So I started hanging out with this girl I met at work and I'm curious... is it considered just hanging out at this point? Or can it be legitimately considered dating/seeing someone? We've hung out (outside of work) once and are making plans to do it again in the near future. We both seem to enjoy each other's company and while I am hesitant to tell anyone who asks that I'm "seeing someone" it would be nice to know whether I can/should refer to this as the beginning of something or if I should just watch and wait a little longer.

Dating is established, but not committed. Both of you openly knowingly agree to go out as a couple for the purposes of testing your romantic compatibility. When you are still in the "dating" phase, you don't yet have a commitment, or a relationship defined by a label. You can still see other people while you are dating, and it's socially acceptable, and neither of you can get upset if the other is doing so.
To answer your question, no, you're not "dating" because she has not admitted any feelings, nor expressed any desire to seek a relationship with you. You can legitimately say that you are pursuing someone, because you are seeking romantic relations with this girl. You need to talk to her, and tell her how you feel so that you can find out if she's interested.0
