Indeed I know of many people who go from such an exclusive 1-1 state to an open polygamous relationship.
Such sexual practice, whilst being frowned on upon in some societies is common in others. In any case, relationship exclusivity is all about communication.
I asked some of my expat friends, most of whom are Canadian, about this.
In other words, seeing/dating someone implies that you haven't decided to make this an exclusive relationship, at least not yet. Seeing someone is a steady relationship that comes after you have dated.
i'm not sleeping with anyone or making commitments, i am hanging out, having fun, and stealing kisses here and there. I've heard both terms before but didn't think much about them until seeing this post.
99% of the men that emailed me had a problem with that status because it seems most people equate dating with being in a relationship/"seeing someone". I asked some of my expat friends, most of whom are Canadian, about this.
*bye* Seeing someone means that you have working eyes and the person is in your field of vision.What is the difference between "Seeing someone" and "Dating someone"? Logically speaking, a relationship should progress from being open and inclusive of all possibilities to one of exclusive nature with one person. I think if you are searching for exclusivity, then you should ask for it (or rather, ask for where you stand in the relationship in regards to this matter).Both terms refer to a relationship that is not yet in the serious stage.
If you say you are dating or seeing someone, you are inferring that you are going out with someone with at least some regularity.
I don't know the difference really, but this thread reminded me of sth. A mutual female friend was whining about her guy not wanting to get married. She said that the difference between romance for a man and a woman was, for a woman it was kind words, flowers, candy, a special dinner and plenty of long lasting foreplay.
