It's the stage in middle/high school where you aren't quite dating yet, but you've both established that you like each other. It's exclusive but not completely yet.
"Are you dating Stacy?" "No but we have a thing"

having ‘a thing’ with someone means you both like each other and both of u know it. but not dating.
“hey are u and that guy dating yet?”
“no but we have a thing.”

dating but isn't official yet, still counts as dating though.
I think Stacy and Jamie are "a thing".

1. A phrase, word, or sensation on the internet
2. A phrase, word, or inside joke in your social group on the internet or irl; you have to be there, can't easily be explained.
1. Stop trying to make that meme a thing. It's never going to be a thing.

2. "Man I am hungry as shit." "What is that?" "It's a thing my friends and I did a while ago. You had to be there"

What even is a thing?! Like how do u know whether or not u r dating or it's just a friend thing. Cause hun idk about u but I ain't gonna sit this boy, that I literally adore, down and say, yo r we dating cause like, what are we!? No we don't just do that.
A thing is like a unspoken spoken secret...
Everyone knows it, no one says it, but yet it's like everyone talks about it.
"come on what are u guys?"

"Uhhh... A thing?"
"What the frick does that mean"
"Hun if I knew I would tell you!"
