Difference Between "Hanging Out" And A "Date"?

Mon Mar 06, 2006 11:52 pm

Hey I was wondering how you guys view the difference between going on a date with someone vs just hanging out with them? Personally I have always thought if one person pays then its a date, if each person individually pays then its hanging out. On Fri night I was out with this girl (our parents have been friends forever and they kind of introduced us) and her and I talked during the week and decided to go out on Fri night. So we went to see a movie and had some drinks afterwards. It was weird that she offered to pay for both the movie tickets, but I said "No way, I am paying for these." We seem to get along really well and the conversation is really interesting. For next weekend we are trying to get some of our friends together to go out in a larger group. So another question.....

How do I tell if she is interested in me as a possible boyfriend, or if she is just being nice because our parents are friends?

Thanks for any input

Ask her if she takes it up the Gary Glitter, if she says no, she just wants to be friends!  rotfl

Just go casual, the 'see how it goes' scenario - Just be friends - you will know if she is interested in time, don't push things - just go with the flow.
If it is meant to be it will happen - enjoy the friendship, that is the most important part of the relationship at the beginning, girls appreciate that.

Good luck

Hanging out is a no pressure situation.

A date is pulling whatever dirty trick, and telling whatever nasty lie that you have to in order to get into her pants.

In the interest of aviation security, all travelers... Err, wait. In the interest of keeping the Hollywood industry spirit alive, I'll answer your question in the form of a movie quote:

"No one can be told what the difference is. You have to see it for yourself."

You don't. There is no way to tell from your current data.

If you want to know, there are two ways you could find out. You could use the really common-sense and hence bound to fail method of calling her up, talking to her and asking something along the lines of: "Say, I was wondering, are you interested in me as a possible boyfriend, or are you just being sociable because our parents are friends?"

Since that wouldn't work, you might want to just call her up and see if she wants to (go and/or hang) out again. If she doesn't, there you go. If she does, you should soon find out the answer to your question...

Thanks for the info. I guess I'll just give this time and see where it goes. One more question. When we go out again, lets say to either see a movie or do something like bowling, if she offers to pay again, should I let her pay, or should I insist again and pay?
Thanks

Apparently if you can stick your thumb up her ass while dancing, then she wants to sleep with you....

Ask her if she feels more comfortable going 'Dutch' ie, both pay, that way you compromise - if you insist on paying she should be flattered !!

This is by far the best piece of advice anyone could give you. So go with it!

Does she have a job ??? If she does, then you can do that.
I personally would never let a female pay for me unless she twists my arm, and most chicks don't do that!! (yea, that's why i'm broke!!)

You can also try what ABfemme said about going "Dutch"!

Good Luck and don't do anything stupid!
