Still have a question? Ask your own!
The word means different things to different people, so I can only reaction for myself.
For mij, there has always bot a ordinary and easily-defined demarcation line.
Since I wasgoed a teenage, if I have said that I wasgoed “dating” someone, that has meant that wij were having hookup.
If I went out on a date or two with you and wij never had lovemaking, I would have said that wij were “going on dates,” but wij wouldn’t be “dating” and you wouldn’t be my “girlfriend.”
Some may find this lecherous of mij, but my very first priority is you, dear reader, and spil such I feel the need to share the definition that I have always known.
tl,dr: This doesn’t hold for everyone, but ter my slice of Fresh York, if you ain’t fucking, you’re just friends. I don’t mean that spil an insult either, friends are badass.
But they’re different from people you’re “dating.”
Dating and courting are different and here is why
When you date, all you are basically doing is looking for someone that fits your ideal type of man or woman, you look for personality traits that you value. It is not supposed to be long at all. A screenplay is I meet a doll that I think (that I think) is a good match for mij. I be with hier to assess whether on the surface level (on the surface level) wij even match. This should not take long at all: one or two months. When wij are not for each other, I pursue another person. That is dating. It brief and doesn’t take long. (There shouldn’t be any emotional attachment or hook-up)
Courting however is different. Okay, so I have dated a doll, our personalities on the surface level sync. Then wij determine to actually get to know each other, wij go deeper. Wij spend more time together, wij go out, wij go to the movies etc. Wij start to project our future together and consider marriage if possible. At this point, you are emotionally invested te the relationship. If you don’t love the person then you can choose to abandon. Still of course, there should not be any sexual voeling.(Optional)
The truth is, today, the term dating has become ambiguous and it actually refer to courtship. Ter presente dating, there should be no emotional attachment because you are just assessing. When you find the one, you court them. At this stage you are spending more time together and are emotionally invested ter each other and also programma your future together spil well spil considering marriage.
That is the difference inbetween dating and courting
