I was just going by what I learned in a discussion thread in the forums on OKC where Americans and Europeans all weighed in on what "dating" is, and by no means did I assume that it was black and white - but every European that added to the topic had very different definitions of dating than the Americans did. I don't have time to add details right now, but maybe later. I know I've posted about it here before. I'm certainly o expert and I could be completely clueless - I should've said LR's style of dating matches what I've been told is a very European way of doing it. But that's still lame, I know. Sorry to be such an ass!
