    Re: date somebody/go out with somebody

    The first is fine. The second needs to be: How long have you two been going out (together)?

    You use go out with + person:

    How long has she been going out with Jack/him?

    Re: date somebody/go out with somebody

    I'd use "How long have you two been going out with each other?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
