All I hear about is 'hanging out'. What's the difference between that and a date? Do people even go on dates anymore? (I mean single people just getting to know each other, NOT boyfriend/girlfriend or married ppl)
i don't know if I've even been on a 'date' before! I don't have a boyfriend, never have :( but I've had guys suggest that we 'hang out' and I've suggested it before too. but even when I talk to the guys who suggest we hang out sometimes and ask 'when are we hanging out?' or w/e, they just say whenever. if I follow up that question by asking what we should do, they just say 'idk'.
what am I supposed to know from that?! I've played along with this before and picked somewhere to go eat or w/e and we both went but how the heck am I supposed to know if their lack of interest /initiative(cant think of a better word) in planning hangout/date/whatever it is means that a)they just said we should hang out to because they felt sorry for me looking like a pathetic loser b)just want to be friends c)may very well like me but are just lazy?!
i'm incredibly shy and it takes all the courage I have to even hold a coherent conversation with these guys much less ask how he feels! guys, can you help? what's the difference between a date and hanging out and have I been making a total jackass out of myself all this time? :(

i think dating is like you both are looking for something in each other and hanging out is like a no pressure I don't need to impress you type of thing..i think.. and so wen someone ask you out they gotta be careful with their words..we should hang out could means lets hang out as friends rather than lets go out..could mean other..but that's the way I view it1
