Let’s face it, it’s still different for a girl to ask a guy out then the more traditional deal where the guy has to do the asking. So, what’s a girl to do if she meets someone she’d really like to see more of? These ten excellent tips on how to ask a guy out, should help.
1 – Be strong, but not pushy. A lot of women get it in their heads, that if they ask a guy out, it’ll be a done deal. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Don’t expect the guy to be flattered or lucky that you chose him. He may not be interested after all.
2 – Be polite. Some girls think they should be brash when asking a guy out. While this may work on some guys, as a general rule, you’ll do better being sweet and polite.
3 – Know what you’re going to say first. Be sure you have something in mind for the date and how you want to ask for it before approaching your target.
4 – Pick a good time and place. When he’s alone is generally best. Also, try to pick a spot where you won’t be interrupted and you’re reasonably sure he’s not in a hurry to get somewhere else.
5 – Put yourself in his shoes. Some guys are not into girls doing the asking, so be prepared for unexpected reactions.
6 – Be a girl. Use your femininity, but not as a weapon or a come-on. If you go that route, your date is going to expect a lot more than just a date.
7 – Be appropriate. Don’t ask a guy to a fashion show. Similarly, if the guy seems the sensitive sort, you might want to steer clear of asking if he’d like to go to a goth party.
8 – Be clear. Sometimes people start to ramble when they get nervous, so, listen to yourself and make sure that somewhere in all your talking, you’re actually getting to the part where you ask him out.
9 – Listen. Once you start talking to the guy, make sure you listen to what he has to say, both before and after you actually ask him out. Also, watch his body language to see if he’s acting receptive or trying to run away.
10 – Be kind. Along with being polite, is being kind. The guy is under no obligation to go out with you, and there is the possibility he might just say no. If so, don’t get angry, or say ugly things, simply nod and be on your way. You’ll feel better afterwards.
These ten excellent tips on how to ask a guy out can be used by girls of any age when considering asking a guy out. If you are in a position to be doing so, I hope these tips help. Good luck.
