DATING, HANGING OUT..or NEITHER...

Something scares you men. It's not terrorism, economic recession, global warming, or gasoline prices. These things might worry you, but something else makes your palms sweat and your pulse hit triple digits, that is... Asking a girl out on a date. That's because asking a girl out involves potential pain. If the object of your affection becomes aware of your intentions, she might not reciprocate, & that's going to hurt. I don't care if you're the most self-confident, well-adjusted person around; rejection hurts! It makes the remaining friendship awkward at best, humiliation at worst. Revealing romantic feelings is a risky business. Many guys find a way around the risk, or at least they think they do. Instead of asking a girl out on a date & being bold in their intentions, they turn to the soggy milquetoast alternative to dating... "Hanging Out".
Dont get me wrong hanging out every now & again is fun, but seriously what happened to the good old days when a guy would actually pick up the phone & call a girl to ask her out? Seems that now days it involves a text asking if they wanna hang or go do this, clearly not clarifying "date" or "hang out". Being a girl it makes the situation slightly awkward if you go thinking its a date, only to get there & there to be more girls than guys or visa versa. Its not that big group "dates" are bad, its when the numbers of girls dont match the number of guys, that bugs us.
I'm sure i'm not the only girl who feels this way, but i wish guys could just get in there head that dating is cool & more fun than hanging out.The end, thats all i gotta say!
