Dating exclusively but not girlfriend
may be a little confusing, since nowadays it sometimes seems to imply something a little more serious than what we intend it to mean in relation to youth in the Church.There are two different types of dating: With casual dating, there is no exclusivity.(It is an exclusive relationship and neither are currently looking for another partner--but you would both still be considered "single") A less tactful term could be “fuck buddies” but sex is not a prerequisite, and emotions are involved.It's meant to be vague and confusing, because the relationship gets complicated when the lines aren't clearly defined, and the couples status is more than friends, but less than a committed relationship since emotions start to get involved.

He still has his online dating profile up and checks it regularly (we met on the site).
I trust him and know that he is being honest, but now that we have slept with each other, it makes me feel vulnerable and nervous.
