Non-date Date

What does non-date date mean?

A hang out date

A non-date date is when two people hang out together with unclear romantic feelings. It is confusing for both parties because it sits in the tension between being casual with a person and trying to impress him or her.

Non-date dates have become more common as "Netflix and chill" and "Friends with benefits" have become the norm in dating culture. Also, there is a fear of putting labels on relationships and acting chill, which makes non-date dates more popular.
