So strange starting to go out to social events as a female: listening to bands, going do dinner clubs, hiking events. I’m really not that bad looking a girl – many have called me beautiful over my lifetime. So why are guys even shyer in their 40s and older than they were in high school? It often seems I wait and wait, then must approach them. Very strange.
I’d really just like to go out for a walk or coffee, but am rarely asked. I imagine it’s because maybe guys want more than coffee. So will I, some day. But not before I’ve had coffee and taken a few walks. It’s not that big a deal – come on please, just ask.
