Ladies, how many of you have waited around for your crush to ask you out on a date? (I know I have!) It could take days, weeks, months — heck, he might never ask you out because it’s such an intimidating question. Our culture has long discouraged women from doing the asking, lest they appear desperate or aggressive; but one gal was determined to change that. Oloni, an award-winning sex and relationships blogger, challenged her female Twitter followers to ask a dude out and share a screenshot of the response. So, what happens when women ask men out on a date?
Ladies ask that guy you fancy out on a date and tweet me a screen shot of his response. 💁🏾

What’s wrong with women taking charge? Absolutely nothing. And in many cases, it paid off. Could it be that guys like when women take the reins and ask for that first date?

It wasn’t always a happy ending, though. Men stand the risk of getting rejected when they ask a woman out; and the situation is no different when the tables are turned. Some ladies were met with a brutal NO.

Well, ladies, we give you credit for your bravery. He just wasn’t the one for you (but that’s OK). Don’t let this discourage you, because when asked about the possibility of women asking them out, men seem to be all for it. Take this Reddit thread, for instance. When asked about the idea of the woman making the first move, here’s what some of the fellas said.
You hear that, ladies? Not only are they OK with it, but they like it. Would you ever ask your crush out on a date? Have you already tried it? Let us know in the comments!
