I have figured out that there is some period of "dating" multiple people, and then you pick one and you become monogamous, yes?
What happens to the other people?
What level of intimacy is ok when you are just "dating" and not exclusive?
At what point does exclusivity come into it?
What is the person considered before you are exclusive? Are they still a bf/gf?
Do you tell the people you are dating about the other people you are dating?
What are "dating" activities?
tl;dr: PLEASE EXPLAIN DATING TO ME. I DO NOT GET IT.
