Are these dates or just hangouts? I'm so confused!

Ok. Here's the deal:
There is this guy that I used to be friends with in high school (about 10 years ago). We've been friends on Facebook for a while, but never really talked to one another. However, recently he started "liking" my photos, commenting on my statuses, and the like. Last week he asked me out of the blue if I wanted to go to the Orchard and hiking with him. That "date" (or what I think might have been a date) happened last Sunday. It was fun and we ended the afternoon with a hug. He texted me as soon as I got home.
He has been texting me every single day this week asking me how I'm doing and just initiating just basic conversation. Yesterday he invited me to go hiking with him at one of our state parks, and I went. It was fun. I flirted around with him to see if he would "bite", and it seemed to work a little, but I'm not sure. He even paid for dinner afterwards. When he dropped me off at my house, I got another hug. Yay. He text me as soon as he got home. Basic conversation about how he had a great time, blah, blah, blah.
Today he asked me to go to a movie with him. I went, he paid, it was fun. When we were done, another hug (sigh). More texting when I got home.
I am just having trouble reading what is going on. I'm a single mother with a 2 year old, and I've never been a traditional dater. Every date I have ever been on has ended with at least a kiss. So this is all new to me. I know he's not a shy guy. He's a big talker and even initiates conversation with complete strangers.
I just don't understand what is going on. Does he like me? Are these dates? If so, how long should I wait for a dang kiss? I don't want to initiate it for fear of reading too much everything and the resulting rejection. I also don't want to ask him because I don't want to pressure him into something he's not comfortable with or ready for. *Sigh*
False alarm, friends! He IS into me. I got a nice big make-out session this evening and it was AMAZING.
