I meant to post this earlier but.... anyway.

So.. saaay that you met somebody new and starting hanging out with 'em. Although you've been talking about meeting someone new to "date", you're not particularly interested in dating the person, but that person is interested in you and wants to get to know you better.

"Getting to know you.." is that considered dating someone?

You know it would be cool if you ended up liking the person [especially when you least expect it] but what happens when you end up not liking the person at all.. what do you say? How do you end it?

i don't think "getting to know you" is considered dating, at least in my eyes. i consider that to be the preparation stage in order to get to the "dating". but i don't see dating as being more than one person at a time. dating, to me, is exclusively seeing someone (meaning one person). so this whole getting to know you part, i think, is testing the waters with your cute little toe... and diving in is the dating part.

my sister begs to differ because there's always a getting to know you stage in dating and how else would you get to know the person more without going on dates with them or seeing them? that's her standpoint or part of it.

so if you don't like them after getting to know them, you be straight up. it's in the very beginning and it's better to say it off the bat then wait until they get all wet about you.

ya diiig?! =)

it depends on what you consider "dating" is. i agree that "dating" is meant for when you're talking to ONE person. but then again, you could be dating one person and talking to other people [haaayyy], is that bad by the way? haha.. so i guess it all comes down to what you think it is. I also consider dating as in going out on dates: dinner, movies, blah blah blah, where one person pays for the two [whether it be the guy or girl].

if you're dating and you end up not liking them, then be straight about it. don't all of a sudden stop talking to them. just tell them that its not working out, and that you'd feel more comfortable just being friends. its gonna suck for him, and gonna be hard for you to say, but sometimes being blunt comes across better. remember, we men and women! not boys and girls!

. ... so whats DUDES name, huh?! better be respectful to ya! shiiii..
