Are we dating or just friends hanging out

I think romance and sex is obviously one distinction to make (other than friends with benefits, have literally no clue what the difference is between that and dating is? I hope this doesn't come across as weird/cringey, or even the right place to ask for that matter.— i Wolf_He's not an idiot. But then, how can you tell if you're just friends being friends, or friends working your way toward a relationship?! The sweet people of Reddit had some solid words of wisdom for our boy @i Wolf_: Hanging out is the very beginning stages of some modern romances.

I think it's well rounded," Thomas, 25, says."I love when a girl suggests something out-of-the-box that I'd never come up with myself.

Something like a wine-and-painting class, where you bring your own wine and paint.

If we make plans to get together, it's a date to me — no matter how big or small."Though only 22 percent of the singles surveyed feel like "if I'm asked, then it's date," it seems that guys feel like spending time one-on-one with you is a date. "God," Anthony 33, says right off the bat, "I f*cking hate that term. "I've met girls that want to 'hang out,' and typically, they're the type that are the non-committables.

They want to 'hang' and make out and maybe occasionally have sex, but they don't want the title or the blame when they f*ck it up. It's the most frustrating blurred line ever.""I'm not into 'hanging out,' " says Jason, 28, "but I feel like it's become a casual type of date. Let's not take this too seriously, or too fast, but let's get together and do something fun and not too personal, like go bowling.' That to me is hanging out.""I dread this kind of text or message from a girl I'm interested in," says Owen, 26.

You're on there for dating or hooking up, and although I've heard of a few cases where people end up making friends on there, you're almost certainly going on a date.

But there are other ways to meet people that aren't so transparent.

"You can grab coffee whenever and you nearly always head somewhere else after having drinks.

The 'In-betweeners' are prime 'hang out' times."So, what makes a great date? It's a full meal, you can have drinks, you're sitting, really getting to know someone, it can be as intimate or as laidback as you like," says Micah, 29."Dinner somewhere, dessert somewhere else, and a movie.

Nearly all of them said, "coffee and drinks," because the timing is off and it leaves too much pressure on the what-comes-after decision.
