Ah, I remember the days when dating used to be simple. You were either dating or you weren’t. OK, actually, that was a total lie. I have no recollection of that time because I’m only 24 years old, and throughout my lifetime, dating has been a total MESS. The biggest problem here is that nobody knows what anything means anymore! Even the term “dating” could mean casually going on dates to one person, while it means being in a relationship to another. And don’t even get me STARTED on “hanging out.” What does “hanging out” mean ?!
To me, “hanging out” doesn’t stand on it’s own as a “label” for your relationship with someone. Hanging out is just something you do. I hang out with my boyfriend just like I hang out with my mama and my best friend. Sometimes, I even hang out with people I don’t really like that much! Hanging out, to me, means literally nothing more than pas day with another human. But, apparently, to some people, “hanging out” is a relationship status. Unfortunately, despite it being a relationship status, lots of people still don’t truly know what that means. People are so confused by it that the question “Guys, what does it mean when you’re “hanging out” with someone, in terms of dating? ” was posed on a recent Reddit thread.
