So I know what a date is. I'm just seeing what people think the difference between dating and a relationship is. Is dating just not being boyfriend and girlfriend having fun together while seeing other people.(Does it include sex?) Is a relationship when you finally agree with the other person you will not see other people and become a couple while doing all the fun activities you did when you were dating?
Your definition of dating?

Dating is geting to know each other, deciding if you want a long term relationship, can include sex or not up to the individuals and what their expectations are.0

Dating for me is when two people are going out on dates but you are not exclusive and could be dating other people. Dating should not include having sex, though I realize a lot of people will mix that in. I would not want to have sex with a guy without being exclusive. It puts you into the friends with benefits category and I don't want to be with someone who is having sex with multiple partners. Further, a lot of girls can think if you are dating and you are having sex, then you are in a relationship. It can come as a real shock to find out the guy has a whole different take on the subject and was seeing other girls. It's a further surprise when you confront him about this and he says "Well, we aren't in a relationship.".
A relationship is when you agree to be exclusive and you can call each other boyfriend/girlfriend and you start having sex.0
