In my opinion, "hanging out" means exactly that -- hang out with a person platonically.
My question is what is the difference between dating and hanging out? (movie, dinner, dancing) as a "couple" Hanging out ...... It is "hanging out" that you hope turns into something more meaningful and long-term, which is the "Friends" part.
I have always thought that no matter what the situation is when two people get together even to meet up someplace or be picked up and go somewhere thats considered a date. Means she brings her car you bring your's she sees good looking guy she wants to know, she's gone .... A lot of people also put hanging out when they are looking to meet "Friends" but would also be into the possibility of it turning into something even more serious -- "Long-term"No one has yet stated anything that makes the 2 terms different.
Especially if its a guy and gal going to dinner and a movie, or just to go have coffee or ice cream, its still a date. Dating - 1) activity of going on dates: the activity of going out regularly with somebody as a social or romantic partner.
However how did dating get replaced with hanging out? Hang out - 1) spend time somewhere: to spend time somewhere in a casual or relaxed way (informal).
2) associate: to spend time regularly with somebody. I just figured hanging out is what i do with my friends.......
or 1) place frequently visited by somebody: a place frequented by a particular person or group of people, especially for relaxation. Hang out just remains pretty much the same according to the their true meaning from the dictionary. From those that have posted hanging out is still a date. & if i am meeting a guy somewhere that would be a date.I thought Hang out meant going out with your mates, having a laugh but nothing more. spending time together with the implicit intention of discovering whether the relationship has the potential to be a romantic/physical/close one, or under the working assumption that the relationship is heading/nearly/already therehanging out:- spending time together with the explicit intention of not assuming anything about where the relationship might go, i.e.On here Hang out is considered by some as meaning will you hang out with me? don't assume there is any ulterior goal on the part of your partner.Meaning this is asking for a one to one relationship, which may be interpreted by some as not entirely unsexual So a girls gotta look after herself and unfortunately ticked that box too. If you discover you are inclined towards changing from hanging out to dating, or vice versa, that's another kettle of fish!"hang out" is a term used as "dating" put's pressure on the other person, however if your just hanging out you get to know the REAL person and not some shitty game face that will evaporate after you know eachother awhile. You can hang out with anyone, and it assumes some mutual interest other than romance and or sex.The dating frame sucks, it puts the man in a position of weakness. Dating implies something a bit more intense on the romance/sex meter.
