Here’s an interesting article from the New York Times. It’s all about the “man date”:
“Simply defined, a man date is two heterosexual men socializing without the crutch of business or sports. It is two guys meeting for the kind of outing a straight man might reasonably arrange with a woman. Dining together across a table without the aid of a television is a man date; eating at a bar is not. Taking a walk in the park together is a man date; going for a jog is not. Attending the movie ‘Friday Night Lights’ is a man date, but going to see the Jets play is definitely not.”
Based on their definition, I’m pretty sure I’ve been on some man dates but didn’t know what it was called at the time. And each time, I was very aware of not “gaying up” the whole evening. I wonder what you call it when like eight to ten guys go out without the crutch of business or sports? Is that like a “sausage train”?
