Hm, yeah, that makes sense. I'm probably reading too much into it, haha, thanks!

Re: Reasons not to ask someone out on a date?

Just something to consider - guys can be shy too. I was never the popular kid in school...nor was I the best looking in college. I had plenty of girl "friends", but none really wanted to take it to the next level (or at least that's the impression I always got).

Personally, I never had the courage to ask many girls out. And now I look back and wonder "what if". What if I did? Where would I be now?

Point is - I don't think it could hurt by abandoning the stereotype that the guy has to make the first move. Based on your posts above it sounds like he's been giving plenty of hints. He asked for your info, stays in touch, suggests wanting to hang out. That's potentially HIS way of asking you on a date. So i say make a move and set something up. There's nothing wrong with calling him to say "hey, I'm free on Friday night. Want to get together?"

Good luck!
