The point is: Dating someone you know isn’t right for you is honestly a waste.

These people will have dates on a regular basis, and they may or may not be having sexual relations.

This period of courtship is sometimes seen as a precursor to engagement.

At this point, you don’t care if things end -- as long as you’re not the one to end them. Half the time you don’t answer or just plain walk out of the room. You have to be up early to run some errands or go to a meeting.

You may be a bit confused emotionally, as sometimes the wrong person is still a great person. You wish you could hang out, but you’re “just too busy.”When you’re dating someone you know you’re not going to marry, truth and honesty aren’t part of the equation. Of course, you see this coming so you get the added bonus of worrying about this until the day comes.

It’s nice to have someone to talk to and support you when need be.

Yet, at the end of the day, you’re not going to be happy.

You may not be soulmates, but you don’t want to hurt this person's feelings.

At the same time, you can’t risk the chance of not talking to Mr. Right just because you’re currently dating someone else.

You only want to see this person when you want him or her.

Other than that, this person doesn’t really exist to you.

You don’t want to lose this person entirely, but you don’t want to make it too much of a regular thing either -- because you don’t like him or her enough.
