A casual expression not to be confused with actually asking someone out on a date. At times, when you are to pussy to reject someone, u simply say "it's a date" even tho you dont wanna be a part of it.

it's sometimes accompanied with a ;).. BUT it should be read with a sarcastic undertone if the ;) has been added.

It can be interpreted wrong, be careful with how you use this! To avoid misinterpretation, add the ;)

Dating is where two people who are attracted to each other spend time together to see if they also can stand to be around each other most of the time, if this is successful they develop a relationship, although sometimes a relationship develops anyways if the people can't find anybody else to date them, or are very lonely or one person is only attracted to the other and pretends to be in love with the second unfortunate person who has the misunderstanding that they have found love. This occurs quite often and eventully leads to something called cheating.
