is normally what teens do if they are afraid of commitment or just dont want to make a full commitment to their partner. if someone is facing they are still allowed to go with, meet or face someone else even if they are already facing someone. when u are facing someone u still do things u would do with a steady boy/girlfriend eg, finger, suck off, fuck, lick out, etc. but would be considered sluttish if they arent even going steady.
