When two people are dating, they are not on the same page as far as priorities and love are concerned.
It might be that one of them is planning to get rid of the other person as soon as the date ends and the other person is head over heels in love with the not-so-interested one.
It was established early on that neither of us date multiple people at the same time and that we will be/are exclusive.
As I said, a distinction is made occasionally when we talk. Talk to your boyfriend to get things squared away!!!
Part of me feels there's no difference since we act like BF/GF; however, there seems to be a distinction made during conversations with my....well, the guy I'm dating exclusively.
Even though the two words, relationship and dating, involve two particular persons, these two terms cannot be more different from each other.For instance, during conversation, he might say "I like to do XYZ with my girlfriend..the girl I'm dating..."In the big scheme of things, it's not a big deal - but I am curious. No reason to bring it up if things are going well and there isn't a concern that he's seeing other people anyways. Or did he say or do something to make you think he isn't as serious as you are?Before I ask him his thoughts, I am looking for opinions on whether you guys make this distinction yourselves. Holy crap that's a whole lot of mess tied up with the definition of labels. I've had the discussion many times but to be honest I don't think I've ever actually used the term "mutually exclusive" outside of these message boards. Talk things out with him I treat those as the same thing..Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate.I'm curious if any of you guys feel there is any substantial difference between dating a girl exclusively and being her boyfriend?Isn't the person you are dating the same person that you are in a relationship with? Even though relationship and dating are two sides of the same coin, the fact that they have n-number of differences cannot be denied.
