We're told she's also been setting him up by buying him various gifts.
It can be a form of courtship that consists of social activities done by the couple.
Dating as an institution is a relatively recent phenomenon which has mainly emerged in the last few centuries.

At the same time, the story of Dee and Gypsy is so unbelievable, and the lies are so complex and layered, it’s difficult to entirely process their story after just one viewing. Gypsy’s mom had her daughter on Xanax at the time she was murdered. Gypsy and Dee’s joint Facebook account is still alive, though it is now a memorial page. At age 1, Gypsy knew what her “cranial” and “phalanges” were, and she could point to them. This is exactly what she would say when her mother was upset with her, meaning that she still retains this behavior. According to Gypsy, her mother’s last words (hours before her murder) were: “Don’t hurt me.” 11.
According to Gypsy, that’s why she felt nothing when her mother was being stabbed by boyfriend Nicholas Godejohn. Gypsy and Nicholas were alert to the fact that they needed to get rid of the murder weapon after Dee Dee was murdered. She appeared to be incredibly intelligent at such a young age. Gypsy was taught to manually move her legs, which we see in the clip Dee Dee filmed of her daughter falling in the snow. Dee Dee kept her own “medical record” of Gypsy’s diagnosis. Instead, she used an entire closet to house all of Gypsy’s medication. Gypsy was able to set up a secret Facebook account and a profile on a Christian dating website. Gypsy had thousands of dollars in her possession when she ran away with Nicholas.
