The room was dark and crowded, and the music blaring from the concert below was almost deafening. I leaned in closer to the stranger sitting next to me. I had him only moments before. He was tall, with dark hair and very distinct facial features. His name was Seth, he greeted me at his friends personal lounge with a large, welcoming smile. I was immediately attracted to him.
My friend and I walked into the lounge, grabbed drinks and sat down to watch the concert. But, I had no interest in the Kid Cudi concert happening below me. All I could think about was the handsome guy that had greeted me at the door. My eyes kept wandering all over the room in desperate attempts to find him. After enough searching our eyes finally met. He made his way down to where I was sitting.
After we introduced ourselves, I don’t think the conversation stopped. I was totally taken with this guy. He was gorgeous, funny, super talkative (just like me)-I just had to have his number. I HAD to see him again. The concert was nearing an end, my heart started to pound like crazy. Should I ask him for his number?
I took the plunge and asked him for his number first. I had to. I could not chance loosing the opportunity to see this guy again. Almost a year and a half later, I’m still dating the guy I met at that concert and I could not be happier.
When I retell this story to my girlfriends the response is often the same. I’ve heard over and over again, “That was bold!” It was a bold move, but NOT because I was a female. I happen to believe that there is nothing wrong with girls asking a guy out. I figured the worst that could happen would be that he would say no.
I would like to believe we are past the days, where girls have to sit and wait for a guy to ask them out. I was really interested in my current boyfriend and wanted to see him again. So, I asked for his number.
Most of the guys I talk to say, that they would greatly appreciate it if a girl asked for their number. It takes the pressure off of them. I did, and it certainly worked for me.
So, girls this one is for you. If you see a guy and you want to talk to him, go for it.
Girls, would you feel comfortable asking for a guy’s number? Guys how would you feel if a girl asked for your number?
