Technically who should ask who out? Is it the man or the woman? I was always under the impression it did not matter and being a confident girl I quite often the one to broach the subject. However, as I have grown older, I realise it is actually a mans place to do so. Unfortunately this tradition appears to have gone out of the window a long time ago.
In my opinion:
“He who dares…..WINS!!!”
You ve got to take a chance, ask her out. I think from my past experience if you have to ask the guy out it technically does not seem to go anywhere because the relationship (if it progresses to that) has gotten off on the wrong foot, so to speak. The man needs to take charge of the situation, assert his confidence (and charm) and woo that lady! Note to ladies: the only men worth having, will only stick around if you make them ‘work’ for you. Hand yourself on a plate, roll over like a cat having its belly tickled, offer no challenge and this ‘potential’ relationship is going nowhere.
There are of course things you can do to nudge the guy along gently into asking you out. But if you really like this fella then do yourself a favour and sit patiently and wait (whilst giving out all the correct signals of course!) Yes I know, easier said than done. All you need is a bit of flirting, eye contact, interest in him and his life, act confident, laugh and make him laugh etc, etc. Hope you got all this ;).
I am a great believer in that if it is meant to happen then it will. Do not waste your energy or time considering who should ask who. Relationships are not supposed to be difficult or strained. If it is right then it will flow and when something flows, it can only ever go in the right direction!
