If you’ve ever had a crush on someone, you’ve probably wondered if they liked you back. It’s natural to want to know if the person you like is interested in dating or hooking up with you and for good reason. If a boy likes a girl, he’s not just going to sit around hoping she notices him. Instead, he’ll take action and ask her out. But what about when it comes from the other direction. So, do girls ever ask guys out?

Yes, girls do ask guys out. It’s not a common occurrence, but it does happen. However, for most guys, the experience seems to be a lot like getting attacked by an adorable yet extremely vicious wild animal. Most of the time it doesn’t go well and you’re left feeling frustrated, confused, and very much in pain while wondering how you could have possibly been so stupid as to let things get to this point in the first place.

Why Do Girls Ask a Guys Out

There are a variety of reasons why a woman might ask a man on a date. The most obvious is that she likes him. She wants to know if he likes her as well, but she also may want to see if he is interested in her and if he will reject her or not. If you are feeling brave enough for rejection, then maybe asking out the girl at work could be something you should consider doing. Here are two common reasons why girls do ask a guy out:

1. He’s too shy to make a move

This can be very frustrating for a woman. A lot of women don’t want to be the first ones to ask a man out because they don’t want to scare him off, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But as you may have noticed, men are often too shy to do it either. Guys are often just as nervous about asking someone out as women are, if not more so. So if you’ve been waiting around for the right guy to ask you out, maybe it’s time he got up the courage himself?

2. To cure curiosity and get a definite answer

As you begin to get out there, you’ll stop over-analyzing and finally get answers. You’ll also find yourself becoming more confident, especially in your ability to approach women when you want. And as a result of this newfound confidence, you may find that your fear of rejection subsides naturally.

One thing that many people worry about when it comes to making the first move is whether or not they are being too forward or coming across as creepy. But if done right, asking someone out can be easy and natural, and everyone loves being asked out on an actual date.

If things don’t go quite as planned at first (which is totally fine), then take co knowing that just because one person isn’t interested doesn’t mean there aren’t others who are. Being rejected does not mean that something is wrong with the way someone looks; it just means they have different tastes than you do today.

How Common Is It for Girls to Ask Out Guys?

It is very rare for girls to ask guys out. In fact, it’s more common for a girl out than the other way around. This is because as a society we tend to view women as submissive and men as dominant. Men are expected to be assertive when it comes to making romantic advances toward women and initiating relationships.

What Is a Cute Way to Ask a Guy Out?

There are many ways to ask a guy out. To be honest, sometimes the most effective way is to just come right out and say it. But if you’re nervous about that idea or want to make your approach more romantic and unique, here are some cute ways to ask a guy out:

1. Send him innocent messages

Texting is a good way to ask someone out because it’s easy to get an answer, and you can be sure they will see the message. You might think asking someone out in person is the best way, but that can be intimidating if you don’t know them very well and are worried about rejection.

Morning, you! Hope you’re having a good day

A text message is more casual and friendly than calling or messaging via social media; it shows that you have confidence in your feelings towards them.

2. Seek his help

Do Girls Ever Ask Guys Out?

Asking him for help is a great way to start a conversation. You can ask him to show you how to use the new computer, or you could ask him to recommend a good movie. The key here is not being afraid of asking, so don’t be afraid.

Don’t be afraid to ask him for favors or advice either. If someone has been helpful with something in the past and he’s been nice about it, there’s no reason why he wouldn’t be again. And if he is hesitant about helping you at first, that means nothing. Be persistent.

3. Hang out casually

Do Girls Ever Ask Guys Out?

When you’re hanging out casually, it’s important to make sure you don’t come on too strong. You want to be casual and relaxed, but not so casual that she thinks you’re just friends. You also don’t want the situation to become awkward and uncomfortable if things take a turn for the serious before either of you is ready for it.

4. Be upfront

You should be upfront about your feelings, but you don’t need to be blunt. Say something like: “I’ve been thinking about asking you out for a while now. And it’s been hard to know if I should.” You can also say something like: “I know we just met at the party last week, but I really want to ask you out. I think we’d make such good friends.” Be honest about what you want from the relationship and be clear in your intentions. If he’s interested, he’ll say yes; if he’s not interested, he’ll say no, and that’s okay. Asking someone out does not have to mean that the person will always say yes (or even respond).

Final Thought

And in case you’re wondering, yes, girls do ask guys out. It’s extremely rare, but it does happen. And if she does ask you out, and for some reason, you’re not into her, just respond politely and let her down easy. There is no need to be rude. In general, though, I would just avoid this situation altogether by making sure you don’t end up in an uncomfortable situation where she’s asking you out and you have no idea what to say or do next.

A friend once told me this and I quote “If the tables were reversed and she asked me out on a date without having met anyone else before that point (like how most guys would), then yeah. I probably wouldn’t reject her outright either because there might not be anything wrong with her at all. Maybe it was just bad timing for both of us since we didn’t know each other yet.”
