paid the dinner... tickets to concert... those kinds of things.
Most Helpful Guy
I'm still confused about it because a lot of people view this in many different ways.
Lets say that a guy picks you up and you go an outdoor festival followed with a walk in the park where you get to know each other better. Is it not a date because you basically spent nothing?
I like to try new things every now and then, and some of the activities that I try just happen to be free at times (and lets be honest, the whole movies and restaurant thing gets boring after a while so I like to spice things up a lil).
I think that, the most important thing is how the two people involved see it. If you both think its a date then it doesn't matter who pays or if it didn't cost you a thing.1
