Someone said to me, "Adrian is dating Michelle" But actually what he meant was that they were going to have the first date in the near future.
Can I state that I am dating someone if we never did it before, just because its a sure thing to happen?
This is why knowing the exact moment of birth is so important to astrologers.
Most predictive work relies more heavily on houses (which are again determined by the birth time and thus the ascendant) than most lay people realize.
If you say they are "dating this weekend," the qualifier suggests they have an impending date this weekend.
gone on an actual date at the time of utterance seems largely irrelevant to me.
If you say x and y are "dating," you are using the present progressive without qualification.
This would imply they have a dating relationship now.
Over the past few years, I’ve written many times about the importance of boundaries, the personal electric fence that will all need that sets limits not only for others and how they treat you, but also for ourselves with what we’ll put up with.
I work hard to push the message home because particularly with women and speaking from personal experience, we don’t always live and love with our self-esteem in tow, which then causes our confidence to be dented further as well as eroding our perceived value and not having us believing that we’re worthwhile. They could literally be treated every which way and somehow they’d find their way back to the relationship boardroom trying to hold together the ‘deal’ somehow.
All of a sudden they’re too ‘nice’, there’s no chemistry, they don’t have enough of the same interests, eat their dinner funny, or whatever.
Some people do have deal breakers that mean that even when they’re happy in a good relationship, they’d kill it off for something they could stand to sanity check.
Indeed I know of many people who go from such an exclusive 1-1 state to an open polygamous relationship.
