Asking women out - your observations



Log in to see fewer ads
There is danger in asking for a phone number, date, etc. My biggest concern is that they could say yes and who knows how that might turn out. A small fear of rejection is that they will say no and life goes back to normal.

Yet, IMO women liked to be asked out. Heard my gal friend and her friends just gush like school children when a guy hits on them. Of course, the more attractive the guy the more they gush unless he's a keeper and then they keep that information to themselves while they figure out how much of a keeper he is.

So just asking for observations and maybe we'll find some wisdom.

Young people don't date anymore. They just "hang out." And guys don't pick girls up at their homes anymore. I don't get it.

I haven't been on a "date" in over thirty years. I got married in 88, we split in 2004 and nearly every woman I meet has baggage I don't want to deal with.

I haven't asked a woman out since 1958. If I remember right I asked if I could take her to a movie and she accepted which eventually resulted us becoming wed in 1959. I have no idea what is said by anyone today.

I hide on the shelf anymore or maybe I'm lost on the shelf, anyways...I'm beat up and ugly, what hangs is the same


plus I'm married one year shy of a one half century



But as i remember, the asking out part didn't happen much...it was more of a physical phenomena.

Married at 19...lasted 13 yrs. Remarried at 36...lasted 19 yrs. I'm done. Do I miss a woman's company ..ABSOLUTELY... at times... What I love most now is coming home after a 12hr shift... crack open a beer and sit out back and bask in the only unconditional love I've ever known... Buddy (8lb stray when he wandered up) my 120lb Staffordshire Terrier...and Katie, my 1st rescue who is so mixed no one has a clue as to what she is... other than sweet. Not knocking marriage or dating... in fact I'm envious of these guys that are going strong 35yrs plus.... I could not make it happen...the older I get the more comfortable I am with being single.

Well, I'm 50-something and married, so take this with a grain of salt...

Just ask.

You might want to ease into that conversation with something mild like, "so, you married?"

"boyfriend?"

"Want another one?"

In my experience, it's lack of confidence that kills your chances.

Oh, and the desperation. Women can smell that a mile away, much like you can when you're not in your own bubble of it.

You got two outcomes, "yes" (she'll go out with you) and "no" (she won't). Neither of these kill you in the short term.

Until she moves in and you teach her how to shoot. You gotta think these things out further guys.

If that qualifies as "short term," you're probably doing something wrong.

Shortly after my ex and I separated in early 2018, my then 19 year old Son asked me a bunch of questions about girls, dating, etc. I told him what I knew, but also said that I was just starting over in what's become a whole new world concerning such things. I was married for 30 years.

He recently told me that girls have made the first move more often than he has. I don't know if that's because he's tall and good looking, has a job/apartment, is around a lot of girls in school, or because times have changed. No doubt a combination of factors.

A friend introduced me to the lady I've been dating for the past ten months, and she's the only one I've asked out since splitting with my ex. So I have almost zero recent experience.

I'm studying up on women, dating, marriage, etc. now. I'm finding a lot of helpful info online that I wish I'd had when I hit 18. Might have saved me a whole lot of grief and roughly $1,750,000 (and counting).

Hey Whiplash:

Grow a pair and go for it!

Get some courage!

Whats the worst that can happen, she rejects you?

Just be honest, tell her she looks interesting and you would like to know her better, cause, after all, if you are considering asking her out then she obviously appears interesting to you and you would really like to find out more. Act yourself, be polite, and show some chivalry (a recent thread here on Rimfire Central).

Ask her what her interests are, what she does to relax, blow off steam, and ask her if she enjoys some of what you like to do too.

Having just successfully found a special woman after a divorce, its mostly on the dating sights nowadays. And being sixty years old, I was getting messages each and every day. It was fun, enjoyable, and I tried to encourage and be polite to women that just did not appeal to me as well.

And also, make sure you study this video inside and out:

Crankster

Consider yourself fortunate that you have $1.75 mil to lose.
