Dating is any social action performed as a pair or a group with the intention of each assessing the other’s suitability as their partner in an intimate relationship or as a spouse.

The word refers to the act of approving on a time and “date” when a pair can meet and engage in some social activity.

In many cultural practices, dates are arranged by a third party, who may be a family member, an acquaintance, or a devoted matchmaker.

Though dating rules in Western popular culture have become more relaxed during the 20th century, there is significant variation between individuals’ values.

For instance, when the activity costs money, it has traditionally been the man’s role to pay; in current times the practice of “going Dutch” (splitting the expenses) has emerged. Traditional dating behavior includes sharing entertainment or a meal.

In common, a person may date many different partners during the same time period in order to have the best chance of finding their most suitable available mate.
