  • We are only dating each other and only having sex with each other. He and I already talked about that.. But I'm not sure if what we have is heading into a serious relationship or if it'll just stay as dating. I hadn't titled it before in fear he didn't feel the same or didn't see it as dating. Although he asked I not date others and he said that he wasn't dating anyone else because it was all about me now.

  • OP, IMO, when people hook up and do the dating ritual stuff, then you throw sex into the mix, you are no longer dating, you have a relationship.

  • I agree with Michigan-Mom on this one. I would qualify it as being in a relationship.

  • Well If Its myself referring to myself then no one should take offense because I am pretty stupid when it comes to this. I've only been in a couple serious relationships and it was when I was between 15-22 and neither was started off with just dating at first which i suppose is why they didn't work out. But when I say that state I'm just saying that in my case. I do not believe I was talking or calling anyone else retarded.

  • I never really liked dating much but like men and like sex and sometimes like going out. I've had sex without a relationship so for me, sex doesn't mean relationship. It means sex. I think of dating as leading to a relationship. Relationships make me nervous. Just talk with the guy and ask him his definition of dating.

  • Hmmm...just depends on what one classifies as dating in my opinion if you have seen him a few times and talking on the phone a lot texting or maybe u can call it just a casual friendship gettting to know each other...your question is kinda vague LOL give us more detail :-)
