The stage between 'just friends' and 'dating'. Usually ends badly without closure, as there wasn't an actual relationship. Almost never materializes into a real relationship either. Also really stupid. Basically friends with benefits, but both parties have feelings for the other. Really confusing because that should just be dating. There shouldn't be an in between period of awkwardness and 'defining the relationship'.
"I see Kim and Tom together a lot! Are they dating?"

"No, they're talking."

"Oh. That's dumb."

When you and someone who are both fond of each other are possibly a couple but certainly each other's slam pieces.

A weird state between being fwb or dating.
Kyle: Yo how long have you and Susie been dating now?

Billy: Bro we aren't dating we're just "talking."

Kyle: Ahh gotcha, good luck with that.

in the land before time, talking was only about making sounds coming from your mouth.
now talking is texting "being textual" among other things
yes, you heard me. getting "textual" .
Talking is categorized by two people conversing on the phone or texting, with multiple winking smilies a day and possibilities of dating/hooking up at some point...until that glorious day you are said to be "just talking" :(
"oh hey nicole...are you and JL going out now?"
*crying "no...we're just talking...." *sobbs in disappointment

I thought I was talking to him, but then the douchebag moved to canada!

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.

When two people are between friends with benefits and an exclusive relationship.
M:So how are things with Jim?
E: I'm not sure, its more than a physical thing, but we're definitely not dating.
M:You're totally talking. It's a Michigan thing.

Are they dating?
No, they're just talking.
