  • The first answer given below is a great description! I would just add that dating doesn't mean it's exclusive until agreed upon, to me then it's considered girlfriend/boyfriend & monogomy is expected. Also, faithfulness or loyalty in other arenas too----basically an expectation to "have each others back" & create a environment for nurturing each others emotional, mental & physical needs & whatever else that particular couple deems vital to them.

  • Dating Definition: Dating is a form of human courtship consisting of social activities done by two persons with the aim of each assessing the others' suitability as a partner in an intimate relationship or as a spouse. While the term has several senses, it usually refers to the act of meeting and engaging in some mutually agreed upon social activity in public, together, as a couple. The protocols and practices of dating, and the terms used to describe it, vary considerably from country to country. The most common sense is two people trying out a relationship and exploring whether they're compatible by going out together in public as a couple, and who may or may not yet be having sexual relations, and this period of courtship is sometimes seen as a precursor to engagement or marriage.
