Men please explain this. What does 'I'm single and dating' mean?

I want to make this a topic of discussion because as a woman I don't understand what 'I'm single and dating' means'. When asked by Toolz in The Juice interview if he was dating, Banky W said, "I'm still very much single" and then he added. "I'm single and dating."

I know a lot of guys understand what he means by that, so please explain to us ladies. I'm thinking he means he doesn't have an official girlfriend or anyone he's serious with, but has a woman/women he takes out and chops any how...lol. I don't have a girlfriend but I get my groove-on on a regular basis. Is that what single and dating means? And are some women OK with being in situations like this?

Simply means he goes out on dates with diff girls. But he is NOT in a committed/serious relationship.

Dating a girl does not make you a married man,anything can happen while dating.So I think Banky is very correct.

he's single but he goes on dates..thats how i interpreted what he said o the interview. maybe he's having sex with the women....but the statement doesnt imply it. i am male by the way.

it simply means he doesnt have a woman he can call his but he's got loads of women he run stuffs with..........

am not suprised at u linda cos u like all typical naija girls dont understand the meaning of dating.....when you are dating it doesn't mean being lovers.....pls now equate dating with having a girlfriend.....dating means you both go out together but are not sexually involved or officially a couple.....so its possible...if he is just dating the girls and they allow him sleep with them without defining the relationship then that is their own lack of morals not banky's fault....by the way am a lady.....

He is single and dating means he is open to seeing new people. When you are dating, you are not in a relationship, you have the option of meeting new people and seeing how compatible you are.

I'm single and dating means, he is not officially with anyone bt interested/talking with couple of people.meaning that he goes on dates with different women of his interest. Hopefully he''ll narrow it down to one and make it officially.
Same goes for women when u have different guys asking you out, you hangout or go to dinner with them and eventually you end up making it official with the one you like most.
I'm dating is different from i'm in a relationship .

Single or married are relationship status.. the fact that i have a girlfriend whom im not yet officially married to does not change my status from being "SINGLE". Banky can be in a serious relationship which explain "IM DATING" but has not taken her to the alter which explain "IM SINGLE".... I think that's logical... i agree with him 100%

Ibrahim Jibril said...

Dating period between people is a time you get to know each other and it is very important to get to know who you could possibly spend the rest of your life with. A lot of relationships don't work cos people tend to just go from "Hello" to being partners.
Its up to women if they want to give it up to the guys, but then again i am sure they ladies would want to know if the man can satisfy her in bed as well. That p

Anonymous said...

Dating does not mean sex. Dating means you are spending time together to get to know the person. You can date 2 or 3 women at the same time b4 picking one. If they give you sex then its on them. Dating is not the same as being in a relationship or being an item. He is correct na naija misinterpretation of the word cause am because whenever they see a man and woman together they must be having sex so they redefined it themselves-newyorker

Sis Lin, it simply means dat he's got a lady/ladies dat he's presently datng bt hasn't popped d questn 2 anyone yet. He's vry much single(not yet married) buh got a gf/gfs. Probably, he jus met d gal. Cos if he had been datng her 4 a vry lng tym n he's sure dt he's gona marry her, he wudn't av used such words (single and dating), he wud av used words like ''i av smbdy in ma life, or am not single and am nt searchng''.
2me, any guy dt uses d word ''single and datng'', is a confirm player, cos he knws dt ladies wil b coming.

Na wa for u oh Linda. When asked wats ur marital status wat do u say? Ansa cld b single, married, divorced, widow(er). Banky isn't married or divorced that makes him single. Is he seeing som1?

Anonymous said...

Linda olodo huni, dating in nigeria means courting/being in a relationship and dats not totally correct. Dating actually means when a man/woman goes out on dates (they may fuck, they may not, depending on how rotten the parties are......lol) with different people. Only when u find the person u think u like den u can proceed to entering a relationship with that person.
So therefore, a person can be dating but still single.
Uncle banky, u haff old. Stop dating. Court n marry someone......or something! Agadi nwoke!

Anonymous said...

It just means that he doesn't value any of the people he has been dating enough to admit that he is in a relationship with any of them. I actually do feel sorry for whoever he has been dating, because you don't need a Deacon to tell you that Banky W is ashamed of all of you. Truth hurts!.

Linda One is SINGLE until he/she is legally married.

You can be dating seriously or even engaged to someone but still doesn't take your single status away.

I smile when people say I am not single because I am in a relationship.
If you are dating ,does that make you married?No you are still SINGLE.
If you are engaged does it make you married? NO you are a confirmed SINGLE.

Alrighty Linda this is what me thinks..... hell yes he is dating getting his grove on and committing right now is not on the agenda..... this is what they call having your cake and eating it.... I would like to elaborate ladies there is a huge difference between a man who is willing to settle down and one who is still playing the field..... MR W is still playing the field! So.... if you are serious about getting into a relationship with someone (and if you notice I didn't even go as far as marry) I would say Mr I'm single but dating is not the option for you cause if he dates you today best believe he will be dating some other chick tomorrow and so on...... ooooops I didn't say Im not a man but just giving my opinion as a woman of this MAD WORLD! Thanks gurl!!!

Linda i cant believe you asked is question.
SINGLE means he is not in a relationship.
DATING means that he takes woman on dates either because he is looking for a potential girlfriend or just a fuck buddy.
Dating does not have strings attracted to it so he can date 100 women if he wants.

Dating refers to having casual relationships with the aim of meeting someone for potential an exclusive relationship. You can date more than one person until you find divine toy have a connection with.

You can I.e go on several dates and meet someone and then start a relationship (so dating is the first step to an exclusive relationship) .

Linda even women can be single but dating. When dating you are just looking around you can ask someone out for dinner or movie or for picnic to see if you jell with someone before committing to be in a relationship with the person. You don't become an item instantly even though most women prefer it like that. When you get in a relationship it is confirmed and spoken about not just going to a party having a kiss and a cuddle and then claiming to be in a relationship. The other this is love grows. Its not all the time you fall in love instantly so spending time with the person may make the dating grow to become a relationship but before then it is just dating. I am woman as well but I realise how women are sometimes a nuisance and demand too much from a guy they have just met which makes women look very desperate.

i guess dating and being in a relationship are two different things..

a date: making specific plans (not random) to meet up/hang out.

a relationship: a commitment to stay faithful.

so yes it is very possible to be dating and single. i can ask different girls to meet up for dinner separately to get to know them better. in fact, why get into a relationship before knowing someone well?

Anonymous said...

Thought you were an international girl. When you are dating, it simply means you go out on dates. Lunch, dinner, cinemas, going out and doing stuff to allow both of you get to know each other better. Thats what you do when you go on dates or are dating, not sleeping together!

There are just 2 relationship statuses: Single and Married. All the others (Dating, it's complicated, open relationship are just blah blah).

MsKayks said...

I may be wrong yea. I once read in a relationship book where the author said "don't limit your playing fields, date more than one". I later understood dating meant going out and getting to know each other, not necessarily meaning that you are in a relationship. I guess that's what he meant. He's single but he's searching by dating. In the course of dating, you can decide to enter into a relationship, whether sexual or committed.

Yes Linda, many girls are comfortable with this. Peter Okoye is single yet dating the mother of his two kids. Famous guys attract women like brazilian weaves.

Just because a man is dating you does not mean u wld expect him to say,"no I'm not single"..when I met my hubby,he was dating another girl,but I came along,and he decided he wld rather settle down with me than his fat yoruba chic.

Queen Linda I guess you already know the answer to that, but let me say that Banky responded based on the question thrown at him."Are you dating"? And he said "I'm still very much single" then he added "I'm single and dating". He simply meant that he's not in a relationship but do have dates who perhaps grants benefits. So he's by this declaring his "single status". Besides he's cute and most ladies will want to have a taste of him.

Its because a lot of girls throw themselves on him, so there are a lot to choose from. But he means he has nt met d special one.

Linda, are you an illiterate? He is going on dates with women but he is not in a committed or steady relationship. SMH, common English.

I AM A WOMAN BUT I BELIEVE IT MEANS AS IT IS IN SIMPLE ENGLISH..............I AM SINGLE I.E. NOT MARRIED (YOU KNOW THE 4 OPTIONS WHEN YOU ARE FILLING A FORM - SINGLE, MARRIED, DIVORCED, WIDOWED)

BUT DATING, MEANING I AM SEEING SOMEONE AS BOYFRIEND & GIRLFRIEND

MY 2 CENTS......SHIKENA

Its simple.... if you are not married, you are single ! If you are single but you have a gf, then it means you are single and dating. If you have serious gf and you are filling a document, do you fill your marital status as married or single ?

He means just that :" he isnt in a serious relationship but if he goes ou and meets a nice lady he can ask her to a couple of dates and they both (to use your term) CHOP each other no strings attached. That is a very OK status so long as both parties involved know what they are in it for! Women are often times " SIngle and Dating too". And I get really tired of women, especially NIgerian Women, acting like they are victims when involved in a sexual relationship with a man! Like when you say he has women he ' chops anyhow" Trouble was it rape? Or is he the only one enjoying the sex? Stop this Hypocrisy ! Mind you I am a woman too! Single and Dating...LOL

Alicia says... said...

Its not always about sex Linda! He is probably just casually dating until he finds someone he wants to be a bit more serious with. Duh
So at your age Linda you still don't knew? Na WA for you oooo..

lobito said...

By single, he means he's not married, and by datin, of course dat he has a babe! Lobito rocks!

MEKA said...

U̶̲̥̅̊'ve ansad it urself,he's tryin 2 say he has no serious girl but goes on dates...and yes,frm my experience,alot of girls are comfortable 2 tag along evn wen dey knw U̶̲̥̅̊ hav a girl or a wife,as long as dey continue 2 get deir pecks which can be either cos U̶̲̥̅̊'re a celebrity,rich or cute,jst let dem hav smtin 2 show off 2 deir frnds.

Guys must be guys. He is just saying the truth the way it is. Linda don't tell me all the guys u dated promised to take u to their mama. Love your head man but I think it looks better with a cap. OZ

Queen B said...

I think that what he mearnt to say was that he is single and searching.

Skillzz said...

I guess u ve answered d question alredi. As a man it irritates me hearing such. Wats dating and single? #rubbish# at his age?

Miss BusyBody said...

I am also single and dating....

Anonymous said...

single and dating means you are NOT MARRIED but you're DATING. you are putting yourself out there. it doesn't mean you have multiple parters at once. there are people who are single and NOT dating..no r/ship watsover. hope that clears it.

Guess u r right.height of all forms of irresponsibility

Sapphire said...

if i take it one after the other before joining the whole phrase, every man or woman must fall under one category its either you are "single" or "married". Dating as used above simply just says you have a current girlfriend ( just one lady you have so much interest in) that you are going out with which you may get married to or return back to being single.

Single and dating means that you are single and dating women...trying out who's gonna be a good fit for you!!

Linda, you should be dating but remain single...it doesn't mean you have to sleep with guys or girls while you are dating; DATING is just what it means...dating...seeing people, hanging out, having fun, but you're not in an exclusive or committed relationship with anyone!!!
I know Naija people dont understand what dating means; but that's what it means in abroad!

Loool!! can't wait for all the babcock and island babes to bust Mr. Capable, only issue is whether the owner of this blog has the balls to let all those juicy comments come out raw...

Ewurafua said...

I am also a woman, but I understand what 'single and dating' means.
Dating someone means that you and the person are just getting to know each other. It is possible for a woman or a man to be dating 3 (or more or less) women/guys at a time. It doeant mean you are sleeping with them; but rather you are in the 'getting to know each other' phase.
Dating just means going out to eat or watching movie etc. Sometimes the people involved realise that there is no attraction, and don't even bother going on a second date.
It is once you go on these dates, and get to know the person, that you weed out the good from the bad, and narrow it down to one person you will like to be in a RELATIONSHIP with.

Anonymous said...

Linda, please speak for yourself when you say you don't understand. Simple english,'single and dating'...did he use big big grammar? He is seeing people, they are going on dates and making small talk. There is nothing wrong with that, how will you get to know people if you don't date

Anonymous said...

it means dat....he is ready to date more chicks....even d one dat re yet to b hatched.....make him dey deceive imself der....age wil soon tell on him...u cant b a fyn boi forever..neida can u b a celeb forever....anyway..make he enjoy imself jawe ...its his life

Nd stop beating about the bush

Means he is not married but in a relationship.I don't think it means any thing out of the ordinary.Is easy enough to be understood.

Corleone26 said...

"Singles and dating" means to guys what "Open relationship" means to girls

ENOBONG JAMES said...

D opposite of single is married, u'α̲̅я̩̥̊ε̲̣̣̣̥ either single or married regardless of d fact Ðα̲̅†̥ u'α̲̅я̩̥̊ε̲̣̣̣̥ dating. S̶̲̥̅Ơ̴̴̴̴̴̴͡ I tink he is dating a gal bt he isn't married

kejioladimeji said...

It simply means he is single but has a serious relationship with someone he is getting to marry as long as ur dating it simply means you are single. Shikenah!

Don Chris said...

You are clearly a frustrated goat. Look at you and it will answer my why attract the kind of girls your attract. Yeye fowl

forensic brain said...

It means he's not married buh has a girlfriend...this is not rocket science naa.Even my 2year old niece gave the exact interpretation..Linda if u like, scatter Banky's rship with your meaningless assumptions.
If u like don't post my comment, cos I have noticed that the only thing u know how to do best is to post Prince charming's comments.If you think he's gonna ask you out, then you in for a long thing.

jahzmene said...

#GBAM# as simple as dat!! Dis is d most true and reasonable comment of all d comments av bin reading includin my own comments!

Anonymous said...

Another meaning could be (excuse my crude words) he has phuck buddies and isn't commited to anyone.

forensic brain said...

Don't mind them..the meaning of dat statement is glaring, yet some pple like Linda wanna twist and give it a different meaning.

forensic brain said...

Really? So this is how you interpreted your English comprehension in secondary school...Damn,I pity ur English teacher, after all the effort he/she made.

You guys on this blog calling Lin Lin " olodo, learner etc" are the real mumu's. You guys honestly believe that Linda Ikeji does not understand what BW said in the interview. She knows her reader's very well ala Nigerians. We love to show off our small knowledge; and that translates into views and comments, which gives her blog the value it has. I love your hustle Linda, enough respect.

Nwa Mekiri Sense said...

Linda, i am also confused as u are. all these explanations, a lady can date 20 guys at a time. and when seen in a public place she can say ITS ONLY DATE". hope he understands. #dazmaopinion#
