that you want to hang out and go on a date.
Unbeknown to me when you ask a girl to hang out she automatically think its a date. I did not know that at all.
So how do you let a girl know that you want to hang out and become friends but do not want to go out and become a couple.

Well, it's like this: If you ask a girl to hang out, and she wants to be friends, then that's what will happen. If you ask a girl to hang out and she wants it to be a date, then that's what it is. If you ask a girl to hang out and she thinks you're asking her on a date, but she doesn't like you that way, well, then she's gonna say no... etc.
It's all up to the girl. The only way around this is YOU have to be explicit in your invitation to hang out. If you want it to be a date, say so. At the very least, you have to say, "hey, how about just you and me go to the movies on Saturday" or "will you be my date to the dance." If you want to be friends, say "a bunch of us are going to the lake tonight, you wanna come?"
That's all the control you have. If you don't make it clear to her what you want, she will make the decision for you.1
