Dating has become very confusing now a days with all the terms available to define a relationship.So here's a breakdown of the difference between the most popular terms hooking up, being casual and in a relationship.

You might make small talk to be polite before and after, maybe small texts here and there, but all light and superficial. If you and your hook up are having "real" conversations, you're going down a slippery slope.

Either you'll move into the "dating" stage or one of you will develop feelings and the whole situation will fall apart.

If you are both mature enough to separate your emotional feelings from physical interactions, then you could be friends with benefits.

This is mildly different from hooking up, but falls in the same category.

This means you can and do hang out as friends, whether alone or in group settings.

However, this can be very tricky as spending time with each other outside of the bedroom can lead to feelings.

If you have a FWB and both of you have some sort of emotional attachment to each other but don't want commitment, that's dating. If you want to maintain a hook up status, limit the talking and focus on the physical. This is where you can both enjoy the physical aspect of a person and combine it with appreciating their company.

Here, you definitely spend quality time together and even go on dates.

You are intimate, not necessarily sex, but kissing, holding hands, etc. A distinguishing factor between friends with benefits and dating is that in a FWB scenario, there is absolutely no intention of it growing into something more whereas in dating, there is definitely potential and there is a desire to pursue it.

You are also (maybe) starting to be more involved in each other's lives. If you want to end things, there's no need for explanations. You can be exclusive while dating but that's basically being in a relationship.
