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."

Get the Fling mug.
The act of leaving your boyfriend or husband while at a public venue such as a club or bar to go fuck a stranger you met and then return to your husband or boyfriend at that same venue a short time later.
Don't worry about my husband, he'll wait here patiently for me while I go flinging.

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.
"It was just a fling with David... I don't expect it to go into a relationship."

Two people who don't want a serious relationship but are in a similar thing to it, with no attachments.
I just want a little something with someone, to go out on cute dates and cuddle, before I go back to school, like a fling for the summer.
