What does it mean when a boy asks if you want to "go out"?
I got a message from a boy over fb messenger. We're both 13 and in 7th grade. I've seen him around school and town. He's pretty cool and chill. I think he might like me. I'm just not sure how I feel about him. our conversation went like this:
me: lol hi
him: hey um can i ask you something
me: what do you wanna ask?
him: uhhh um
him: do you like um...
him: go out??
me: why would you wanna go out with someone like me
This conversation was earlier today and he hasn't replied back yet. Does he like me or does he just wanna hang out? I only know him because he was previously in my english class. Also I'm kinda surprised because this is the first time anybody has ever asked me out. He didn't even say if it was a date or where we would go if we do go out. Also please don't say "just ask him" because I'm way too shy and quiet to do that! What does this mean!?
