    Question heading out/hanging out

    What is the difference between the phrases "heading out" and "hanging out"?
    And what does "got to" and "get to" actually mean?
    And is it correct if we use "got to" and "get to" with "heading out" and "hanging out"?

    Please make me understand with some examples.

    Default Re: heading out/hanging out

    Heading out >> moving from somewhere

    H is heading out of the city to escape his debts.

    B s heading out into the desert


    Hanging out >> [literally] something is extruding : His shirt-tails are hanging out under his jacket
    >>
    [metaphorically] socializing with friends : He is hanging out on the street corner with his buddies

    You can use "got to" to indicate an imperative: H has got to head out of the city to escape his debts.
