First couple months of dating
Dating to me refers to two people who hang out exclusively with one another.Each person would willingly admit that they are “in a relationship.” To my mother, dating references a period in her life when she was casually going on real-live dates with an array of men, many of whom she was far from serious about.Does the term “dating” make you as uncomfortable as it makes me? If it doesn’t, we can assume you are not of this generation.Millennials can agree that dating is a word that needs analysis in and of itself.As it turns out, the guy next to you in class was actually checking his Tinder profile during the lecture break.
They will certainly exchange a drunken kiss at this phase, however going home together is optional.
While hooking up does not always mean exclusive, it does mean that they are giving the other person some level of priority over others guys/girls they may or may not be interacting with. If there is something relevant (an inside joke, a planning matter, etc.), mid day sober texting may occur once or twice a week.
But by no means are these two people in a constant state of communication.
Once they have both arrived in said location, one of the two will hopefully be intoxicated enough to directly approach the other.
Each respective group of friends are a security blanket.
