Your guy friend has been acting a little weird lately. Is it because he wants to ask you out but is scared? It is very likely that he is. Isn't that cute. Here we will tackle some of the ways he is reacting to his fear of asking you out.
Here are some reasons he might be a little slow to ask you out.
He doesn't want you to think he is creepy
Ever since you first met, things have been working out great. Flirting is showing positive signs but when it gets late he flips.
Is is like Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde?
Maybe he is.
On the other hand, another possibly is that he is just fishing up the courage to ask you out. To do that he need to find out how to get your number without being creepy-like.
Just ask him if he has a phone.
There, problem solved. He is now one step closer to really asking you out. Let's hope he doesn't blow his circuits by the time that happens.
He still thinks you are out of his league
He is putting you on a pedestal and its preventing him from asking you out.
Sometimes a guy will put off asking you out because he thinks your are way out of his league and trying would be futile, not to mention ruin the trust you had together as friends.
At this point, you need to do something fast to help him realize that there is gravity between you two and all he has to do is get close enough to attract. To do that you are going to need to spend more time with him to make it obvious that going out with you isn't just a dream.
He's a perfectionist
What you may have noticed about him by not is that he always has to get everything right, i.e. he's a perfectionist.
What's worst is that is need to make everything perfect is getting in the way of asking you out. At the surface he may be calm and collective. However, deep down where things fit perfectly into place, in his mind, things don't look so good. It's driving him crazy.
What can you do?
If you want him to succeed, key into his plans. Act as if you are part of a play he wrote, one without lines.
Although it sounds like a lot of trouble, you only have to put on the act until he is done asking you out and you say, yes!
Then, you can bring the chaos.
He won't know what to expect.
Let it rain.
He's scared of getting rejected
Not all guys have a perfect batting record when it comes to asking girls out. Maybe he is average or has never been said yes to in his entire life. The reason you are not getting asked out is that he is scared of getting rejected again.
At first you were kind of excited that he doesn't have an ex to compare you with. Lucky!
Then again, that may because he's never gone out with many girls in the first place.
If you think the guy you want to ask you out fits this description, you need to do what it takes to get him to take the leap of faith it takes to ask a girl like you out.
Bottom line: It's coming but you just don't know when...
It takes a guy a long time to work up the courage to ask a girl out, especially if he is so scared he is going to spill hit guts in front of you only to find out he is not worthy. The best thing you can do is let him try. He will get there some day. Have patience.
