Dating in high school bases
Like in baseball, the first base is a good place to build upon.
The step-up from kissing, but also a more vague term as it signals touching of the more interesting body parts like butt and boobs.
The fact is that every person has heard a high schooler brag about his romantic conquest with the lines like “yeah, I totally went to second base with Michelle last you, you know it, ha-ha”: high fives his friend.
Everyone’s heard it when they were in high school, or they were eavesdropping high schoolers to see how the newer generations have faltered, or at least in a movie.
Humans have been compared to other species in terms of sexual behavior.
Neurobiologist Robert Sapolsky constructed a reproductive spectrum with opposite poles being tournament species, in which males compete fiercely for reproductive privileges with females, and pair bond arrangements, in which a male and female will bond for life.
Dating may also involve two or more people who have already decided that they share romantic or sexual feelings toward each other.
These people will have dates on a regular basis, and they may or may not be having sexual relations.
And with this terminology, logically, home-run means full sexual intercourse.But since you Googled “what are the bases in dating” you must either be a non-US citizen or eight years old, in which case you should be quick as your older brother might get into the room and you’ll have to endure years of getting made fun of brutally for this search. But in case you’re not from the North American continent or Japan and have the luck of not knowing anything about baseball, this terminology can be too confusing and you end up knowing only that something sexual happened between two people. Baseball is a deeply complicated game with a lot of “ifs” and “but ifs” so it cannot be explained in great detail here, nor is that why you are here for.But you need to know some rules of this sport so you can understand the metaphor.The starting point in the sport, the first glimpse of success, so logically it’s the most innocent of the romantic actions – kissing.More specifically French kissing, as pecks aren’t that noteworthy.
These species-particular behavior patterns provide a context for aspects of human reproduction, including dating.
