Dates establish healthy boundaries.
Sharing your dating trials with the men in your life can really help a brother out. Sure it does.
But if a date is exactly what you want, don't be afraid to ask for it. Dates establish healthy boundaries. It could also mean that what he really wants is a long-term FWB, or even a one-night stand. So why not try skipping the hangout thing and opt for the good old-fashioned first date?
The dumb mistakes i used to make with first dates
Not to mention that other people might find out that you went out together and start asking lo of questions. People will see you together on what looks like a date!
A date means you never have to wonder if he is looking for an emotional girlfriend or a real girlfriend. A date, on the other hand, especially a first date, typically happens outside of the home at a particular time that has a natural end to it.
On a date you have to plan ahead, even to the point you have to put something on the calendar. As a man, there is something admittedly appealing about the hangout session.

We all know that dating today looks a lot less like dating and a lot more like hanging out. Despite the relatable discomfort about the pressure of a date, most of the men I talked to agreed that asking a woman on a date is typically the surest way to a real, healthy relationship.
It can be a rather daunting task to keep up a conversation over the course of a date that might last up to two hours or more. Dinner ends after dessert.
Gentlemen speak: 3 reasons you should go on a date instead of ‘hanging out’
Follow these steps to keep the end of your date free from awkward moments. In my same casual male friend poll, I learned that, for the most part, there are plenty of guys who agree with me. So a man wants to hang out. But I do think there is something about what the word represents, which is an intentional one-on-one time together with romance in mind.
It sets up clear expectations. It keeps the relationship intentional. Home Relationships.

Rather than planning a time and place to have quality time and get to know one another, we settle in on the couch for some ambiguous romantic tension and the possibility of one thing leading to the next. I think you can find out whether or not you would be interested in a relationship relatively quickly without the weird pressures that official dates tend to come with. I am so awkward on dates.
