As a rule I don’t accept dates from people I’ve never met in person. But if I meet or have met someone, and they want to ask me out, they should.
That being said, don’t be offended or angry if I say no. Also, if you ask me out and I say no…you should accept it and stop asking. If we go on a first date and you don’t get a second date, you aren’t allowed to be mad at me for it.
Oddly, I rarely get asked out. The times I do, it’s usually by incredibly persistent guys who either don’t ever let up (ie, keep asking me out repeatedly even when I say no over and over), or get angry when I don’t accept a second date.
It would be nice if a nice, normal dude asked me out, and then didn’t act like a total dick if I don’t go on a second date. It would be nice if a nice, normal dude asked me out, and didn’t get mad if I say no.
This is a long-winded way of saying “I’m tired of being bullied by persistent/angry dudes who don’t get their way, therefore I almost never accept dates. But feel free to ask, I won’t be offended. It’s nice to be asked out as long as you’re nice if I turn you down.”
