    Girls, when a guy calls you to meet up after the first time you met, would you say yes to him if you wouldn't like him _that_ way, or you'd just make sure to cancel it somehow to avoid the misunderstanding?

    I met this amazing girl, but can't really figure her out. Of course i know she's single and we had an amazing time the first time we met. I'm planning to ask her out, but i'm not sure what to think even if she says yes. I mean you have to be really slow not to pick up on that, at least i'd like to think that it's pretty straightforward that you're asking her out, but still.. every girl is different. Somebody would just say yes because she doesn't want to hurt your feelings, or just naive/too slow not to pick up on the line, or really just wants to hang out (because let's say you like the same band). There's just so many possibilities. What do you think?

    You ask out a girl with the hopes of, at some point in the perhaps distant future, figuring her out. Having already figured her out by the time you ask her would defeat the purpose. I say go for it.

    One way or another, if you had an amazing time the first time you met, you will probably have an amazing time the next time you meet. I suggest you keep that in mind; don't specifically try to make it either a casual hangout or a date, but just try to have fun and see what happens. It's really easy to overthink this sort of thing.
