While the term has several meanings, the most frequent usage refers to two or more people exploring whether they are romantically or sexually compatible by participating in dates with the other.
Unlike with your favorite fuck buddy who you’ve got on speed dial, you will probably actually go out with the girl you are casually dating, such as meeting for drinks (hence the term casual ).
But casual dating doesn’t have the commitment or closeness associated with an open relationship or even a friend with benefits.

Honey, this is what I meant when I said that his idea of "not seeing other people" means that you are not supposed to, but he can. I can do what I want..." He is talking out of both sides of his mouth. He says--we are not exclusive He also says--but we don't see other people That is a classic way to keep you on his hook while he looks around. But if you've only been seeing each other for a few dates or a month or two, it's just as simple as you are dating. I've been seeing a wonderful woman for the past month.

You cannot ask someone to not see other people but at the same time not make them exclusive. I can definitely see things going somewhere in the future, but neither of us refer to each other as boyfriend or girlfriend yet. That means he has zero attachment to you or a relationship with you and just wants the potential benefits that would go along with a real relationship. This means he wants to sleep with you, without ties, oh and the biggest plus ever!
And because we are living in the digital age, these euphemisms also come with their own codes too.
Family life counsellor and educator for the Central Jamaica Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, Anthony Gordon, said while he does not condone these relationships, they are increasingly becoming a part of the popular culture."It is really the dynamics and dynamism that is evolving in this new age where relationships are concerned and so I am aware that from time to time these terms usually evolve," he said."While I understand the coding and the cultural dynamism in them, I caution persons in relationships to be careful because people might get involved in something and they are not truly aware that they are getting into," he said It is upon this premise that the counsellor cautioned young ladies getting involved in relationships to first of all understand what the various codes mean, and decide whether they accept them as a part of their relationship vocabulary.
It can be a form of courtship that consists of social activities done by the couple.
The protocols and practices of dating, and the terms used to describe it, vary considerably from country to country and over time.
This period of courtship is sometimes seen as a precursor to engagement or marriage.
