This guy I've been best friends with since August recently asked me out. We went on a handful of dates before he 'officially' asked me out. (We've gone to the movies, ice skating, rock climbing and we've gone out to lunch numerous times.) I said yes, but then it got me wondering what the difference between 'dating' and 'in a relationship' and being 'exclusive'. Are they the same thing? What does this mean in terms of levels?

Dating: Still getting to know each other, just going on dates. (may also be dating other people)
Relationship: Only dating each other, no one else.
Exclusive: Can mean anything, friends with benefits , bf/gf, dating, as long as you're only doing it with each other.1
