Dating is a stage of romantic or sexual relationships in humans whereby two people meet socially, possibly as friends or with the aim of each assessing the other's suitability as a prospective partner in a more committed intimate relationship or marriage.
It can be a form of courtship that consists of social activities done by the couple.
The protocols and practices of dating, and the terms used to describe it, vary considerably from country to country and over time.
While the term has several meanings, the most frequent usage refers to two people exploring whether they are romantically or sexually compatible by participating in dates with the other.
Mimi said that when a couple had gone out on two or three dates, the practice was to begin “going steady”—in modern terms, become exclusive.
She said that a boy who didn’t ask you to go steady after a couple dates was probably bad news.
