Assunto:  to go steady
Mensagem:  You go steady with someone you date.  You do not go steady with your spouse.
"To go steady" is NOT the same as "to be steady".

go steady
To date someone exclusively.

Date one person exclusively, as in Parents often don't approve of their children's decision to go steady. This usage may be obsolescent. [Slang; c. 1900] Also see go together, def. 2; go with, def. 1.


If someone asks you to ´Go Steady´ - be sure to find out what they think it means! This phrase means quite different things to different people. Some people think it means to have each other as the "primary date" - but that you can see others if the main person isn´t around for some reason. Other people think this means you see each other and ONLY each other on dates. Some people even think this means that you should give up ALL opposite-sex friends, even if you´re not romantic with them!

The phrase to go steady mens (sic - means) a couple that is dating exclusively each other.
