So over the break, i started hanging out with this guy from my English class (we hadn't spoken before this). We've hung out 3 times and each time he always pays for everything, picks me up and drops me home. I really like him and i'm pretty sure he likes me too. I just want to know, are these dates? Or are we just friends? Because he asked me if a guy could take me on a date anywhere, where would i go, and i said the zoo. And the second time we hung out he took me to the zoo. So are these dates? because we're going out again Sunday
He probably considers them dates. If it's not what you want, talk to him about it and make sure you are both on the same page so there's no confusions or misunderstandings. And the sooner the better as you've already been on several dates.
