Have been talking with this guy for more than half a year and we"hung out" some times before. Recently he messaged me saying he would take me out on a "date".
How a "date" can be different from "hang out" ?
Honestly, I prefer using "hang out" for two reasons.
1.if I'm interested in him, it is kinda risk free and I could always find excuse to see him more frequently. (Usually we are friends)
2.if I'm not sure about my feelings, saying "hang out"is pressure free, as I could easily refuse to meet him again without feeling guilty
