So I have never been on a date or what not, so naturally I'm a bit uh inexperienced when it comes to these things.
I got a message from a facebook friend saying... "Hey! Are you going to be around Friday or this weekend? I'd love to introduce you to a friend of mine! No worries if you're not free though."
I didn't really think about it at this point, and said sure. I then half jokingly asked her if her friend needed music help (I know my facebook friend via music stuff mostly). She said more or less "Both of you just play cool musical instruments and I think you'd get along well!" Then she set a time and asked me if a local cafe in the area worked.
Did I... Did I just inadvertently get set up on a blind date? Or is this just like a "I think you two would be great friends so I'm introducing you" kind of thing?
I'm a bit confused and some help would be appreciated.
Yes, you just got set up for a date.

No, she just thinks the two of us could be good friends.
Sounds like a date to me. Have fun, honey. If you don't work out romantically, maybe you can be good friends. Just enjoy whatever it turns out to be. In all likelihood, you're just going to hang out with someone with similar interests. Who doesn't love that?
You might want to ask her in a discreet way, like who's going to be there with you and whether he's single, etc. From what you described, it could be friends or a date, but it seems more like she wants you to be friends bc you have some stuff in common, and if it proceeds from there, great :)
When you go, don't show up fancy like it's a date, but be dressed well enough that it would be acceptable if it turns out to be one. The best thing to do is just to ask her what she was thinking of by introducing you, for you two to date or just meet.
Uh! Sounds like a date to me. Kinda sounds like your friend is trying to hook you and this chick up. Your friend used a common interest that the two of you shared and hoped that the pieces would fall in the right places (they totally did). Not to mention the set time and place which took no time at all to coordinate and put together. There is some SERIOUS magic brewing here. I've never been on a blind date but, I'm sure it won't be terrible. Your friend had good intentions when she/he figured you two would get along just fine. Who knows... She might be a hottie that plays the ukulele. You never know what you may get into unless you find out. I say. Look your best (maybe a nice t-shirt and jeans) and be yourself. Relax! Chill! And remember... It'll only go as far as you want it to. I. e. second date or never see eachother again. Whatever! Let me know how it goes too :)
