Been out of the dating game for a while
When you ask, make sure it’s face to face, because nothing beats real-life interaction.*Sidenote, I also want to say that I’m a firm believer that whoever does the asking should also do the paying. My wife Deb has some articles out there about the women doing the asking, but that’s a topic for another day.So you’ve just gone on your first date, and you took initiative, now it’s time to be direct.“It's important to find out the reason why he's averse to the idea of a girlfriend.” It’s likely that this guy is flat-out terrified of commitment or has been hurt in the past.Threatening him with an ultimatum isn’t a good idea; give him time to see how wonderful you are!I’m shocked when I hear the stories of how some men ask some women out. My challenge to the men out there is this: be intentional.
First and foremost, I’m a guy…so I’d like to specifically address the men out there today.He’s the sweetest guy ever when it’s just the two of you. You’re getting the sense that he’s hiding you from his friends. “If you've been dating for a while, then that's a big, red flag when a guy never wants you to meet his friends or family,” Oshima says.
