Go On… Go Out With Him

Feb 25

As a girl, you’ve probably spent hours with your girlfriends agonising over whether you should go out with a guy. Maybe you don’t know him very well, or in the case of online dating you really don’t know him at all. Maybe he asked for your number last Friday night at the bar and you didn’t think he’d really call. He did, now what? Or maybe he’s your sister’s co-worker’s boyfriend’s brother and everyone thinks you’d be a perfect match.

So should you? YES! If you’re single and wanting to find someone special, every date invitation could be the ONE that changes your life. What else are you doing on Friday night anyway? Sitting at home checking Facebook isn’t getting you any closer to love.

If you’re worried about coming off as “too available”, stop it. Guess what! You’re single, and by definition you are available. There’s no shame in accepting a last minute date invitation. What if Mr Last Minute is the man of your dreams and you declined to meet him for a drink because he didn’t give you a week’s notice? What if you pretended you had plans when you were really staying home alone and missed out on what could have been an amazing relationship or at least an entertaining conversation and a free drink?

Don’t get the wrong idea though; I’m not suggesting you lower all of your standards, going on dates with every Tom, Dick or Harry who ask you out. I’m also not telling you to ignore your intuition and accept a date with a guy you just are not interested in at all, and I’m definitely not implying that there is anything wrong with staying home alone on a Friday night. But, when you’re unsure about a guy, when you just can’t tell if you’re a match or not or when you’re hesitating, these are the moments when putting yourself out there counts the most. These tend to be the dates that surprise you, sweep you off your feet and make you believe in love. Why? Because you have zero expectations.

That guy who seems semi-interesting and kinda cute online? He might be hilarious and gorgeous in person and it just doesn’t come across online. The guy you met at the bar, the one you’re tempted to write off as a player? He might want to get to know you as a person. Give him a chance, but more importantly give yourself a chance.

If he doesn’t creep you out, turn you off or annoy the hell out of you then yes, YES, you should go out with him.
