Dating also means today that you are not necessarily committed to the same person. One person might be dating two to three people at the same time, and there is no pressure for being exclusive with the one you are going out with. Young adults also start dating casually in order to spend time together with the person of their choice. They spend time in understanding the person and figuring out if there are feelings involved which might lead to a more serious kind of relationship where exclusivity is required. Dating is the stage when one person, without getting very emotionally attached with another person, assesses their chances of a more serious relationship.
