic crap without the expectation of actually doing the deed afterwards.

What I expect in a partner:
Physical: conventionally attractive, cute smile, inquisitive eyes, 1.65cm+
Personality: Loyal, socially desirable & appropriate, personable, goes extra mile!
Qualities: not erratic, discreet, does not smoke
Interests: making a difference / finance / tech / education / politics, etc
Desirable: demonstrated skill & talent in area I respect / shared experience (e.g. private education) / driven for achievement, etc
Fancy / fling:
Attractive, nice smile, slim build, good shape
Personable, discreet, open minded, not clingy
Anything extra is plus!
I mean for me personally as a guy, what I expect in a partner is different from a casual relationship - I'm not saying a casual relationship won't turn into something more, it's just I tend to manage commitment and expectation in relationship depending on how I see the other person - so if in my eyes I can't see myself with them beyond the weekend - I tend to back off from giving off confusing signs. I get to meet quite alot of people - so sometimes if a girl really amazes me then I'll introduce myself. It's just I might be thinking too much - as much as I enjoy casual encounters, I'm almost 22 and wondering perhaps I should stop seeing people I don't see a future with or just keep having fun?
