Everyone defines dating in a different way. To me, dating is when two people are seeing each other to see if they bond together well, in simplest terms, testing the water to see if they want something long term with that person.
I however do not believe in the dating concept. Why? Because I think that if you have known someone for awhile, hung out with that person a lot and talked with that person on a deeper level than friends would, I do not see the reason to go through the dating stages because by then you should already know if you want to be more with that person or not.
Is that a bad way to look at things? This guy now and I are supposedly dating, but I feel like it is stupid and just a waste of time really.

I see in your scenario it would make sense not to date, but how about people who never met before? blind dates? I literally only talked to a girl for like 1 week, over text, and then took her out on a date. no way in hell I got to know her in that amount of time. but the way you put it, if those two had been hanging out for a long time and know each other well, then yeah they can skip dating.4
