What does 'hanging out' mean?

In regards to defining a relationship, what does it mean when someone says "we're hanging out" ?

Does this mean just friends? Because that's what I would take it as but why not just say "we're just friends" ?


Have an opinion?

  • It's a non-committal way of saying "we're seeing eachother to see where it might lead but I don't want to put a label on because I don't want to put any pressure on the situation. Let's just see where it goes".

    • This has to be the best answer.. Thanks because i was wondering the same thing as her

  • Yes you're just hanging out as friends, unless the other person has hinted at having feelings for you. But it's still not a date unless he asks you out.
    Now answer my question please!

    • So do you say im asking you out as a date? How do you phrase that? I've always wondered this
