Stealth Dating.

i just came up with this, and i'm supremely pleased with it.

stealth dating is going out on a date with someone and (1) you, the initiator of the date, know full well that you intend but you don't mention it as such to your companion, knowing that it might be coming on too strong, or if you are not sure of your interest or their interest. (2) stealth dating also applies to the apprehended, the person who is asked to accompany the other. you find out in the middle of your main course that this is in fact a date, as it is hesitantly dropped (or casually) into the conversation, and you must now decided how to eat your food: mouth open or closed.
