i think "dating" someone is liek when you go out on dates with someone like to the movies and to dinner but your not actually an official couple or anything and "going out" is when your actually in a relationship and you are together and you hug and kiss and do "other things" possibly... other than that i see no difference.. there basically the same thing...

dating-An instance of an action, process, or act: a gathering.
An action or process connected with a specified thing
(testing whether you want to see them more)

going out-seeing someone a lot/long time

dating is like getting to know each other, first stage of a relation ship.

going out is where your boyfriend and girlfriend. Closer to eachother and sort of official.

To me there is no difference, but I think that if you are going out then you aren't officially with the person you are just together and spend time with each other, etc. If you are dating the person, then you have the label of boyfriend and girlfriend.

Like dating is like when you repeatedly see someone and goin out is when you do it only a once or a couple times and you dont really have feelings for one another

Well whenever two people are dating they aren't girlfriend and boyfriend yet. They can still date around with other people and see what other people are like and everything. So basically, your single. ( or you could focus on dating one person until you ask them to be your girlfriend/boyfriend )

Going out is whenever you two are girlfriend and boyfriend and you of course, cannot date anyone else because you two are together. I hope I helped.

Mercy_x_Me answered Tuesday November 22 2005, 7:46 pm:
I'd say it's pretty much similar but some people define it differently. Going out is being officially together and you cannot see/kiss/be involved with anybody else, basically your exclusive. Dating is just like going out on dates and seeing how you feel about that other person. But, I see them as meaning the same thing. I guess it depends who you are and what you're referring too.

There isn't much of a difference. People say "going out" in highschool alot and then older people say "Dating". It's basically the same thing as having a boyfriend or girlfriend.

Example sentence: "I've been dating my boyfriend for a year and a half"

"I've been going out with my boyfriend for a year and a half" It means the same thing. It just means that you are with them.

There is not much of a differece. Dating is the modern word and it's not anymore serious then just saying going out.

Dating isnt quite as.. solid.

With going out with someone there is usually the question, it is usually seen as slightly more binding than dating which is more casual.

Take care xx
