deliberately short-term sexual relationship between two people. Longer than a one-night stand, not as serious-sounding as "affair", more frankly physical than the discreet or twee "dalliance", the word has the associations of a much-needed sexual relief from stress, worry or hangups. No deep personal involvement required, just the sex and a bit of attention.
Office gossip: Oh, by the way, I heard about your secretary's latest fling!
Minor boss: Whaurrgh (choking on his croissant) - How did you find out?
Office gossip: ... With one of the young trainees. Hey, just a minute (grinning with delight) ....
Minor boss: What? Look, I didn't say anything! Err ... which trainee? (under his breath: the double-dealing BITCH!)

When you're NOT in a relationship with the other person but you do have the privilages as someone that is in one. Often very short-term, can be sexual or non-sexual, such as a kiss, hug, holding hands or dates. Stress on the fact that there is no commitment and not serious.

Something that should have been flung by now.
Jane: Matt and Serena are getting engaged!
Jane: Wasn't their thing supposed to be like a seventh grade fling?

More romantic than "friends with benefits" but not an actual relationship.
"I thought you and him were just a fling? Why did you tell your crack-head uncle that your boyfriend moved away? ""It makes his ass stop asking me when I'll finally get a man-friend."

To throw an object with great force, usually in a discontent manner.
The action of flailing the arms in a vicious manner while pertruding outwards from the side of the body.
I'm going to fling it out the window if you don't stop harrassing me.

Those damn kids kept flinging stones at my cat.

I couldn't hold him down because he kept flinging his arms all over the place.
