  • I always use Going out when I'm actually just going out with a guy, like, to the movies, or to play pool or a general Hang out.

    WHen I'm dating or exclusive to a guy I say 'im seeing someone' or 'dating' I never use Going out

    To me Going out is a very casual gesture.

  • I'd be of the opinion that they're pretty much interchangeable when talking about a relationship - e.g. "We've been dating for four months/He's still going out with her".

    "Going out" I think is a more catch-all term than dating, though - you can say "I'm going out with some friends tonight" and have it be understood that it's strictly platonic, but "dating" is reserved for actual, you know, dates. So I guess dating is more serious? I dunno.
