Whether you love it or hate it, the world of dating is something that most of us will have to deal with at one point or another. But just because it can be daunting doesn't mean it has to be, and at the end of the day your approach to casual dating has a huge impact on your feelings toward it.

Here's the thing: When you strip away the expectations and go about dating in an honest, mature way, you're much more likely to enjoy the process — so much so that you might not want it to end. If you are wondering what that means in practice, then you've come to the right place.

In this episode of The Single Girl's Guide seriesour protagonist shows just how simple casual dating is. Newly single, she's not looking for anything serious — she's looking to have a good time without anyone getting hurt.
