There’s no faking, no role-playing, and no enabling—your connection is rooted in trust.
So I got into my head and I started to ask around (both men and women) and realized that everyone has an unclear definition of different stages of relationships. Dating does not mean you are in a monogamous relationship. Dating Mathematics: The most simple way to define dating is through a mathematical equations.
All the meter-maid wanted to know is if he was parking his car or leaving.
I think people (usually men) get freaked out when they hear the word “dating” and automatically think “dating” means you are in a monogamous relationship. Yes…if you only go on one date it is not considered dating.
But if you’ve gone on multiple dates (three to be safe) with a person, then you two are dating. A date doesn’t begin with going over to a guy’s house to borrow a hammer after 9pm and end up banging it out for an hour.
A date consists of two people making plans to go out to a public place over dinner or drinks with the intent to get to know one another better (not just to get laid). Hook-up Text another Hook-up = Hooking-up You meet a guy at a bar, flirting happens, you share a kiss, you go back to his house and you hook up.
Now whether or not you have sex is your business…either way it’s still a hook up.
Hook-up “I like to keep things casual.” = Hook-up (red flag) He only texts you and never picks up the phone to call you.
= Hook-up (red flag) Makes plans to see you again, while you are on the date. = Dating Moves your hair out of your face and does the little stare.
Plus, your ability to be open and honest with each other is another sign of a healthy relationship.
