Is it not a good idea for a woman to presue a man?

I was talking and my dad over heard me going to ask the guy out.
And he said " you don't ask out a man, he supposed to ask you out."

Anyways I have followed his advice but I have never been asked out I never had a boyfriend. I never get noticed

So guys or fathers of daughters why do some dads want the guy to ask the girl.

is it not a good idea to ask a guy out?

Am I just setting my self up for failure?


Most Helpful Guy

  • Your dad is old-fashioned and doesn't understand how modern dating works.

    Men come in a few stripes:
    1) cowards who won't ask you out
    2) guys who don't want to ask you out, for a variety of reasons
    3) guys who will ask you out who you may or may not be interested in

    3 is outnumbered severely. And the number of men making up item 3 is shrinking -- because more of them are ending up in items 1 and 2.

    So if you want to date, you are very likely going to have to put in much more effort with today's men.

  • Ask him out. Your dad has no idea what dating is like now any more than your grandmother does. The world has changed.
