What are the benefits of dating around?

Cupid’s Advice:

While avoiding relationships and constantly dating new guys can be controversial, dating around does have some benefits.  Here are a few advantages:

1. You have extra time: When you’re in a serious relationship, a large amount of your time is given to your boyfriend.  By having casual flings instead, you have spare time to devote to your career and hobbies.

2. You find out what you want: Especially when you’re young, you may not know what kind of partner you need in.  By dating around, you discover certain personality traits you prefer and other’s you don’t.

3. Mistakes are less tragic: Everyone makes mistakes.  However, they’re easier to recover from in a casual relationship.  The absence of pressure makes it easier to move on and to learn from your blunders more gracefully.
