After googling the word ‘pinnings’ I found its definition on good old Word Web online. Apparently pinning is a mutual promise of a couple not to date anyone else; on college campuses it was once signaled by the giving of a fraternity pin.
So in modern terms it would be the decision to be exclusive in a relationship or maybe an engagement? Hmmm, I like this concept. Too often people are kind of in a relationship, but also not in a relationship at the same time. If a guy hasn’t asked a lady to be exclusive then technically she can date other guys right? This also applies to the guys. And as much as we think it is, exclusivity is not always automatic. I guess this pinning concept makes sure that both people in this relationship know its real and mutually agree to only date each other. So essentially all the other men and women who were waiting on the sidelines can sway 🙂
