Stephen: well thankfully you have me as a friend because i know all about dates. a date is simply when a girl and boy hang out, and they both have interest in each other.
Lauren: Not true. A real "date" (that you call a date) only happens when a guy asks a girl out to hang out and you don't really know each other as friends first (ie: attraction first, friendship follows). Or a date can also be when you spend time together after officially stating you are in a dating relationship.
Jesse: An edible sweet fruit cultivated from the palm tree Phoenix dactylifera.
Bill: ............ marriage....... JK JK!!!!
Lauren: Hanging out with someone you may like is not considered an official date...you don't call it that...it's just called hanging out.
Corinne: good question.
Whitney: i personally always thought it was a date ONLY if they asked you out to dinner or somewhere fun, but definitely dinner... i think? actualy i probabl wouldt know if it was a date unless the guy said "do you wanna go out with me tonight, (ths weekend, whatever)" oh and it has to be a one on one thing!
Whitney: that was a dumb ending to my statement lol
James: A specific day of a calendar year... oh what, nevermind.
Daniel: haha Whitney knows my answer. lol!!
Jaime: if he pays, it's a date. you go dutch, not a date. hehe.
Whitney: porn-like movies and chic-fi-la! hahahah i think? or is it my favorite?
Whitney: ohhh yeah ok im going with what you said Jaime! so trueee
Lauren: How about...if you expect him to pay..it's a date.
Rebekah: I heard the best definition of "dating" on Family Life Today. "Dating" is practice for divorce. And being older and wiser I have to agree - skip dating, it's an unreality.
Daniel: whitney...that wasnt a date. that was you and me skipping class and chillin. and even though i paid that doesnt make it a date. i never let the lady pay. you know what my idea of a date is though.
Megan: I'm pretty sure that a date is only a date if it has been clarified as such. Otherwise one or both parties could see it as something else and be conned into it.
Daniel 2: hanging out is not a date.
Sarah: a one-on-one time which is spent with someone else... usually resulting the dude buying, specific questions asked, and also usually results in a little somethin/somethin ;)...
Daniel 2: i think asking someone for dinner or a movie is a date. you dont have to pay sometimes either. you also dont have to be interested in one another.
Geoffrey: I think Megan's got it right, both people need to be on the same page. Friends can go out to dinner/coffee or something and have it just be that. I do think it's more likely to be construed as a date if you go to dinner with someone you aren't really close friends with yet, though.
Jonathan: whoa. twenty some comments. good job. I think a date suggests some sort of interest in a relationship, ora one night stand. Unless done as a prank or bet.
Charlie: "Big raisins that make you poop"
