This question seems to have no definite answer. A twitter handle called 'questionnaire' threw out this question "Ladies, can you ask a guy out?" a lady answered yes and it brought a lot of comments. Some people were like good that we are in the 21st century while others were like NO! that she would appear too cheap.
But really, would she?
A female friend of mine met a guy late last year and they clicked. They spoke regularly and i thought things would move to the next level. They kept chanting each other's name to me and it was like 'love made in Tokyo'. After about a month, the lady started complaining that she didn't understand the guy that he doesn't seem interested. This baffled me because right from the get go, this guy was crazy about her.
To cut the long story short, the guy said he was confused because the girl was acting like she did not like him. She complained whenever he was nice to her or complimented her and he wasn't sure what to do again. The girl on the other hand said she can't let him know that she likes him. She acts nonchalantly towards him to hide her true feelings yet she expects the poor boy to keep trying. She would rather cry in her room over what hasn't happened than tell him how she feels.
Dear readers, is this the way things should be? Must the guy nearly kill himself before you let him know how you feel? Asking someone out can be nerve wracking, not to talk of the humiliation that comes if she says no. In this time and age where women are playing leading roles everywhere, why can't they also take the bold step and make the first move.
Or guys, do you like the chase? Does it make you feel more of a man when you try hard to get her and eventually do? Does it make her any less of a decent woman if she lets you know how she feels about you? Would her honesty be taken for granted or misused by the so called 'players'?
I would like to know your opinion on this, because there are a lot of people suffering from self inflicted heart aches just because of this...
