THE MEN’s CORNER: It is okay for women to ask men out

I really do like this guy in one of my classes and we do talk here and there. I do suspect he flirts with me sometimes but he has yet to make a move.

I really do like this guy in one of my classes and we do talk here and there. I do suspect he flirts with me sometimes but he has yet to make a move. I wouldn’t mind going on a date with him but I don’t want to come off as aggressive or face rejection. Do guys want girls to ask them out or is that weird? Anyway what would you advise?

Hello Jennifer,

Let me tell you a story. About six years ago a young lady walked up to me and without fear or unease asked me to be her boyfriend. I hadn’t really thought about asking her out but we were good friends and we had flirted on occasion. Honestly, when she asked my head went a bit blank but eventually I said yes.

Why did I say yes? I said yes because I fell in ‘love’ with her confidence and sheer bravado. It is quite extraordinary to witness a confident girl in full flow. And honestly, what man wouldn’t want to date such a woman?
All you need to do is totally believe that there is only one answer to your question and you will be home free. Honestly, I don’t think that a girl asking a boy is such a big deal. But perhaps you should honestly ask yourself if the lucky fellow can handle such a question.

Some guys simply cannot handle a strong woman who knows what she wants. And in that case, why would any woman want a man like that?

If you have a question that you’ve always wanted to ask a guy email me itsaguything@newtimes.co.rw
