Definition of dating someone
This expression derives from the fable of the monkey and the cat.
I’m sorry, did we forget about Taylor Lautner, Joe Jonas, John Mayer, Cory Monteith and Jake Gyllenhaal (and those I forgot about)?Lord Durham appears to be pulling at 3 wires at the same time—not that the 3 papers—the Times, Examiner and Spectator are his puppets, but they speak his opinions.(Samuel Rogers, Letters to Lord Holland, 1834)The allusion is to a puppeteer who, from behind the scenes, controls the movements of the puppets on stage by pulling on the strings or wires attached to them.Because, Taylor, you’ve been linked to all of those dudes since 2010. I’m not her biggest fan, but I’m not trying to slut-shame her here.Hold on a sec: please don’t jump down my throat because you think I’m making fun of Taylor for the amount of guys she’s dated – I’m not. There’s nothing wrong with a girl who dates around.
