    First of all - this is NOT a date

    anyway, this cute guy in work and I have been friends for a while. We have be going out (as friends) with other work people bowling and then see a film. I can not make it the next time they do sooo we said it would be fun just for us two to go to the cinema without the others (who fart loudly and slurp and burp in the quiet bits of the films) as friends

    As its just the two of us we thought instead of bowling which is no fun as a two, we'd go and have frankie and bennies but ended up having just big fight because he said he wanted to pay for me.

    This is all happening on thursday (the meal and the film) and everyone at work keeps saying stuff suggesting I am seeing this guy and its a date.

    What do you reckon?

    Only the fact he was so insistent on paying is quite a good sign that he fancies you. Especially since you argued over this: if he didn't care why would he bother arguing? He was probably a bit uncomfortable (as you are when you really like someome) about the whole thing but believed he should pay.

    If I didn't care about a girl and she insisted on paying her part, I'd say go ahead.

    Erm . . . :love:
    Sorry, back to the point.
    I reckon it sounds very datish, and I have highlighted the bits which give me that impression.
    However I suppose it could just be two friends going out together, some people manage it. Just try and make sure that he knows that it is just as friends, if you have to talk about a "fit/cute/sexy/hot/good-looking (delete as appropriate) guy you saw in a pub or somewhere the other day.
    Alternatively you could play him like a violin.
    Your choice.

    Stretch him to breaking point and drag a bow across him? Ouch.

    If you want it to be date, whether this one is or not, it doesn't mean it can't happen again...and do you really like him? It sounds like although both of you agreed it's not a date, both of you want it to be, so why not make another...?

    Lmao!

    Going back to the original post - yes, it does sound like he wants it to be a date, but whether it actually is depends on you. Do you like the guy? It sounds like he likes you - going to the cinema and for a meal together, he wants to pay ... :rolleyes: ! If you're interested, you for it, but if not, do what deej2 suggested so you show him you see him as a mate without hurting the guy's feelings.

    The phrase 'this cute guy' is rather telling

    If I eat with a woman, I pay, even when I don't fancy her.

    Thank you!

    I am getting soo annoyed with everyone in work who are saying its a date because come Thursday I know they will be there waiting to wolf whistle etc etc when we arrive (and that includes the managers)

    Anyway, we wanted to see Island but he is being dragged by someone in his family tomorrow to see it and I am NOT that cruel to make "cute boy" see the same film twice in one week so I suggested Crash and he suggested Perfect Catch...soo hmm

    Yes I would like to get it together (and no, I don't treat boys like violins because I own one, of the wooden type that is) but as I am possibly moving 4 hours away in a months time, I do not reckon, "cute boy", a 16 year old (did I mention that already?) who is just about to start sixth form, is willing to make that sort of commitment.

    (BTW This is happening on results day, if you hadn't clicked so I am going to celebrate or whatever my results with him)

    Why? If it's a mate we split the bill.

    I wouldnt say that, he may be very willing to make that commitment, if you are. Dont forget that if things dont work out because of the distance you can split up but remain good friends.
