Here is some ideas and statistical data to support them presented in the form of interesting infographics.
Check it out below. It includes relationship types, statistics, interesting facts about men and women and other useful information for you and your partner:
Most people get used to divide the relationship types into those of casual, pre-marriage relations and more serious marriage relationships that traditionally and logically are supposed to lead to the marriage.
- Casual relations presuppose having nice time together, flirting and sexing, having fun in general. Both partners are not interested in marriage yet and do not discuss it. This is kind a light, simple and convenient way to date. When you are in casual dating you are just one of the partners and do not claim for more. You can be called friends or friends with benefits, whatever, have a status of a couple in social networks, have occasional messaging and meeting when you have time for that, etc. Your inclusion is usually more likely to be based on sexual desire or available hookup experience. The peculiarity is that you will not miss the partner if you decide to move on, you do not have to commit either.
- Pre-marriage type. Such relations already have a certain status and a full potential to become long term. You call each other a boyfriend and a girlfriend and have a desire to introduce each other to friends, etc. You are stable and prefer each other to the other potential partners. Such relationships have a long term prospect and logically lead to thinking of marriage. You spend and dedicate much more time to your half.
- Marriage status. All other relationships go into the past alongside the partners, either potential or current. You will not think twice before deleting all the numbers from the phone or breaking relations with the other otherwise. You will be introduced to the friends circle and parents as ‘the one.’ Settling down and starting a family is in question. You call each other often enough, text or meet all the time. You spend the most of your lifetime together without even notice. You are excited about that fact, and indeed do not regret anything.
