Default What is "dating"?

"Dating" now seems to be a very popular word without a conventional meaning. What it means seems to entirely depend on the word's user, and their mood at the moment of use.

Or is it just me?

People will have a one night casual sex thingy with someone and say "I had a date last night". A date? Really? "Well, do you want to see him again?" ... "Oh, heck no!" ... "Not a very good date then?" ... "Oh, yes! It was wonderful, fabulous!".... Really?

What does "dating" now mean? Anything at all?


Here's one take.:



Some discussion of the meaning of the term "dating" can be found in this other thread.:



bi, partnered, available
