Differences between seeing someone and dating

Ask whoever you're dating/seeing what he/she thinks is going on.It's up to the two of you to agree on a common definition.Unless I'm using it in the terms of I went out on a date with this guy...

Dating is spending social time with members of the opposite sex (or same sex if that's your thing.) "Seeing someone" is exclusive and likely "seeing" where things may or may not lead ~ it's also an excuse used by some to avoid contact with those they don't wish to "date" (if forum posters are correct.) JMO Actually from an English language standpoint 'seeing someone' is often seen as a modern version of dating someone, since making a date to be with one person is what dating someone denotes to many. Now if someone asks 'are you dating', it can mean are you dating one or more people?

Since I am not seeing anyone special but just making a date for lunch, dinner or activities, it is simply that. Now if I were only with this one person doing these things as well as spending time at each others home I would probably say, I am 'seeing someone'. Boyfriend/girlfriend after we have the exclusivity conversation. :0)^^^If they are steadily dating someone, that doesn't mean they aren't dating others. Any reference as to what the relationship was, was on a need to know bases. Talk to whoever you are seeing, or dating, or whatever (God, now I'm confused). I just dont think about it much, til I see a thread that reminds me of it....

Whatever you decide to label yourselves is what it means..time, to the two of you.

I will often tell my friends that I am "seeing" this guy...

usually it means that they're someone new that I'm physically or romantically interested in but have not got to the point of getting into a relationship with them.
