I know a lot about women. Okay, maybe I just know a little. It actually could just be one thing.
Most of what I do know comes from either making my own mistakes or from watching others make them. If there is one thing that I have learned through these experiences, it's that most women don't seem to like men who are wishy washy. If you aren't careful, you can make this mistake from the first time you meet and ask a woman out. So be careful men.
Here are some thoughts:
(1) Never ask a woman out immediately after you meet her. This approach communicates one thing--I like the way you look, so I want to date you. This is insulting to most women. Make a little effort to get to know her before you get to that point.
(2) Be specific about what your plan is. Don't talk about "hanging out" or something general like that. Tell her exactly where you want to go and when. Don't tell her that you may be free later in the week and would she go if you became available. Good grief.
(3) Don't ask for a date at the last minute. This may be okay to do with your buddies or even with a woman that you are friends with. If you are asking for a date though, it's not good.
(4) Don't ask her out by text, email, etc. Asking in person is best, with a phone call a distant second. Don't even consider anything else unless there is absolutely no choice. I have heard mixed opinions about this one from women, but why risk it? As a general rule, very young women may not see a text request as an insult. Why risk missing out on someone good, though? Man up.
Be sure that you understand the difference between asking a woman out for a date and just asking to talk to her again to get to know her better. The classy move is not quite the same for both situations.
