  • I don't think that there is a set, universal definition for these, and when getting involved with someone it's important to clarify exactly how the other person views "dating" and "relationships"

    For me, I always saw dating as more of the early stages of getting to know one, or multiple people. You're not tied down to one person yet, and it's fair game to see who you are most compatible with. I do feel that if you are going out on many dates (if I had to pick a number, 3 or more) with the same person, you should really cut off any other loose ends, and give this person all of your focus so you can transition into having a relationship with them.

    Once you decide to be in a relationship, then you've made your decision and no more casual dates. At this time I would probably be comfortable making this person known to my friends, and I wouldn't avoid including them in my social media. I would probably hold off on family until it go super serious, but that's just me, some people might want to introduce to family sooner.
