    I guess it differs from person to person, the important thing is that the couple decides what "dating" or "being in a relationship" means to them. To me, I think dating is going out on dates, being romantic etc but not being official, whereas a relationship is the full on boyfriend/girlfriend exclusive malarky!

    Back in my day if you were going out with each other you were boyfriend and girlfriend and therefore in a relationship.I'm lost with the terms for it these days though.Now theres things like "Official" and "Exclusive" which werent around when I was single back in the middle ages :P

    I agree OP. The line is bloody blurry sometimes. I've been "seeing" someone for 4 months now. We've established that we arent seeing other people by talking about it, we spend our weekends together and are in constant contact during the week. I think he just assumes that now we're a couple, but to me it doesnt feel proper unless he actually asks me out formally. I'm SO old fashioned, but there you are. Oh and course he has to officiate our relationship on facebook. OBVIOUSLY.

    Lol.

    I thought dating was the same as 'seeing' and being in a relationship is when you're boyfriend and girlfriend.

    Then again, such things confuse me. What about 'courting'?

    Wait til you meet the cultures that don't actually discuss such things and just assume.

    I find this interesting because it's possible to "go on dates" even though you're married.
    shutup.

    Dating is the getting to know eachother phase where you go on dates and hang out whereas being in a relationship is obviously being boyfriend/girlfriend...
