Talking and dating are totally different terms. Talking means they are “exploring their options”. Dating means they are exclusive”. Now, when it comes to dating; for the guy, this usually means hes catching feelings and doesnt want her talking to other people (see what I did there).
What does it mean when someone says they are talking to someone?
Talking to someone meant interaction and interest with the intention to be exclusive by the person whos doing the talking, though there was still even some uncertainty in the other persons intention. The talking phase didnt influence the friend group.
Does texting count as talking?
Recent studies have shown that people are more likely to text than actually talk. Texting is great for quick short messages and meaningless banter. There are, however, situations where texting is not an acceptable means of communication.
How do you move from the talking stage to dating?
When texting or talking to them, be positive and uplifting. Show interest in them but down fawn all over them. Give them a compliment or two and make sure to always be positive and happy when you are together but dont start freaking out about them not texting you back fast enough or wanting to see you enough.
