What's up, I just had one question to ask the ladies of OT. A couple months ago I was at this friend's birthday party, she was turning 22. One of her friends was 18 (i'm 20). What ended up happening was when the birthday went to watch Transformers, her friend and I basically talked for the whole night just by ourselves. So, about a week goes by and I run into her on my college campus (and i'm like, holy shit! you go to my college lol) and this becomes a common thing over the next 2 weeks. Turns out, I'm really really good friends with her best friend. I tell her best friend I'm considering asking her out to just a small little "get to know you" type thing, just something small that allows for more talking than anything else. She was like "OK, I'll tell her you're the shit next time I talk to her." She does that, I ask her out, and I get the fucking card of death "Oh, I'll call you." line. Her friend ends up telling me that because she doesn't know me as well, she's not too hot on the idea of going on a date. And I'm friends enough with our mutual friend where she'll tell me the straight truth, so I trust the "don't know you well enough" line is the truth and not a sugar-coated version of some other rejection. So, right now I'm just because isn't the point of going on a date to get to know the person? So my question is: Even when a guy and a girl hit it off well from the start (we got each other laughing even when we basically didn't know who each other was at the birthday party), and the girl's best friend tells you that this guy is just the shit, why do you girls just not take that one little risky step in just doing something with the guy to get to know them?
