  • I havent a clue, I was in a high school where after 2 dates you were considered a couple and I thought that was rather silly.

    After h.s. I didnt date much and had tons of first dates. My hubby is my longest relationship and we were pretty much an item after date #3.

  • well my fiance and i were only 16 when we met, so you know at that age we didnt go out on dates first it as just "will you go out with me?" and then boom your boyfriend and girlfriend. but if i was to go out and date, i would date a guy for about a month or two before becoming a couple =]

  • The moment we started dating. Is there another way??? I really had no idea that dating didn't automatically mean 'couple', maybe I'm old-fashioned...

  • It depends on the people involved. I dated a couple of guys where even after months we never became a couple. On the other hand, my dh and I were a couple before our first official date. It depends on what is right for the people involved and probably includes things like age, personal situation, etc.
