to me talking is you when you are really into someone and want to be in a relationship with them but want to make sure you 100% like that person and ready to be with them in a relationship before you confirm anything it’s like you don’t want to go into a relationship blind about that person and half way through realize you don’t actually like them. so your “talking” with them first and if your talking to someone your basically taken idc.
girl: hey matt your really cute we should hook up sometime🥰
