I would like to, but literally every single person that I am interested in is taken and rather happy about it, so that takes romantic relations of any kind off the table for the foreseeable future.
That's not really what dating is. Dating is spending time, often in the form of some activity, usually in a public place, with someone you're interested in getting to know more and engaging in a romantic relationship with. Alternatively, it's doing those things with somebody you're already in a relationship with. If you and your gf decided to go check out a movie together, or go to an aquarium or something - those are dates. You don't need to dress up and go to a fancy restaurant for it to be considered a date.Zachary Amaranth said:I hated the whole dog and pony show of dating, and routinely had to go to places I wouldn't normally frequent to engage in a social ritual I don't particularly like.
You know, this thread in itself demonstrates that people don't agree on what dating is. I knew this going in, which is why I didn't define or specify terms before asking for results. I gave my own opinion and lef tit at that.NoeL said:That's not really what dating is.
Hate to say it, but the Japanese didn't exactly invent arranged marriage.dylanmc12 said:I've been good friends with a female (yes, a female) since high school. Have we been dating? ...Ugh... I don't actually know.
Bottom line: Why date when you could go straight to omiai? Damnit, the Japanese are brilliant.
Bottomer line: No.
