If a guy is willing to spend time just chilling alone with a girl he hasn't known for a long time, is he ever just being friendly or nice? (Regardless of who initiated plans)
Most Helpful Guy
It's the same way you become friends with anyone, whether they're a guy or a girl.
The only difference is that when it's a guy and girl, there's often (not always but often) the potential to become more than friends. And depending upon the situation, sometimes that's obvious from the get-go. Sometimes it isn't.
But we don't live in medieval ages, where the thought of a guy and girl alone together is something scandalous. So whether you two are alone or in a group has nothing to do with whether it's platonic or not.
Not that you should be ignorant of circumstances. If he just met you a day ago, and he's asking you to have dinner with him, that sure sounds like a date. And as a rule of thumb, single guys are on the look-out for girls they're interested in. But you can't make a blanket statement about all scenarios, or assume that sex is all that's on the guy's mind.0
