If a guy asks to hang out, you are probably already thinking: Sometimes you just have to open up direct lines of communication, and ask the obvious question.

Chances are that when you do, both parties will be relieved.

Social media and texting has replaced interactions that used to be face-to-face.Last fall I started seeing a client, we’ll call her Tracy, who recently went through a devastating break up.Tracy was dating a handsome, successful start-up entrepreneur named Tom.More often than not, we choose to suggest a casual-sounding hangout rather than an actual date.

While this tactic lessens some of the pressure we feel, it can raise confusion—what is the point of this time together?

But in the absence of clear communication, I hope to offer a few tidbits of advice. Here’s how to sift through the confusion and coax that man into saying what he means. Unless you plan on participating in an arranged marriage, this bonding time is essential.
