Clinical psychologist Sonya Rhodes, also of New York, says a date today "transcends this sort of 'hanging out culture.' ""A date shows some special interest in a special person.
Bring him or her to dinner with friends, family gatherings, pray together, eat together.
A relationship is starting to get serious when you and your partner proudly display each other as significant others in the public eye.
You have no problem mentioning each other in tweets, posting photos together in Instagram pictures or including each other in Facebook status updates.

To many, this might sound like your average dating concept. Admittedly, yes, the first time you broach the subject on any level might be awkward.
