I am just confused on a few things. Is asking a girl "Will you be my girlfriend?" the same as "Will you go out with me?" Or do you ask a girl to be your girlfriend after a few dates that went well?
Secondly, the term "dating." When two people go out on one date are they considered "dating?"
Can someone simply all these things for me? I would really appreciate it.

I think it depends on age. I remember when I was in High School I would hear things like "My boyfriend is taking me out on my first date tonight." Which is how you did things at that age, you didn't really take the time to get to know people before being like "OMG he's totally my BF"
I think once you get older and more mature you have a dating stage which is just that, it's going on a date with someone that you may or may not see relationship potential with. I don't think an adult should ask someone "should you go out with me" in an attempt to get them to be their girl friend, to me it just sounds rather immature. I think a more adult way of asking would be like "So we've gone on x amount of dates and I really like spending time with you, in fact I don't really have any intest in going out with other girls. How would you feel about being exclusive?"1
