Excerpt: “By asking a guy out, you show you are self-confident and assertive, both qualities that are generally seen as healthy and attractive. Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D. , is a Los Angeles-based psychologist, whose specialties include relationships. She shared with me, ‘For a guy to be asked out by a girl, he doesn’t have to wonder if she’s interested in him and his fear of rejection can be significantly decreased. As a result, he might feel more secure and comfortable in showing interest back to her and accepting her offer if he is interested in her. In addition, when a girl takes the initiative to ask a guy out, the girl is deliberately selecting someone that she knows she wants to go on a date with, rather than just being passive and hoping someone she likes will ask her out.’”
