I don’t care how many guys Taylor dates and neither should anyone else. Here’s why I was left so confused: what is dating to Taylor Swift?The article immediately made all of us here at the Gurl office wonder what dating means to Tay-Tay herself…and actually, what does dating even mean to any of us? After asking anyone who would listen to me, I’ve come to the conclusion that dating means different things to different people.
Online dating, and our ability to be in constant contact with everyone we know via text, email or social media make us unwilling to commit to one person, and more likely to want to hedge our bets. In an article I wrote earlier this year about modern dating, I used the example of a man I’d been sleeping with for over a year, who got cross when I referred to him as my boyfriend.
Or is dating a term reserved for only very casual relationships? In my opinion, dating can be a little more casual or more serious.
For me, I don’t have to call a dude my official boyfriend in order to say that I “dated” him – and Gurl writer Caitlin is on the same page as me.
As stated before, during this time there should be little or no physical contact, as this is something that should wait until marriage (1 Corinthians -20).
Courtship takes the position that the two people have no physical contact at all (no touching, no hand-holding, no kissing) until marriage.
