    There is this really shy guy who I like quite a lot. For the first time in my life I actually genuinely like a guy and could actually see myself in a relationship with him. He's the perfect guy really and we're very similar in regards to personality and morals. My friends say I'm shy in regards to members of the opposite sex, but this guy is even more shy than me.

    His friends keep asking me whether or not he has asked me out on a date yet and he hasn't, even though he's told them all and even my friends that he likes me. So I was wondering whether or not it would be acceptable for me to ask him on a date? I know it's he 21st century and all that, but I'm a traditional person and I'd like him to ask me first. But I genuinely feel like I'll be waiting forever for him to ask me. Part of me thinks he'd be really grateful that I've asked him, but then I really want him to come out of his shell and build up the confidence to do it himself.

    Do you think I should ask him? Or should I wait for him to ask me? It's been 3 weeks now of texting everyday and flirting via text, but whenever he drops a hint of possibly going out on a date he blatantly 'chickens' out of it and changes the conversation.

    Thanks x

    Just ask him for crying out loud. I would ask if I were him, but since I am not him - then there is no harm in just asking him. It's pretty clear you both like eachother. Get on with it. Post back later about your successful encounter.

    By all means. Yes - not only will this be beneficial for you, but for the rest of society (little bit OTT maybe?). If there happen to be many shy guys reading this, then I guarantee you'd have increased their confidence tenfold, as they'll know there are people like you out there willing to give them a chance!

    Edit: I see there's a lot of excitement already

    if you want to wait months, don't ask. If you want a relationship now, ask.
