Casual Relationships Don’t evolve

They either stay as they are or they fall apart.

It's an awful feeling to hold on for things “to develop”.

Yes, there is always an exception to the rule, nevertheless, for the most part, casual relationships don't prosper into committed partnerships.

Remember the saying: why buy the cow when you can drink the milk for free?

Putting things in context

-First Scenario
Let's say you have been casually seeing someone for a few weeks now.

When you started going out with this individual, you probably didn't think much of it, you were simply going with the flow, not only that but your “new partner” also told you he is not looking for a relationship and at the time you didn't think you would want one either, so you let things be.

Fast forward 10 or 12 weeks and the casual arrangement hasn't changed.
He clearly wants to keep it light, and you now know that you want to have something more defined.

-Second scenario
You are aware that you want a relationship and so you meet this terribly attractive and emotionally unavailable guy, he tells you he doesn't want anything serious.
