The Question Club
Mostly girls here.|
Was discussing this with a guy friend, the fact that when guys ask advice about asking girls out, they're generally told to be straight-forward... that may be easiest on them, sure- "Do you want to go to a movie with me Saturday night?" can really only be answered with "Sure, what movie?" or "Uhm, no, speech about just friends and you not being my type." The most vague answer they can get is "oh, no, sorry, i have plans for that night," and you can kindof tell if they're not interested if they don't say something like "But what about Friday?"
What about girls, what do we think is easier for *being* asked out?
The examples that I gave:
Guy A has been flirting with you a little, calls you and says that he knows your birthday is soon/wants to celebrate your super hard class together being over/some sort of occasion, and would you like to go to Hickory Park* with him on Friday night?
Guy B has been flirting with you a little, you email him to ask about something he's offered to help you with, he emails you back like "Okay, I have to go to work at 4 on Sunday, but we can work on it noonish till then... And I'm free after 9 pm Saturday night if you want to do anything then :D"
*For those not familiar with Hickory park, read "college town 'family dining' that tends to get picked for college student dates because it's fairly nice and also fairly cheap"
Guy A is direct. Guy B has left you room to just pretend he never said that if you want to, so you don't have to give him the just friends/not my type speech.
Whom are you more likely to say yes to?
Edit: assume all else equal and that you can only date one of them :P
