Definition of officially dating
These were the most pressing questions my friends back home wanted to know, so I went out in discovery of answers.
And how do other people get to know one another before committing, having casual sex, or something else?
I think back in the day, dating was more loosely going on dates with one or many people, but now dating is the past's equivalent of 'going steady.'It's interesting because if I say I dated a guy in past tense, that usually means it was someone I was hooking up with and not an ex-boyfriend because I'd just say ex.
But if I'm dating someone in the present tense, that's probably someone who I'm hooking up with exclusively and seeing regularly, but we don't have the label yet.
