You've gone out to dinner twice with a guy. You have plans for a third dinner date.
You've known the guy for a year and a half. The dinners are new.

Are you dating or friends?

How can you tell?



(For those that want to reply with: Just ask. Assume thats not an option. There must be some key points/obvious clues.)

Why would asking not be an option?

I think he is at least interested in you. Maybe you guys are dating?

Do you feel differently now than you did when you were friends and not going on dinners? For me there's the ability to get closer to that individual that I didn't have when we were within the boundary of friendship. Did you kiss him? How does it feel when you hold hands? Is it just friendly? I can wrap my arms around my friends and not feel anything but care but when I hug my sweetie I feel softer. Things like that.

Does he reach across the table to hold your hands?

Is he getting the door for you?

Is he buying the dinner??

Up to this point, we were more casual acquantances.

Now, we are doing dinner, so it got me thinking- dating or friends.

He hasnt held my hand.

He has been opening doors and other "date" like behaviors that were not there before.

Yes he did pay for dinner.
