The difference between dating and being in a relationship
Lavaliering is a "pre-engagement" engagement that is a tradition in the Greek life of college campuses.
Ironically however, as their relationship is not clouded by fears and complications of commitment, long-term relationships and related issues.
Such phenomena as hooking up and lavaliering are widely prominent among university and college students.
Hooking up is a world wide phenomenon that involves two individuals having a sexual encounter without interest in commitment.
An older woman might have the greatest time of her life dating an energetic, exciting, attractive young man, but she is also likely to feel that she is wasting her time being with a younger guy and knowing that it is not going to turn into a long-term relationship, instead of pursuing a relationship with a man with whom she could establish a family and have children in the nearest future as the biology would dictate to a woman who is aware that her biological clock is ticking.
But then again – not every woman wants family and children.
