There was once a day where if a male like a female he would ask her on a date. If guy did not like the girl, he simply wouldn't ask her on a date. In 2013 dating seems to be completely out of the window and the new thing is "kicking it" or "hanging out". If a guy asks you to "kick it" there's no way of knowing if he likes you or not. He may just want some company or a new female friend or he could really like you, but who knows? Call me old fashion but I need things to be clear and "hanging out" does not provide any sort of clarity. If you like a person what's wrong with asking them on a date? No she doesn't want to play things by ear, she wants you to take control of the situation and make things happen. If you like a person, take the time out to plan a date. Even if it is just a simple dinner and movie, at least put forth some effort to show that you are interested. If you are not interested, make that clear. Make sure the person you are hanging out with knows that you are just "hanging out" and nothing more.
Although times have changed and people have tried to complicate things, the answers to the question "Do you like me" still remain simple, yes or no.
