quicko: flippantly dating

I really don't know that this is true, but I recently heard Americans being accused of being terribly flippant daters -- i.e., that we date many people simultaneously, whereas Australians, I'm told, stick to one person at a time.  Anyone else noticed this?  The opposite?  Personally, I plea the Fifth and that's all you're getting out of me!

I think you need a d on the end of your plea.

We tend to be 'monogamous' if we've reached the point of 'going out with' someone. "Sue is going out with Bob" means that they are (possibly) 'going steady' in your parlance, as opposed to Sue is being taken out by Bob on a first date type of thing.
