What's the difference between seeing someone, dating someone, and being in a relationship?
So at what point does it get exclusive...?
Most Helpful Opinion
I'd rather label the sections "Seeing someone", "Courting", and "Being in a relationship".. That way less people are confused, because you quoted two of the same thing above, haha.
Regardless, exclusivity is believed to start at "Seeing someone"; but in all actuality it isn't official exclusivity until you have reached the "Courting" stage.
Here's my example of each situation, so you can better reference it for yourself:
1) Seeing someone
- You guys flirt, conversate, hang out, and talk about relationships
- You guys start going on dates, you begin interacting physically (hugging / kissing / etc), etc
3) Being in a relationship
- You guys are official as "boyfriend / girlfriend" and have established a full relationship level of comittment.
