You're interested in him, but he isn't asking you out. You want to
ask him out but you're afraid of the possibility of being rejected.
Oh, boy, can some men relate! It's pretty funny when they both want
to go out with one another, but they're both too chicken to ask.
Ok, so it's not all that funny.
For many singles it just ain't that easy to blurt out, "Hey, how
'bout you and I going out on a date?" That thought of being
embarrassed because he/she said "no" is to powerful for some people
to ask a simple question like that. Well, how about throwing some
hints his way?
Granted, with some men you need to use a brick! Men, huh?!
First off, find out if he has a girlfriend. Yeah, yeah, you can just
ask him, but, again, many women don't have the guts to do that. Here
are a few things you could force out of yourself:
"What does your girlfriend think about that?"
"I bet you drive your girlfriend nuts?"
Insert things like that into the conversation.
If he says he doesn't have one, reply back in a flirtatious way:
"Would you like one?" and then give him a playful wink.
As not to turn it into a possibly uncomfortable situation in case he
isn't interested, don't stand there looking at him, expecting an
answer. Quickly change the subject, and/or continue on with what you
were doing before he came. Just give him a smile and walk away.
