Is hanging out and dating the same thing
The problem usually isn’t that people don’t know whether or not they want to date, it’s that they’re afraid the other person doesn’t feel the same way. Overcoming this fear involves two steps: First John says that “perfect love drives out fear.” While it’s normal to be nervous when you ask someone out, God’s perfect love should cast out all fear that you’re unlovable, unworthy, and destined to be alone.
This kind of fearful hemming and hawing isn’t how Christians should do things. I’m not saying that in deference to antiquated courtship rituals. You’re exploring the possibility of a relationship with one person.
It has all the qualifiers as a date, but without the expectations.
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.......
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!
