Yep, I learned from a thread on the forums at OKCupid that "dating' means a range of different things in different countries. In some places, it's a preliminary step before any commitment is made and in other places it is a commitment, while in yet other places it is more like just having a buddy for activities.
The world opens up... when you do.
