Date vs Hanging out. What are their differences?

I went out with a woman. I have asked her out, without making clear that I like her. I just wanted to know her better. We haven't met, so i thought that she wasn't interested. However, she sent me a message mentioning that she hadn't forgotten her promise.
I am 23, she is 31
We were alone, we spent 4 hours together. I paid the check. I pick her up and drove her home
There was no physical contact, except some sort of touching from both. No kissing.
What do you think? Was it a date?

  • Hanging out -We are going out to see if we could be compatible as friends. Or we are already friends and we enjoy going out with each other and having fun.
    Dating - We are going out as people who are trying to get to know each other to check if there is an erotic spark between us.

    • how can i understand her intentions?
