Let’s be honest here for a second. The dating scene has changed. For the better, meaning, it’s a lot easier to hook up and have a good time than ever before. Just think about it: dating apps, social media, dating sites – these all make our lives easier if we’re “on the market” for a partner.
However, you’ll often come across a few confusing acronyms while viewing potential profiles. What are we talking about? Have you ever came across the acronym in the phrase “NSA relationship” or NSA tossed around as slang?
If your answer is a BIG yes, then consider giving this post a read, since we’re going to discuss the meaning of the “NSA” acronym in detail.
A COMMON PHENOMENON IN THE ONLINE DATING SCENE
As mentioned above, the internet is full of confusing acronyms when it comes to dating. One of the most common ones is “NSA” which simply means “no strings attached”. People who are looking for something with no strings attached means that they’re mostly looking to have sexual relations without a commitment of any kind.
Pretty straightforward, isn’t it? So, in practice, “no strings attached” would mean that two people hook up, either once, every now and then or on a regular basis without having to commit (I.e the strings) to each other and their unity as a couple as they would do in a traditional relationship. No strings attached, no commitment tying the two down, like Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman in the movie named “No Strings Attached” (coincidence?).
THE DOS AND DON’TS
When you’re in an NSA relationship, the main point of the relationship is having sex regularly – without the obligations which come with a traditional relationship. Usually, this is your typical case, however, you can limit your interactions to just sex or broaden it to other things as well – it all depends on what you two agree on at the very beginning.
Let’s say, at first it’s just casual sex, then it becomes sex on a regular basis, later on, you start hanging out out of the bedroom too. Going to the movies together, grabbing something to eat, going shopping. All is good as long as both of you feel comfortable and both of you are honest about what you truly want.
You’re also free to date and sleep with other people too. Just make sure that everyone practices safe sex to stay free of sexually transmitted diseases. Also, the both of you need to be honest about what you truly want.
NSA – FINAL THOUGHTS
If everything goes like mentioned above, the no strings attached relationship can be a pretty fun experience, where you not only get a sex partner but even a friend you can hang out if both of you are comfortable with it. For more similar articles, visit our blog, today!
