Is there a difference? Because a guy asked me out and I said yes.. so we're going out. But then today as we were saying goodbye he asked me casually "Do you want to be my girlfriend" I couldn't tell if he was making a joke or if he really meant it but he was smiling and, so I just smile and said yes too. When we started going out I already considered him my boyfriend... I am so confused.

To me, a date is a one time thing.

Dating is something that happens occasionally with the same person, but with no commitment.

Going out means I exclusively see that person, but no formalities that I'm his girlfriend - but it is understood.

I think it is sweet that he asked you to be his girlfriend. Sounds like he is a romantic.

I guess I always kinda of thought of both dating and going out meaning that you were exclusively with that one person, assuming of course, that exclusivity had been discussed. I think these are terms that mean different things to different people, so it's always best to clarify. Relationships always involve such ambiguous terminology, hah. 

Congrats on the boyfriend!

I always thought they meant the same thing but the exclusivity depended on the people involved. I had always dated 1 person at a time although I had not always intended to.

That is so cute! I think the same way as others said, its just the same. But hey! you are one darling!! The fact that he formally asked you to be his girlfriend is the sweetest thing in the world!

Others would just stay exclusive to each other without confirming their relationship but your man, did the right thing!

Congratulations and stay in love, sweetie!

To me - Dating is like you are together but not official yet, just wanna go out with each other without the commitment. During the dating phase, some ppl can be 'dating' several people.

But it is mega cute how he asked you, some guys will just assume it becomes exclusive after a while.

Glad you got it sorted out. It was very sweet of him to "ask you out" on a date and then asked you to be his girlfriend. He kind of took it in steps and considered your feelings. :) /emoticons/[email protected] 2x" width="20" height="20" />

I agree with this, for the first couple months of my relationship i didn't really know I was in one...only because he never asked, but finally one day I got him to actually say it!

Relationships can be very confusing. I used to see this man and I thought that I was his girlfriend until one day I text him and jokingly said " are you dating anyone else?" expecting " of course not" for an answer and he replied " yes, and I wouldn't mind if you did the same" ! Now, I'm not old-fashioned but did fall out of my chair when I got his response. Of course I stopped seeing him thereafter. Why is it that men I click with turn out to be a...holes and good guys I never seem to fall in love with? Anyone else has the same problem?

This actually happened to me too!! i find it extremely rude for them to not make this clear in the beginning, just so situations like these wouldn't happen.
