Describes the decision made by one to, for example, actually attempt to learn a person's name before making out with him/her at a party. This, as well as other social implementations and improvements, intends to position one for the possibility of gaining a long term relationship. Thus, you are putting yourself in position to settle down
on a person.
This decision is often made after one has had an outrageously dirty weekend with uncountable hookups. While it can relate to both males and females, the term itself is quite masculine. Furthermore, males, typically being the social initiator, bare most of the weight in such scenarios. Thus, this term applies more to them.
