I'm in the same page as @M_A_X. I dont understand social cues and I tend to be too damn strait forward when I approach a girl so I had no choice but to pick A. but oh well I think I've gotten pretty far for a person who has this type of handicap
Nice question. I'd say the first date, it's getting your foot in the door to have that chance to show her who you are. When you're in, then you get to talk to her with her shields down and hit it off.
With that social shield/slut shaming stuff going on, it makes it hard, given they act so innocent and thus your subtle suggestions for a date end up being misinterpreted as oh yeah let's all go there (with all other people in social circle). How do you just flat out tell someone, you and me, I want to just see you.
With a new girl, it's maybe a bit easier, given you're brand new. But when you meet people at uni or work, it's tough given you are in a circle. They say not to use the word date, but not sure since if you don't, then it may not come across as that?
I asked a girl on a date today, she said yes at first and seemed super excited about it, then she called me and called it off because there is only 3 weeks of school left before we head home from college and didn't want to start anything now. I realized that getting rejected for a date isn't the worst. I'll probably ask her out again come next semester. The number part was easy because she was just giving it out to everyone because she had to for an event lol. I've just maintained contact for the past month and built up the courage to ask her out after it seemed obvious she liked me.
