When it's a date, the expectations are clear. When it's just "hanging out," then expectations are not clear and the two people may very well have totally different ideas about what's happening.
This is why I never liked when a guy invited me over to just "hang out." I never know what that means and I like to know what I'm agreeing to here.0

Date you are actively trying to get to know the person to assess if there is a match. Hanging out you're just chilling you know, with whoever, and if they have to go or whatever then yeah, casual.0
