We all need love.. well, at least many of us do. And most of us needs a partner – but a part time lover, do you? Well, in our world today, perhaps many would love it.
This is like no strings attached.. although Helen Croydon, the creator of dating site Part Time Love doesn’t intend it to be that way.
As she said, the dating site is about getting a partner and at the same time enjoying freedom.
If that’s the case, we could then do almost anything that we want including having another relationship on the side. Hmm… now you see him, now you don’t.
Well, if you’re not really into commitment, you’d surely like this kind of set up.
On the other hand, Croydon could say, “that’s not what I mean, it’s freeing oneself from constant checks while having a life of your own.” Ah, then that’s still about commitment issues.
So, as Krishann of Babble would describe such a relationship – it’s complicated. This is especially true since she’s an all or nothing kind of woman.
And it certainly makes sense, hey, why would you get into a relationship as if it’s a game or something? What, just sex? If you’re not ready to commit then just stay friends.
If it’s all about freedom, you could talk about it and make compromises – while still enjoying and reinforcing your vow to each other.
In the end, life is a journey and it would definitely help if the one we are with is someone who would really share our tracks – flat tire or not. And that.. we only get with commitment.
Oh well, relationships is actually quite a sensitive topic. We all have our own needs, wants, and goals – not to mention our culture, spirituality, and family values that makes up our being. The key then is sincerity to define expectations.. from the start.
Part time Love? It’s your choice.
