Well, I am in need of clarification. I asked a question on here a while ago, and it lead to this question. I always thought that "dating" and being in a relationship were the same thing, but apparently they are not
So, what is the difference between the two. When does dating become a relationship?

Dating can be construed as a casual form of a relationship, but it's not a bonafide relationship.
The kind of relationship you are referencing is where both people have committed themselves to one another without the use of ceremonial rituals (i.e. marriage, commitment ceremony, civil union, etc).
Dating in this case, is where two people have a heighten interest in one another, and agree to see one another socially for the purposes of discovering if a relationship is at all possible.
I think that covers it, let me know if you need more help.2
