Sorry Sherry.

I also remember her previous posts about this man.  The one question that no one has seemed to ask, is this man interested in any women in a romantic way.  Either way, he should have the courage to be up front with her about who or what he wants.

He did a nice thing. When he heard your birthday plans were canceled because your mom was under the weather, he offered to take you out. Nice friendly gesture. Don't overthink this. He is a friend. I found when a man is really interested, he will let you know loud and clear.😁

Yep, dinner with a friend...no worries, just enjoy and have a happy birthday!

It would be a date if you were dating.

If there are romantic feelings on both sides then it sounds like a date but if not then it's just two friends going out to celebrate a birthday!

Feelings are simply human
