So I'm starting to hang out with a guy I used to talk to (we stopped for a while) but now that he's single he's started contacting me again. We've hung out twice and both times he's been flirty and cuddly but I've had to pay my half of the movie/dinner/event/whatever. Now, I'm totally fine with going Dutch occasionally if a guys hurting for money or just to treat them every now and then or if we're just friends...but it's confusing now because he acts very flirty and cute and touchy-feeley (not in a grope-y way but in a "lets-cuddle-during-the-movie way). I don't know if he's feeling me out for dating potential and just letting me pay until then or just wants a cuddle buddy or is just cheap. Anyway...if you text someone all day every day and flirt and hang out and snuggle...but the girl pays...is it a date?

I think it's a hangout.
Immature guys tend to do this. I had a guy friend like this, we would always hang out, he would come to my area, I would go to his, we would see movies, eat together, etc.
He did hold my hand and stuff but we never hooked up.
One time he did take me on a date and paid for me and it was expensive and all. but most times we just did casual things and paid ourselves.
It turns out he did like me but I wasn't really interested. If I was and had showed more interest we probably would have progressed or at least I would have found out his intentions.
I used to be less confident, this was a few years ago. I don't think I'd get into this situation again.0
