I am studying at uni, and my class is mostly guys (there's only two other girls). One of the guys I kind of know, but don't really talk to outside of class, has asked me to see a movie with him. I thought "Yeah, I could see a movie" so I said yes.
Then it occurred to me that this could be a date. I don't want to date at the moment, so I'm a little worried he might think I am interested in him. He's a decent guy as far as I know and because I haven't dated before, I don't know how to tell him that I'm not interested in him (if this is indeed a date). I don't mind seeing a movie with him, but I have no idea what to expect if this turns out to be a "first date" either...
In response to a comment -- hahaha, yes I am often quite daft!

Of course it's a date!
You stop him before the date is supposed to happen (in person) and say "Hey, I was a little taken off guard when you asked me to the movie, so I didn't have time to express myself. I just wanted you to know that I want to go to the movies with you, but purely as a friend. If you intended this to be a date, I'll understand if you want to cancel. Otherwise, I'll look forward to going with you"1
