Dating may also involve two or more people who have already decided that they share romantic or sexual feelings toward each other.These people will have dates on a regular basis, and they may or may not be having sexual relations.
It is a form of courtship, consisting of social activities done by the couple, either alone or with others.
The protocols and practices of dating, and the terms used to describe it, vary considerably from country to country and over time.
There are numerous superstitions focused on cats in France.
So if you believe in luck and wouldn’t mind some good fortune, then never cross a French stream holding a cat.
The payment would apparently break the superstition and you two can carry on being chums.
