What exactly is this considered as?

Question Posted Wednesday January 24 2007, 11:33 pm


When a guy asks you to see a movie, does that necessarily mean it is a date? What if he is bringing one of his friends but doesn't care if you bring someone?

I suppose I am going to get different answers, but I'm sure there must be a way to figure it out.

Thanks! =)

Hm, this is a toughie.

These kinda actions are one of those "it could mean either or" kinds of things.

Whenever a guy and girl usually go see a movie together and there's flirting and such involved ( maybe he even pays? ) that would be considered a date.

Even though if you typically invite other people along, it wouldn't be much of a date anymore. But guys always do the "wingman" thing. They invite a pal along to make them less nervous and to try and make conversation if there's the chance he's lacking in it. The wingman just makes the whole night a little less stressful, because he could be very nervous.

It would really depend on how the date went/goes. If he flirted/flirts with you and you flirt back and he might even offer to pay for your food or your ticket and he's being a gentleman and making conversation and showing interest, it sounds totally like a date to me!

But if it's just inviting a few pals along and cracking some jokes here and there, then it sounds just like a friendly sort of thing.

The only true way you'll ever get to know is if you just ask him, or maybe ask his friend. Just think back on the night after it happens, or think of it now if it already did and just try and think of maybe some slight flirtng or anything he might've done to show it was more than just a hang out thing.

I hope I helped.

It actually depends on your seating arrangement when you get to the movies if you sit next to the guy who invited you hen yes it is a date...but the chances are it is a date hes just nervous and thats why he is bringing a friend along

Hi hun,

Yea - two ways to figger it out, one ask him and two wait and see what happens and how things go! If the guy considers it a date or not very much depends on him individually but if there was only the two of you going its more than likely a date!
My advice? - don't worry about what things are or aren't just go with the flow and have fun! Let me know how things go.

Well do you two flirt? Because it could be a date and he wasn't sure if you would go with him alone, so he brought a friend along thing as a backup.

You wouldn't really know unless you asked or if he reffered it to as a date.

I think there is a thin line between a date & just going as friends when it comes to going to the movies. If he's bringing a friend along, I would see it as just going as friends. But I believe the best way to know for sure is just to ask him yourself.

there is ask him? but if hes a friend then id assume he just wants to hang out.if you dont really know him then i would think maybe he kind of likes depends on who is friend is. i had a boyfriend who brought his friend on a date because he was nervous but we were going out so its kindof diffrent.

Theres a possibility that he likes you.
Considering the fact that he's brining his friendand you're brining yours, he probably wants to get to know you a little bit better before making a move or try to figure out how you feel towards him.

It doesn't mean a date by the way.

Definately not a date. But he does indeed like you. He just dont want to get intimate yet.

it probably means he likes you, but doesn`t really want you to know yet. either that or he just wants to start slow. really though, he probably likes you.
