During the date – ‘[Hanging Out]’ versus a ‘Date’ Once the date is secured…hang on, we missed how the date is established. Because Australians not only text instead of calling. And what is with this blurred line of dating, hanging out and hooking up? After the ‘date’ – Clarity and (you guessed it) Confusion?? You can follow her on Twitter @Rhianne Butler or on Linked In here. Well, this is when they bring their friends and you have yours and you grab a beer down at the pub. How is it possible to get signs when there appears to be none? Sure, the continued ‘texting tennis’ (bouncing text messages back and forth) is meant to help clarify these questions.
