    Apparently thats what my boyfriend of three months says we're in. It was news to me, and I can't decide if I'm happy about it.

    I know what I think it means, but what does it means to you guys? I'm planning on asking him, but I guess I wanted to know the sort of answer I can expect before I ask.

    Casual: physical relationship > emotional relationship.
    Basically it's the opposite of a serious relationship

    (Make sure you clarify he does not mean 'open' relationship! because that's a right pickle)

    It means you're in a relationship that's not quite serious yet.

    I would interpret casual (bearing in mind my ex said that to me) to mean that if he went out and got with someone else he could use the excuse 'we're only casual'. My ex said we were 'casual' but after a year of being together I couldn't help my feelings, fell in love with him, told him this, and so he broke up with me. So I'd clarify what he means by this, because it's definitely not a good situation to be in!

    I think he means more that its not a full on serious lets-get-married-one-day-love-you-so-much relationship, more of a seeing each other and having a good time, and seeing where it takes you.

    i would assume he meant you were "seeing" each other. therefore you are both free to do as you please.
    i would check with him tho as it obviously menas different things to different people!

    It means if he wants to sleep with other girls, he can and you can't ***** at him for it.

    Well a casual relationship is just sex. A serious relationship is just a normal relationship that has a future potentially. That's always been my definition.
