I called her in the afternoon and she didn't pick up so I let the ball be in her court and waited for her response. While at dinner with a friend I got a text from her saying hey, what's up, we should hang out. So I call her back a few minutes later after we left and asked her out for Saturday. She said she was busy.

BUT. She didn't end it there. She offered another time, next week, and we settled on Wednesday. I figure I'll contact her on like Sunday or Monday to hammer out the details.

Best part was that my two female roommates (I was hanging out with them and one's boyfriend last night) both thought it was sweet and a nice touch that I actually called to set it up, since in their experience most guys my age just text
Nice!

You're Jack Tripper dude!

Well that was interesting. We got along quite well but it felt more like just hanging out with someone rather than a date. IDK. I don't think she's into me the way I'm into her :/ but I think I'll try for a second one. At least I finally nutted up and asked a girl out, with time I'll find one who says yes to a second date haha.

People don't always have instant chemistry - sometimes it takes time. My best friend almost didn't go out for a second date with her now husband! Sometimes things grow into something over time. Sometimes they don't - but sometimes they do!

See what happens when you have CONFIDENCE and just go for it?

Way to go man. It only gets easier from here.
