and he is the one who asked you to go out.

It could be either. It depends on the pretense0

I wouldn't consider it a date unless the guy actually asked me out and made it obvious to me that it was a date. If I'm just hanging out with a friend and he offers to pay, it's still just two friends hanging out. Him offering to pay doesn't suddenly make it a date in my opinion.0
