While the term has several meanings, the most frequent usage refers to two or more people exploring whether they are romantically or sexually compatible by participating in dates with the other.
When you hear a song you think a guy would like, send it to him on Spotify. Next time you're buying concert tickets for a band you love, buy two—and don't immediately decide who gets to be your plus-one. The key is getting the guy out of a familiar context. That's what happened to one guy Massa interviewed who met his now-fiancé on a volleyball team.
Also, when you two have a fight they'll be the first ones to put the dagger through his heart because they automatically don't like him (there are exceptions to this, but that's how it usually is).
It's not like he's going to stay friends with them after you break up.

Make yourself available to who you might meet and where the evening could take you."The more you're open to letting guys show you all the different sides of themselves, the more likely you'll surprise yourself and fall in love with one of them," Massa explains. Finally, you and The Prospective Boyfriend are doing something romantic that could lead to something serious.
And we all know that women are backstabbers, so of course they're going to say they don't like him when they're really just jealous.
