10 signs it's not so casual anymore: I was once seeing a guy in what I thought was a casual relationship, when one night, out of nowhere, he took me to this crazy fancy restaurant with overly attentive waiters, a live saxophone player and entrees that cost more than my H&M dress. On any other ocassion, I would've been thrilled to go on such a classic date, but the experience left me really hazy and confused about our "casual" status. Was it turning into something more, like a real, live, actual relationship? I wish I had this list from The Frisky of the "10 'firsts' on the way from casual dating to a serious relationship" to refer to. It would've made everything so much clearer!
