The difference is a "man" would actually have the confidence to ask you on a "date" instead of being ambiguous thus leaving you confused and unsure of your position.
You dont want to do the dirty
when you are hanging out , On dates your hormones may be raging
Did he pay for your dinner? Other than that, sounds like you two are dating! Or at least, he thinks so!
That's a date. You might not be bf and gf, but you are dating.
What does the guy think of it? Does he think it was a date or hanging out? The guys always have the upper hand it seems. They seem to decide the difference between date and hanging out, lol. Just ask him straight out so you can get an answer right away so you don't have to wonder for hours or days.
hanging out is going out with no pressures and labels
dating is something more serious
That's starting to sound very much like a date. If it was one no one then even more like a date. If it was just a quick kiss on the cheek and little hug, then it could be hanging out, although it is sounding very much like a date.
How did you cross the line?
Hanging out is what your girlfriend tells you she was doing with another guy. To the other guy, it was a date.
I'm confused too :O
