Definition: time with a person of the opposite gender that the host/hostess sees as a date but which is not seen by the guest as a date due to the lack of definition
Pros: apparently some guys like to avoid the risk of asking a girl on a date. I don’t blame them. I’m just saying that from a girl’s point of view, clarity is a wonderful thing*. Other than that, I can’t see a benefit. I haven’t heard of a girl who likes this. But on to cons…
Cons: girl is likely caught off-guard (and may be under-dressed or ill-equipped) and loses respect for the guy who accidentally asked her out.
*Favorite line of my dad’s (the clarity part, not the girl’s point of view part)

As my sister says, “Be a man. Make your intentions clear from the start.” You’ll earn respect for it.
