My sister Sarah has an ongoing thing at her church, where they ask visiting speakers “Is coffee a date?” (You too can have that much fun if you move to Wodonga.) In other words, if you take a girl out for coffee at a café somewhere, does this constitute a date, or does a date have to be more involved, such as dinner and movie?
Hmmm. Let me ponder this question for a sec.
Sarah, when telling me about this, laughed and said “Of course coffee isn’t a date!” But then when a local bloke asked her for coffee, she refused. Not her type, apparently. Huh?
I have, in the recent past, had a dinner and movie evening with a girl. Was it a date? Certainly didn’t feel like one. On another occasion, I took a girl out for coffee and it definitely felt like a date.
But is it a date when one of the two thinks it is, and the other does not? Or is anything a date, so long as there is a guy and a girl involved?
Enquiring minds want to know.
