How to ask a guy out

19 May 2016, 15:23

 Our society holds to the idea that men have to be askers and it is weird/unethical for a woman to ask a man out. Well, feels sweet when a man asks you out but what happens when you spot a guy who is your type but he is the shy-type? Would you still care about what the society holds to?

 How do you ask him out?Here is the idea.

 Don't over think it. Guys don't get asked out by women nearly as often as the opposite, so you can do just about anything and still be successful. Everyone wins, and honestly, they are just thrilled by the effort. Whether he is someone you've been trying to get with for a while, or some hot dude guy at the gym that just caught your eye, asking him out is crazy simple.

Use a terrible pick-up line. 

You know all those awful pick-up lines you've had used on you pretty much constantly? Well, he doesn’t. Since society still encourages men to be the askers in most situations, everything is still so new to him. You could probably pick a trite, cheesy pick-up line and it would still work on him. You are on easy mode here.

Hand him your phone number

That's it. You're basically done. It's all on him now. 

Initiate a conversation:

There are effectively two reasons a stranger would come up and just start talking to you: Either they want to steal your wallet, or they want help. Just initiating conversation is enough to let him know you're interested in him (unless he is clueless).

Ask him out!

He'll either say "yes" or "no," or maybe spend a minute stammering because he is so taken aback.

A date can be also a little tricky; because he might not realize it's a date, so make sure you explicitly tell him it is a date at some point. Be straight and to the point. 

Buy him a drink.

This is a universal sign for "I want to slam tequila shots and make out with you." He'll get the hint.
