I was talking to a friend of mine today and she was telling me that she was out with this guy the other night, and at the end of the night he told her that he was happy to be on a date. Then she tells me that she thought she was just out with a friend. I said well he did ask you out, you said yes, and he paid for everything. Sounds like a date to me.. right? The deal is this isn't the first time I have heard stories like this. So how is a guy to know if he's on a date or out with a friend?
