    What's the difference?

    Hi,

    What is the difference in meaning between the two sentences below:

    He has been dating her for about two months.
    He has been seeing her for about two months.

    Thanks.

    In today's world, no difference.
    Dating and seeing have come to indicate the same.

    Re: What's the difference?

    Of course, in other contexts "seeing" and "dating" are completely different things.
    He has been seeing her for about two months. ("He" or "her" could be a psychologist or physiotherapist or many other kinds of service or treatment providers)
