Does This Guy Want to Date or Be Friends?
Fri, 07-04-2014 - 3:57am

I have accounts on a few dating sites OkCupid and Plenty Of Fish on OkCupid this guy messages me surprised to see I was a fan of this TV show because he hadn't found any other females who liked it. He then kept viewing my profile and then I found him on Plenty Of Fish and messaged him there. On POF we continued talking as of June 28th up until now July 4th about a week. We had arranged to meet up this weekend but during one of our chats I had messaged him with saying

"Would you consider if we do meet up this weekend our first date?"

He replied back with

"I would not feel comfortable considering it or labeling the meeting as a date. Most of the times before I would consider dating or calling something a date it would be after continued exposure to a person and becoming friends. From that point a friendship can evolve into a relationship, and I would state then we are dating and/or going on dates."

So should I still meet him or just cut him off and move on? I don't like the friends first thing because friends always leads to the friend zone
