Family life counsellor and educator for the Central Jamaica Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, Anthony Gordon, said while he does not condone these relationships, they are increasingly becoming a part of the popular culture."It is really the dynamics and dynamism that is evolving in this new age where relationships are concerned and so I am aware that from time to time these terms usually evolve," he said."While I understand the coding and the cultural dynamism in them, I caution persons in relationships to be careful because people might get involved in something and they are not truly aware that they are getting into," he said It is upon this premise that the counsellor cautioned young ladies getting involved in relationships to first of all understand what the various codes mean, and decide whether they accept them as a part of their relationship vocabulary.
So ladies, if a guy never introduces you as his girlfriend, his fiancée, or his wife, chances are he might have very well filed you under one of these headings in his little black book.1. This is the most common of them all, and has probably given credence to the argument that it is impossible for two individuals from opposite sexes to remain just friends.
They're the ones who might go on a date or two every few weeks, but believe the right person will walk into their lives when they aren't looking.
They're comfortable with whom they've become and don't feel the need to search for someone they can happily date. The “serial daters” are the most dangerous out of the three dating types who inhabit our world of romance.
They're the tricky ones who will sweep you off your feet with witty charm and romantic execution and then leave you bewildered when you run into them the next day at a bar with their arms wrapped around another person.
They're left without a number to call or a person to text and pounce from one potential partner to the next, almost instantaneously.
Then there are the types of people in the world (like me) who never know how many dates it will take for it to be appropriate to call someone your boyfriend (or girlfriend)… I’m dating this guy who is basically my boyfriend, but he is my non-boyfriend — a term I used when we were non-exclusive, and a term I continue to use even though we are now exclusive.

How do you break up with someone if you’re not even in a relationship?
Sure, ghosting might be OK if you’re in the early stages of messaging but after you’ve been on a date, most people would say that’s just rude.
In the bizarre world of romance that exists today — the “hook-up culture,” if you will — there are three types of people: the lovers, the loners and, of course, the serial daters.
The “lovers” are exactly what you would assume they are: hopeless romantics who long for an everlasting relationship with their soul mates and who will stay involved with “the one” for months and months, or even years, without a second thought.
