Cracking the Shy Guys Shell One Date Night at a Time

Last night I was hanging out with one of my best girlfriends and we came up on the subject of our semi formal.

Okay that was a lie, we were talking about it forever and we’ve been texting all day on who she wants to take. You know, life decisions.

We’re driving around, and I mention the guy who she’s been snap chatting the past two weeks (he called her “babe” the other week so things are serious. He was a little intoxicated, but we don’t mention that).

I bring him up and she immediately freaks out and jumps off a cliff to conclusions,

“Oh my god Caroline what if he says no? I would never EVER ask a guy that I don’t know that well that is SO embarrassing. He probably already has a date night that night..”

She goes on for another 10 minutes.

Right as I catch her when she’s taking a breath I say, “Look you’re never going to know these things unless you put yourself out there!”

More like scream than say, but she probably had a whole speech prepared about not wanting to take him.

Also, to be frank with you, this really does not matter in the long run.

In three years are you going to remember Mark from Sigma Apple Epsilon who threw up on you and then asked for your friend’s number at the end of your formal night?

Okay well, you probably will remember that, but the point is as much fun as date nights are they aren’t the most memorable for a few reasons- ha ha. The dates are truly just an added bonus to a fun night out with your girls.

Guys are extremely simple for the most part. If they like you, they will respond. If they don’t like you, they won’t (or they will make up something they have to do instead of the date night like clean their new Nikes).

Easy as pie.

About an hour and a couple of therapy talks I honestly should have charged her later, for she decides she will say to him, “Hey random what are you doing next Thursday?”

If you haven’t done the “oh-my-gosh-I-completely-forgot-it-was-my-function-lol” text to invite a guy, you’re lying.

Ladies, we need to be more like guys when it comes to the first move. You see a guy at a bar strike out and four seconds later he’s on to the next one.

And you’ll be happy to know that my girlfriend is now going to formal with the “guy she’s been snap chatting” and they are going to have a great ass time.

That she probably won’t remember in three years.
