Yes, I go out with friends a lot... and most of them are female friends, it's not the type of thing I consider a date.
A date is when you take someone out to get to know them better.
I want to get to know her better.
If something clicks between us, all the better. If not, then I hope we become good enough friends where we go out just to hang out with each other.
If she ends up deciding that she doesn't want this to be a date, and wants to pay for half, I'm fine with that, too. But I'd rather it be a date.
I'm nervous and excited at the same time.
She says she has other things to do that day, so I'm hoping that it's not too much that she'll give me a raincheck... that would suck. So I also let her know that if she wanted to just go out for coffee, that'd be fine, too. But I want to treat her to dinner.
She loves sushi, and so do I, so I've asked her out for sushi.
I'm kind of scared that she may think that I want "something" in return for taking her out. I need to figure out a way to make her know that that isn't my intention; that I'd rather something develop a little more slowly. And I need to let her know right from the beginning. I guess the best course is to just tell her straight up and bluntly, "I'm not expecting anything from you in return."
Is that the best way to go about this? Those of you who are girls, would you like to be told that by a guy right from the start? Would it make you relax a little more?
