semantics: a date is a date is a date?

"The sort of thing you hear when someone's talking on a cell phone"

"Oh, honey, no. I wouldn't call it a date. No one does that any more. It implies commitment and we know how committed gay men are to any sort of relationship. Nowadays it's called going out for a drink, or coffee. Brunch is too serious these days too. Imagine having to talk to anyone for more than two hours straight. Who can? Nobody's that interesting anyway. What do you think the alcohol is for? Here's what I'd do. Call him up, tell him you'll have coffee but that it's not a date. That way you still have your options open and he can't get mad if you don't call him back."
