    Whey they are not seeing each other

    Whey they are not seeing each other but something is happening between them, what do you say?

    "They are not seeing each other (or going out with each other) but they are going well with each other?"

    Is this correct?

    "They are still an item." (Maybe)
    It's hard to give a definitive answer because "seeing each other" and "something happening" can be interpreted in numerous ways.

    They are not yet an established couple, maybe?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    They're flirting?
    They're going on a few dates to see how it goes?

    Ah. I think I interpreted the OP wrongly. I wondered how they could be flirting or going on dates if they weren't even seeing each other.

    NOT A TEACHER

    Perhaps you could say, 'They're testing the waters.'

    Re: Whey they are not seeing each other

    Maybe they're meeting once a week for language practice?

    Re: Whey they are not seeing each other

    They could of course be having intimate relationships (sex) but not actually be dating or officially seeing each other. They could just be meeting up for sex. That would certainly count as "something happening between them".
