Talking is a complicated form of a relationship in which two people often enjoy each others company and engage in sexual relations with out commitment. it is considered to be more serious than friends with benefits, because in certain rare instances 'talking' can lead to a relationship, where as just 'hooking up' never does. HOWEVER talking
very rarely results in a long term monogamous relationship because sexual relations occur much earlier with 'talking' than in normal dating, and one or both people grow accustomed to the freedom to hook up with other people, while simultaneously 'talking' to and banging the other person involved in the 'talking' relationship. This form of a relationship is very popular with people between the ages of 15-23, and most often results in broken hearted girls (due to the misunderstanding that talking isnt considered exclusive dating, even if the guy acts like they 'really like you' whenever youre around) and guys reaping all the sexual benefits/freedom.
