But if you’ve never made the first move, it can be scary to ask a guy out for the first time. There’s always the risk of rejection (wish I could protect you from that totally, but I can’t), but you’ll never know if you don’t go for it, girl!
So, here’s how to ask a guy out. When you’re talking to him, mention an upcoming event–like a school football game or the opening of the ice skating rink in town–and say you were thinking of going on a specific day, would he want to go with you and maybe hang out afterward?
If he says he’s busy that day or that he’s not into ice skating, don’t suggest something else or another day. If he likes you and wants to go out with you, believe me, he’ll suggest something else. If he doesn’t, just say “Okay, well, if you want to hang out some other time, let me know,” and then just drop it. Rejection sucks, but it’s way easier for both of you if he just has to say he’s busy that day instead of saying he doesn’t like you that way . . . right? Right.
Another big tip? Absolutely, under no circumstances, ask him to go to something super big, like an NFL football game or to see his favorite band in concert. If you’re like, “Hey, Joey–I got tickets to the Giants game this weekend. Want to go?,” he might say yes just to go see his favorite football team. . . not because he likes you. And that? Well, that’s not what you want at all.
