Dating does not mean you can't go out with other people


Summary short_text

Speaking on eTV Ghana's Springboard Hangout show with host, Comfort Ocran, Annica explained that before two people get into a relationship, there are other stages that they go through and dating is one of them.

Dating, according to her, is the next step and that is when two people are getting to know each other to figure out if they can move forward to the next stage which is being in a relationship.

Dating exclusively, per her definition is where the freedom to date other people ends because that is when both parties decide and agree that they are dating each other only.
