I Want to Know What "Dating" Means to You

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 56 People

    Soul Searching

    I've never been interested in casual dating to begin with, so my definition of "dating" has mystical undertones. "Dating" means attempting to find your soulmate. Now I understand that not everyone believes in soulmates, but I do.
