Most Helpful Guy
For me it wouldn't be such a good idea to ask me out since if I was interested, I would have already asked. For shy guys, it might be a good idea, since they might have wanted to ask but couldn't find it in themselves to do so.
I think a woman needs to have her own share of initiative, but I see that more in the realm of flirting and indicating interest to help give signs to the other guy that you want him to ask you out. I don't necessarily see it as useful to offer yourself on a silver platter by asking him out.
I wouldn't always have the most noble intentions either if a girl asked me out. If I was like, "Hmm, I'm not really into her but she's offering herself to me", I might have utilized that at some point when I was young and not so noble to just pursue a sexual relationship and nothing more.
This might be kind of old-school thinking, but I still see society and even our sexual attraction being shaped by men pursuing and leading women, not the other way around. If the idea of a woman twirling a man in a dance, tipping him over, and planting a kiss seems odd, so too does it seem odd to me for a woman to be asking the man out.1
