Dating in the dark couple status
You're dating someone if you know where they grew up, their opinion on Trump, and maybe how close they are with their mom.
No, you aren't in a relationship with them, but you are getting to know them and thus, dating. If your communication nets at zero when you aren't talking logistics for a night together, you're probably not all that interested in being romantic outside of the occasional spoon.
Going out to the movies wouldn't necessarily mean that they want to be with you forever, but it would suggest a certain effort reserved for more traditional "dating."Even if it's just a drink, you're dating.
Again, I think having a thing that you do together other than just smashing your mouths together makes whatever you and your person are doing more than just "hooking up." Concerts, walks in the park, museums...
If they are at Getting along OK or lower, the Mii is a little worried about their current relationship with their friend/sweetheart/spouse.
The player can tell them that they are either great together, okay together, or not compatible.
If a fight fails to be resolved, they can potentially be removed from respective relationship list and may revert back to acquaintances, but there's a chance they may become friends and/or fight again.
The different categories will have different descriptions for their relationship levels.
When a Mii confesses to their crush and gets rejected, their status will drop one or two levels.
If they try to confess again and still fail, the status will not go further down.
If you're only meeting up once it's dark outside, you're not dating; you're hooking up. If you're having fun, though, keep "hanging."This is textbook old school dating.
If it's been more than three dates out in public together, you've been dating this person, for whatever period of time that is.
