To not take something seriously, believing the whole thing to be just a joke. It can also be used to describe not putting your full effort into something.
Example 1:

Teacher: All you do is fuck around in my class and break the rules. Don't blame me for your shitty grade.

Example 2:

Person 1: That same fucking cop arrested me again!

Person 2: Well then don't piss him off. I know that guy, and he doesn't fuck around.

1. To have sex with a wide (and often indiscriminate) selection of partners. 2. To have sex outside of a supposedly monogamous relationship. 3. To waste time, or to generally screw up a task.
(For 1): You're going to catch something really nasty if you keep fucking around with these sluts.

(For 2): Your boyfriend is so cool, I can't believe you fuck around behind his back.

(For 3): Get back to work, we don't have time to fuck around here!
