If you want to tell a friend that you are currently going on dates with someone but it is not yet serious, you can simply say, 'I am seeing someone.' In English, this phrase basically means that you have been on dates with someone but are not yet official. It is also common in English to say 'dating' which again does not mean that you are in a relationship. For example, 'I am currently dating someone.'

  • I've been on a few dates with him/her but we are not dating yet.

1) I'm seeing someone but we are not official yet.
(デートしてる人はいるけどまだ付き合ってはいない)
I'm seeing someone というのは、気になる人または何度かデートしている人がいる、という意味です。official は「正式」という意味ですが恋愛関係にては正式に付き合っている事を意味しますので、we are not official yet というのは「まだ正式に付き合ってはいない」ということになります。

2) I've been on a few dates with him/her but we are not dating yet.
(何度か彼/彼女とデートしたけどまだ付き合ってはいない)
I've been on a few dates =「何回かデートに行った」
英語で dating というと「デートしてる」という意味ですが、どちらかといえば「付き合っている」というニュアンスです。We are dating というと「私たちは付き合っています」という意味ですので、正式にお付き合いしている場合に使う単語です。

  • We are seeing each other but we're not going to tell anyone yet.

Both answers show that your dating or seeing each other but that your not ready to make it public knowledge and it would indicate to that person that you wouldn't want them to go round telling others.

  • We are only seeing each other right now

  • We are just hanging out.

  • I have not asked him/her to be my girlfriend/boyfriend yet.

Commonly referred to as seeing someone or we are still just close friends right now. I have not asked them "out" yet. even though you have been out together on dates, it is common to say I have not asked them "out" yet. the act of asking them to be with you.

  • We have been out together a few times, so we'll see what happens, but it's early days yet.

  • I wouldn't say we are dating yet, but we have been out together a few times.

    play icon

  • We are enjoying seeing each other, but we both want to keep our options open.

    play icon

The first phrase uses very casual wording, such as "been out" and "few times", and the last part of the sentence starts with the word "but", which sounds a note of caution.
The second phrase is a bit more open, and uses the term "dating yet", which could sound like the person hopes that dating officially is the next step.
The third phrase sounds as if the 2 people involved are happy to see each other on a casual basis, as they both want to keep their options open, ie not commit.

  • We have been seeing each other for a while.

  • It is early days, we are just seeing each other at the minute.

  • We have been on a few dates, but nothing official yet.

I hope it is all going well with you two, and good luck for the future. And, if anyone is interested in your love life but nothing is too serious just yet, then you can say one of these three sentences and it will clear everything up for you.

I hope the next date goes well.

Try one out, see how it goes, and find the one that suits you.

I hope that helps.
Have a great day.

  • I'm dating someone at the moment but we are not a couple.

In this situation it is the "going on dates phase", where you are seeing someone that you like/are interested in, you are spending a lot of time together and communicating with that person often, to see if that person will be a suitable partner/boyfriend/girlfriend for you.

  • We have been seeing each other, but it is not something official.

    play icon

  • I have been casually dating him/her.

    play icon

  • We are keeping our options open whilst seeing each other.

    play icon

All of these statements are correct and they all indicate that you are not dating a certain person officially yet. The first two sentences both indicate that you are not seeing each other officially yet, but that in the near future you might get "serious" and start officially dating the other person.
The last one ("We are keeping our options open whilst seeing each other") suggests that you are just seeing each other and that you are not looking to officially date the other person, because you are looking at other potential partners as well.

  • We are not officially dating.

-We have been on a few dates, but we are not boyfriend-and-girlfriend.
to be 'boyfriend-and-girlfriend' with a person means to be dating them. You use this expression as an adjective.

-We are not officially dating.
to be 'officially dating' someone means to call each other 'boyfriend/girlfriend'

  • I really like him but we're not going public right now

  • Mum's the word. We like each other but aren't ready to share it with friends yet

    play icon

'To like each other' is a euphemism for 'really like each other' - as in a romantic relationship - in the UK. If you say, 'I think they like each other' then it means the couple in question are showing all positive indications of progressing a romantic relationship.
'Mum's the word' means that you should not tell anyone else this information.

  • Someone I've been seeing but not officially.

  • Someone I've been talking to but not officially.

Within these two sentences you can see that the sentences are almost identical; however, we can either use the verbs, "to see," and, "to talk to," to describe that we've been going on dates with someone. Finally when adding, "but not officially," really emphasizes that you aren't in a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship just yet.
