What is a date?
Every person inerprets a date differently. IT can be escort or an event occuring between two consenting people who have a romantic interest. It can be getting to know someone on a romantic level.The purpose behind a date is to see if you are compatible with that person. A date is not ‘hanging out’ so if a guy asks you to hang out, it is not a date. Dating is like an interview. You are asked a series of questions to see if you are qualified for the position. Once you get the job, you need a great overall performance or risk getting fired.
In my opinion, asking someone is difficult because of the fear of rejection. I’d say ‘everything will be fine’ when it comes to aksing someone out, but not everyone can take rejection lightly. According to Darwin’s Theory of Natural Selection, we select our potential mates in order to survive; furthermore we look for mates with certain favorable traits to ensure our own survival. When someone rejects you, its not because of you, but because that person’s preferences. Basically smile, walk away, and realize there are soo many other people out there.
What makes it harder is that we’re women. Women are not supposed to ask out men because it makes us look ‘desperate’ or we are not allowed to demasculate a man. Its really difficult because the 21st century is breeding the new type of women. If you are comfortable enough to ask a guy out, go for it.
