Casual sex might seem to be an empowering and liberating experience sometimes. It’s all about choices, you might feel. Several films have been made too that celebrated no-strings-attached sexual relationships. Then there had been some films that showed that casual sex is actually a mirage – you ultimately fall for the person and you live happily ever after. Justin Timberlake-starrer No Strings Attached is a case in point. So you might enjoy cosying up to that hot guy you spotted at a bar for some time, but there may also be good reasons for you to opt for some casual sex detox. Here’s why you can start thinking of quitting it:
You get attached anyway
Sometimes it can be hard to keep your heart and body in two separate compartments. If you are prone to developing strong emotions for the guy in every casual relationship, you can be at risk. A series of bad casual relationships can affect your emotional well-being, experts say.
If you are giving in to casual relationships because of peer pressure, rethink your relationship strategy. Ask yourself, do you really want to be in casual relationships? Are you being someone you are not? If yes, quit.
A sense of hollowness
Mindless copulation is unlikely to leave you with a sense of fulfillment. It’s okay to be a thrill seeker, but you may want to put the brakes on uncontrollable casualness that takes you nowhere.
That will always be a clear and present danger. If you don’t play safe, there can be the risk of contracting sexual diseases. Beware.
In love with love
You can think of giving love a chance. You might start getting bored with seeing people who really don’t care for you. Nor do you care for them. So a long term relationship may seem to be a tempting possibility.
