this has happened to me a couple of times before: I meet a girl i really like but never get the courage to ask her out.My confidence took a shot last year when i asked someone out and got flat out rejected.Sometimes i just wish it wouldnt have to be guys asking girls out, but that they would ask us out.
Forgive me if i didnt post right or something, im new to the site.

hey, we're working on getting society into the 21st Century. by that, i mean we actively encourage guys AND GALS to gather up the guts to ask people out. people would get so much further in life -- in EVERYTHING they do -- if only they'd just be proactive.

anyway, people get rejected. from jobs. from schools. from people. GET USED TO IT. It hurts, but you don't get anywhere if you hide from the possibility.

think about it: if you never ask, your chances are 0% yes, 100% no. but if you do ask, the chances of getting a yes increase to something above zero.

so c'mon guy, grow the cojones to just do it. and don't ask out of nowhere. get to know a girl by talking to her first, then when you are sure you're getting along, invite her to hang out. hang out a while, then try asking her to a dance. then after the dance, try asking her out.

You've just got to do it. Dating is hard! I want to second gumdrop's suggestion of moving into asking girls out: asking for a dance, a phone number. If you're in high school or college, as her to sit with you for lunch in the cafeteria.

We've all got to deal with rejection. It stinks, but it's inevitable.
