"How else are you going to get things moving?", that's exactly my thinking haha. It's just guys can be weird about stuff like that and it got me thinking. Hence, the question. But it's what you say. They'll only see it as a bad thing when not interested. Thanks for the advice!
Not flirty, friendly. And it's with friends we have in common
Then you should be fine, just keep boundaries clear at first and it won't get weird. He'll find his place in the social order pretty quickly.

Meaning he might think I'm friend zoning him? Why?
Becausr you invited him to do the same things you invited your friends to!. What would make that more sexual or romantic? Nothing. It's so platonic it could be detrimental to the possibility of any relationship.
Let's say a girl you like invites you to do something... How will you know if she's friend zoning you or not if you don't go and see what kind of dynamic there is between the two of you? It's a great way of getting to know each other. Why should all the dating dynamic fall on the shoulders of the guy? Ps. When I said 'join me and my friends', I'm not talking my girl friends (just saying).
I'm just asking out of curiosity by the way... Not attacking you or anything 😂
You're missing the point. When showing interest, you could be showing interest in different things. When you want to show someone you're interested in being friends and then go out to dinner just the two of you what do you think the contradictions are?
