The investigators also found that women tend to be attracted to screen names that signal intelligence, such as "Cultured," while men are more drawn to names that suggest physical features, such as "Blondie" or "Cutie."Women tend to be interested in men who demonstrate bravery and risk-taking, the study results indicate.

Obviously, we all have different meanings of the word dating.

Or is dating a term reserved for only very casual relationships? In my opinion, dating can be a little more casual or more serious.
For me, I don’t have to call a dude my official boyfriend in order to say that I “dated” him – and Gurl writer Caitlin is on the same page as me.
The original dating game shows were introduced by television producer Chuck Barris.
