    Some people think it's outrageous that girls should have to ask boys out. Yet others believe boys and girls are equal in terms of who asks who out. What do you think?

    If I was interested I would do the asking, but I'd be flattered if a girl plucked up the courage to ask me.

    I think girls need to be more confident, rather than wait for guys to come over them.

    But then again I love shy girls

    This is exactly my point. How can girls claim they want to be treated evenly if they want this as well!

    It's not that I expect them to ask me out, I'm just too shy to do it myself. That could be why I've never had a relationship -.-

    I usually have to do the asking as *most* girls would be traumatised if rejected, but some have asked me out in the past, and I was flattered to say the least.

    As for the poll, evenly split obviously, there are no rules in this scenario unless you're a complete clown.

    I think it should be the female person's responsibility to ask the male out.

    I would be very badly affectexd if I attempted to ask a female person out and they said no and also I would be traumatized for life were I to propse a marriage to a female person and they said no.

    So in conclusion given that we live in a progressive Western society it should normally the female person who asks out the male.

    That is all.

    squish.

    It's a bit over-idealistic to say that we have a completely gender neutral society when it comes to asking somebody out. I'm sure a lot of guys would feel strange after some time if they're going out with a girl who asked them out first, as that is generally seen as the guy's job - a bit demasculating. Though obviously nobody would complain straight away if they wanted to go out with that girl too, but most males have strange mentalities.

    If they're interested, they should make an obvious show of it instead od dropping subtle hints and waiting for the other to bite.

    Girls should ask guys out just as much. It's not right to put all the onus on the guy, we're just as afraid of rejection as girls, etc.
