I know it's impossible to eliminate the fact that people enter potentially-romantic situations with different sets of expectations and anxieties.
But still — maybe, maaaaaybe, if we were to speak about dating less in terms of some old-timey ritual originally meant as spouse auditions and more in terms of enjoying ourselves, then the confusion would be less worrisome (at the very least, it would be less boring for all involved).I'm a lil confused there's this girl i like..she knows i like her but she said we have to hang out more and get to know each other. so if ever i ask her to go to the movies or something, would that be a date or hang out? I'm a lil confused there's this girl i like..she knows i like her but she said we have to hang out more and get to know each other. so if ever i ask her to go to the movies or something, would that be a date or hang out?also, what's the difference between what people DO on a date and what people do when they hang out?, 69 percent of 18 - 54-year-olds surveyed online are "at least somewhat confused" about whether any given outing with a potential romantic partner is a date or not. With that said, though, that indefinable demarcation does showcase a very particular logical assumption — namely that "hanging out," is idle time, time spent for the sake of spending it; no pressure, whatever, whereas "dating" is serious business.
What a dark and terrifying world of chaos we all dwell in., "A date is someone personally asking you out — that sometimes can get confused with a one-on-one hangout, depending on the way they mention it or which medium they use to ask you or if it happens to be a group hangout." Ugh, sounds confusing. Dating, in this understanding, is teleological — you go out to a series of dinners with a person so that you'll eventually, possibly, become Something More — and sometimes transactional.
I mean, it's fairly obvious that the difference between "dating" and "hanging out" is an arbitrary semantic boundary that not even the wisest and most experienced among us can parse.
(The transactional nature of the date event is most blatantly shown in the assumption that the man should pay — a sentiment 69 percent of men and 55 women surveyed agreed with.) To continue laboring under this logic: hanging out is enjoying someone's company, possibly flirtatiously, in a way that may shade into something romantic or sexual but doesn't necessarily have to. It's like a relationship internship: you're not getting anything out of it yet, but you should be on your best behavior because there's a chance it could lead to...
do you act like boyfriends/grilfriends when you date? dating is just if you like her a lot but i didn't mean about love relationships but dating are like going out for dinner....sitting down and relax and wait for the food....they start talking about something sweet for their date....hangout is different because hangouts are also the same as date but hanging out is a friendship hangout....everywhere for people to go out with....the question that you posted right there if you wanted her to go out for some movies it could be a date...unless your getting closer but i guess its a friendship date.....because your going to watch some movies...first is that you need to get along with her before falling in love...soon you'll win her heart..dates are kinda good for guys to discover..makes your date girl happy, then she'll tell you..you like to go again for dinner...thats a great question from a female....hopefully you'll love her....luck...^_^ I'm a lil confused there's this girl i like..
