For I don’t actually know what it means.
Sure, I know what “a date” is. I can think of a range of meanings for “dating”. But what is it taken to mean generally?
Moby has insisted that he and Natalie Portman did date, a day after the Oscar-winning actress denied they had been in a relationship and described him as “creepy”.
Portman, in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, dismissed claims in Moby’s book that the pair had been romantically involved.
“I was surprised to hear that he characterised the very short time that I knew him as dating because my recollection is a much older man being creepy with me when I just had graduated high school,” she said.
The American singer responded on Wednesday, and swore that he was telling the truth, posting a photograph of the pair together on Instagram.
Does “dating” mean they went for ice cream together? In which case, so what? Or does it mean they bonked? In which case Moby should be horsewhipped for bringing the subject up of course.
