    Why November? Am I missing something?

    ^^Yeah, that's what I thought, too. Maybe it's enough time to give first years to settle in?

    I was also told it's supposed to be enough time to give the other freshmen guys a chance with the freshmen gals.

    ^^^^^Maybe it's b/c they might not be 18 yet?

    No one really cares about that--that's for sure.

    I would love for a girl to ask me out. I'm way too shy.

    well... see if he's into you or not. do a little test run on him and try to flirt a little. you can usually tell if it makes him uncomfortable or if he wants it. i almost asked a guy out b/c i also posted a thread on the internet and people were saying that oh yeah, guys like being asked out by girls. but not every guy will say yes to any girl. so trust your instincts, and save yourself the pain if you feel he isn't that into you.

    I would love that.

    I don't really mind, but it would be a little weird at first if a girl asked me out just because I'm not used to it at all.

    I can't believe anyone still actually wonders about this. It's 2008, get over it.

    As for the "no freshmen until November" thing... never heard of it. I wouldn't think much of a junior or senior dating a freshman in the fall though, so I guess waiting until November is less sketchy, not that I think that sways a lot of people. But freshmen (especially first semester freshmen) are not adults. Juniors and seniors in college should be adults. Adults should not be dating children/adolescents/whatever term you want to use, end of story.

    I can? Even if us gals are more modern, some guys are still pretty old fashioned when it comes to dating. Blame genetics.

    If she's hot it's very nice.

    If she's average or ugly I get annoyed and wonder where she got the crack that gave her so much confidence.

    Really it depends more on how she asks rather than if she asks. Some chicks are just very aggressive and it's a turn off. Other chicks just seem to barely muster up the courage and it's cute. Although maybe that's still just the hot/not dichotomy that I've created.

    I also feel like girls asking guys out makes them feel like they can be lazy and never take the initiative during the relationship.

    And I guess guys asking girls doesn't do the same thing to women? Unbelievable...

    "He's just not that into you."

    Liek, did you read the book?
  • catsushicatsushi Registered User Posts: 1,970 Senior Member
    Nope. Did you?
  • PseudonymPseudonym Registered User Posts: 649 Member
    Makes more sense to blame ingrained social ridiculousness than genetics, IMO. Lots of women as well as men have antiquated ideas about dating and relationships. That doesn't mean it makes any sense. No one is well served by a rigid system where only one party can take the active role.
