A casual English expression that is simple, but has a more seriousmeaning.
You are in a restaurant with your friend.
You ask him:
“Can we go out?”
This can have two meanings.
One meaning is leave the restaurant.
Other meaning is romantic interest, want to go dating.
“Go outside” is more clear.
If there is no romantic intention, can say “go outside” to be safe.
“Will you go out with me?”
“Do you want to go out with me?”
“Go outside” means leave a place.
“Go out” is short form for “go out on a date”.
Be careful which meaning you are saying or hearing!
A girl told me she wouldn’t go out with me.
My cat also won’t go outside with me.
It’s a me day!
