People nowadays use the term "hanging out " or "kicking it", instead of the word "date"...when spending time with a person of interest that isn't a monogamous partner (aka when casually dating).
I dont blame them; for some reason the word "date" in the casual dating phase, is a forbidden word that SOMEHOW (supposedly) strikes fear in people and makes some people lose interest.
Funny how the word "date" has so much negative powers nowadays!
Why do u think that is?
Use examples of yourself or others, if u so choose, so we can understand your viewpoint.

I don't know! It's frustrating haha. More than once, a guy has asked me "hey do you wanna hang out" and I was like "Sure!" and I had no idea they meant a date. I wish people would make their intentions clear because I don't like guessing.0
