It is not necessarily a dating term because you can hang out with anyone. It has no specific meaning. If you meet someone you like you can hang out to see if there is a lot of chemistry if you have common interests and if you could potentially be more than friends.
Nothing has happened, yet. This means that it is unlikely Arcade NY sex dating you will ever be more than just a friend to this person that you have a crush on that you like a lot.

A good example is in the comedy Just Friends with Ryan Reynolds.
