they get scared[/quote]
I’ve noticed this myself. IIRC browndisaster, you’re young, in school and already being decently successful pursuing something right? I’m in the same boat. I have a girlfriend but 99% of the time I interact with girls at school or work who are in my age range they are intimidated as fuck because most of their male peers are sitting in dorm rooms unshowered and playing xbox.
Don’t worry opie, you have at least a 50/50 change of a girl either not really being into you, or being scared as fuck because they are young and don’t know wtf they are doing.[/quote]
Yeah, my experience is mainly that they’re just nervous about the date itself… i.e. the girl thinks about spending an hour IRL 1 on 1 talking about themselves with an attractive guy who’s acknowledged he likes her, then backs out because she gets nervous. It’s intimidating for a girl who otherwise spends most her free time on social media getting attention from friendzone guys.
My best bet has been to befriend the girl, then ask her out. If you’re desirable to women, the path out of friend zone is just a few disparaging comments away. …and my whole life I thought I was the one being the reddit neckbeard phaggot.
*none of this applies if you were born before the 90s or are dealing with confident women[/quote]
Yeah, When meeting my current girlfriend I kept things super casual, friendly, and a little flirty after exchanging numbers, When she became more comfortable things progressed extremely quickly.
This is generally how you would want to start a relationship anyways. Just diving into a date right away, unless you are great at creating conversation (most young people are not) can really just be asking for failure.
If you’re just looking to hook up you probably should just next immediately.
