I Have a Pickle to Pick With U

Ok so my mind is totally bamboozled….I need to know if I’m right or wrong….ok so what is the difference between talking to someone (in my words = wasting my time), dating (in my words = someone of potential boo material), and a relationship (in my words = we are together, we are faithful to each other)….now I need to know am I right or am I wrong….because I am just trying to get this down to a SCIENCE so I can end with all FUTURE mistakes….LMAO
