    dweebs!

    ok you meet a dudette/dude in a club/party/bookstore and you guys go out for dinner sometime. you agree to see each other again. and agian. and agian.

    after how many dates is it just 'seeing someoen'
    when does this become 'dating'
    obviously 'in a relationship' is after you agree it as exclusive, right?

    it's seeing someone when you do it reguarly, and you both know its a little bit more than just friends.
    Dating.. i guess.. is when it becomes a little bit more exclusive and includes kissing etc?
    And a relationship is when you agree on it.. yes.

    Dunno really, bit vague.. 'dating' isn't really thrown around that much , not that i know of

    so like if i go out with a guy say twice and kiss him, that is dating?

    i dont get the difference between dating and seeing someone

    after how many dates does seeing soene turn to dating?

    Seeing someone imo is frequently meeting them and such and a case of mutual likeness.

    Dating is what my flatmate calls "Shopping" - looking around for someone, choosing your options.

    A relationship is when you go on Facebook and change your status to "In a relationship"

    Such language, do you not wonder sometimes how strongly Lucifer has gotten a hold on you?

    Remember, celibacy is a heavenly virtue and it is wrong to sway towards the seven deadly sins, especially gluttony.

    I beg you think carefully about your decision to date this man and bring embarassement to the family.

    Before Facebook there were no "official" relationships. There was the possibility of a piece of paper saying "Just Married" or telling someone that you have a boy/girlfriend but that's it, nothing to officially state that one is in a relationship.

    The bible's more likely to tell you to not have a relationship than to be used as a dating guide.

    Seeing each other is causal yet exclusive.

    Dating is when you're meeting up, but there's no exclusivity and generally isn't for that long. Americans tend to use dating more to mean seeing, hence the confusion.

    Relationship is when seeing each other has become a bit more serious.
