What’s the difference between a date and a hangout? Do you think this is a date?

Anonymous
Girl told her guy friend (of 1 year) that she liked him, and he didn’t say whether or not he felt the same way, but told her that he has always wanted to hangout with her more and would love to see her soon. The girl is going to visit him (he lives 4 hours from her) and he told her that he’ll take her to the beach, visit a lighthouse, go out to eat, and explore the town. He also asked her if she wanted to stay the night (at a hotel), just in case she’s too tired to drive back home afterwards. So, do you think that’s a date?

*They go to the same college. They’re just in different states right now because it’s summer*

They have been talking to each other for 3 months now, and nothing sexual has been brought up.

Even if the girl decides to stay at the hotel, he won’t be staying with her. It’s just for her to get enough rest to drive back home.
