When to people are dating and the male doesn't make very many flirty moves during the date (ie: holding hands, excessive compliments) because he is unaware of the females intentions. It's like dating but in a nonserious way. It's a terrible limbo, stuck between the dating and friend zone. People stuck here are trapped and have no clear guidance on how to act around the female, everyday they hope for the sweet release of "oh i just like you as a friend" or "lets make this more serious." But it never comes.....
Male: I like you. It's cool we've been going out so much.
Female: I didn't know that. I thought we were Friend Dating. You never flirt with me.
Male: I just tried to kiss you and told you I liked you... are you serious?

Alison: "Me and Tom are going out on a friend/date tonight.

Possible meaning: Alison and Tom say they are friends, but they really are more.

Possible meaning #2: Either Alison or Tom just think they are friends while the other thinks it's more.

Possible meaning #3: Neither Alison nor Tom really give a shit what their status is but just want to go out anyway.
