I would agree that it could be seen as dating. This is how I see it. Sometimes its not so much a fizzling out so much as a carrying on a friendship because you already socialized together thing. Almost like people are trying each other on or using each other for a specific need one time only or only when that moment arises again. Some call this "networking" apparently, although I have only ever heard this term once before from someone.
