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.

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!"
