The girl that you've been dating for years and are now cheating on but won't leave you. She has no idea and believes everything you say. She also doesn't question spending entire weekends with your "friends".
Me: What are you doing this weekend?

Friend: The reserves planned a girl's night, so I told my reserve that I was going to hang out with you... You got me covered???

Contrary to the other definition, reserved is a characteristic of a person whom socializes sparingly.

It is shown not out of inability to converse or work with others, but instead permits them to be self-aware of whom, what, when, where, why and how they talk to people.

A reserved person may speak less in groups because they prefer to listen to what is being said, and who is saying it.

When they have formulated a contribution to a discussion, it's generally well thought out.

Reserved people garner the respect of their peers and do not seek to offend intentionally.

As opposed to an anti-social or asocial person, reserved people DO know how to talk to their peers and delight in interaction, although very brief.

This is not to be conflated with "socially awkward" or "socially retarded", or even "shy"; all of which stem from social anxiety, but hold some form of connection to being reserved.
A vice-chair or CEO of a Fortune 500 company may be reserved, especially when speaking to the media or to international clients.

When two people are not dating but are going to date in the future. It's that middle stage between friends and boyfriend and girlfriend (or two same gender couples).
Rob: "Hey are you you and Jenna dating?"

Marcus: "No we're reserved, she'll be my girlfriend soon."

This term can be also related to being engaged to someone except rather it being between dating to marriage it's between friends and dating.

When a boy talks to you and treats you like a girlfriend but won't ask you to be his girlfriend, so he gives you the title "bestfriend".

Also when you try to talk to someone else they get very upset and jealous as if y'all are in a relationship.......BUT YOUR NOT!

A relationship that is "on reserve" is one in which there is mutual love or attraction, but one or both parties is not ready for a relationship for one reason or another. They will then be "on reserve" until both members are ready for a relationship.

Relationships on reserve often, but not always, are of the friends with benefits or friends with minor benefits category. In this case, such a relationship may be called "friends with (minor) benefits on reserve".
Bob: Is Sally your girlfriend?

Jack: Not really. She just got out of a bad relationship and isn't ready for another one yet.

Bob: Do you guys have feelings for each other, though?

Jack: Yeah; we're on reserve for now.
