The Shy Guy

i was a shy kid growing up. i started to grow out of it during my junior year of high school, and over the last six years i feel that i have made great progress. especially with my day to day dealings with people, public speaking, ect. i still feel that i have some room to grow. especially when it comes to women.

when it comes to asking a girl on a date i become that shy kid again. i think it's a combination of fears that make me shy about approaching women. the fear of rejection and/or the fear of the awkwardness that is created after being turned down by someone you know and see on a regular basis. thus i do my share of online dating.

yesterday i read an article called
"how to ask him out". this would be a great shift of the pyridine for us shy guys. i have seen this happen first hand and applaud the women who have done so, and on behalf of us shy guys out there. i whish more women would do this. there are a lot of really great guys who just need a little bit of help when it comes to landing a date. personally i think a woman who is willing to approach a guys is all the more attractive.

Man, if you think getting them to ask you out is hard, try getting 'em to pay for the dates too!

I've been spammed alot lately too...I have know Idea what is up with it...maybe spam season or something?

In one of the only ways I am old fashon is that I want the guy to make the first move...but don't worry, there are girls who will make the first move.

But. . BUT. . .one of the loffly things about BEING a girl is the whole "they ask YOU out" thing. Really. We can't just shift the whole Paradigm. It'd be madness. ;-)

Besides, asking people out is, like, hella scary. eeep!
