Seeing dating defination dating multiple guys at the same time
I think back in the day, dating was more loosely going on dates with one or many people, but now dating is the past's equivalent of 'going steady.'It's interesting because if I say I dated a guy in past tense, that usually means it was someone I was hooking up with and not an ex-boyfriend because I'd just say ex.But if I'm dating someone in the present tense, that's probably someone who I'm hooking up with exclusively and seeing regularly, but we don't have the label yet.I thought it was pretty self-explanatory: "dating" is the act of going on "dates," right? The other day, my friends and I were talking (read: extensively gossiping) about an acquaintance and her new boy.I tried to say they were "dating." Someone else said they weren't dating because they weren't exclusive.
It’s reached the point where I’ll mention him to my friends, the dude’s got potential. Like the difference between the B and D train: one easily gets you to the American Museum of Natural History, the other zooms you up to 125th leaving you wondering what the hell you did wrong and OMG am I in Harlem!? Annnnnd….a lot of other people think the exact opposite… “Seeing” can be applied to your friend with benefits, your ex, and tonight’s Bumble date. Maybe I need to change my wording when I write about dating, since I frequently do…They started off as casual, and then things got a little more serious when we became exclusive.Then he asked me to be his girlfriend, and boom: We were in a real relationship.So, the way I see it, "dating" is what happens before you're boyfriend and girlfriend.Of course, life has a cute, charming way of making things unnecessarily complicated, so there are about one million different stages you can undergo within the "hooking up" and "dating" stages.
