Are these dates?

So over the break, i started hanging out with this guy from my English class (we hadn't spoken before this). We've hung out 3 times and each time he always pays for everything, picks me up and drops me home. I really like him and i'm pretty sure he likes me too. I just want to know, are these dates? Or are we just friends? Because he asked me if a guy could take me on a date anywhere, where would i go, and i said the zoo. And the second time we hung out he took me to the zoo. So are these dates? because we're going out again Sunday
