So without telling either party, how did YOU know it is a date or just an outing? If you were confused, but too shy to ask. Any pointers?

Pretty much, most of the time if it's a one-on-one hangout between a guy and a girl it's a date. It can be useful to clarify though. If you're the one being asked out, ask, "What, like, as a date?", and if you're the one asking the other person out, and they say yes, say something like "Okay, it's a date!" or refer to it as a date later in the conversation or something.2
