I realized like literally a minute or two ago that I really don't know a lot about how dating works and how the whole date to dating to bf and gf to a relationship to serious relationship thing works, can people explain?

A Date is one meet-up you both are presumably available and eligible to see what kind of interest you have in each other or what kind of interactions you are seeking. A date may or may not involve sex, depending on the temperments of the parties. Dating is going on a series of meet-ups and hang-outs with no promises or agreements about future social or sexual interactions. People can date for months without kissing, or they can hangout and have sex three times a week and call that dating too.
There is something called "the talk" that happens at some point of dating where one person asks the other, if they want to make and agreement, an exclusivity agreement. This agreement says, we are not having sex with anyone else (if the relationship has not become sexual, then we are not dating anyone else) . At this point, if someone would introduce the other person as their bf or gf. However, it is tentative commitment, not necessarily lifelong or leading to engagement or marriage.0
