Crusher Gals...if you do invite your shy crush out on a date...be specific with choices A,B or C. Don't leave it open ended like 'Hey, lets hang out sometimes'...or it prob won't happen.
Reason being, if he is shy it will take balls on his part to contact you to set things up. If he had the balls to start with you would not need to invite him out.
This happened to me when I was kid. I was maybe 20 and an older lady asked me if I wanted to go out with her sometimes. I said OK and we left it at that...to go out sometimes, but nothing concrete was discussed.
Well, I never went out with her.
If she had said 'do you want to go out tomorrow for this, Saturday for that or next Tuesday,' then things could be set and decided upon then and there and I would not have to risk coming out of my 'shy shell.'
So ladies, say what you mean and mean what you say...and be as clear and specific as you can.
