Your Definition of Dating So I asked MixedVariety what dating was and he suggested that I make a thread about it. So what is dating exactly? I seem to always skip that step. I don't think I've dated more than one person at a time. Does a friendly movie or dinner count as a date? When is the line between dating and "a relationship" crossed? Don't tell me when you both agree on it, that's so ambiguous. urgh...All this stuff confuses me.
