She said, "We've been seeing each other on and off for two years!

" Friend: "To a guy, that means: When I have a buzz on, I'd like to see you with your clothes off." I've never been able to hear someone use that expression since without laughing.

Indeed I know of many people who go from such an exclusive 1-1 state to an open polygamous relationship.

I say we were “dating” in the beginning because we were regularly going on dates right off the bat.

They started off as casual, and then things got a little more serious when we became exclusive.

Of course, life has a cute, charming way of making things unnecessarily complicated, so there are about one million different stages you can undergo within the “hooking up” anddating” stages.

But overall, odds are you're doing something that falls under one of the two umbrellas.

As far as I'm concerned, there are two types of pseudo-relationships you can be in that aren't real, bonafide relationships: You're either “hooking up” (casual booty calls, probably not going anywhere) or you're “dating” (going on dates, getting to know each other, hopefully going somewhere).
