If those sound like the same thing to you, I'm officially jealous of your brain.
There are major differences between the two states of romantic bonding, marked by associated, different signs.
But when things build up to a for real relationship, you might even tell them their original code name, and you two will laugh it off. As the code name dies out, you start referring to this person by their real name when with friends and family. You know, I don't just add every one of my friends' random hookups on Facebook.In "just dating" things, it's too scary to laugh off the fart sounds belly skin sometimes make while you're boning.But at this point, y'all are masters of chuckling it off, then getting back to business.So we're on the same page, let's all assume the definition of "just dating" means a far more casual, preliminary stage that precedes a "for real" relationship."Just dating" isn't necessarily an exclusive arrangement, and includes far fewer expectations yet heaps more coolness.
