These days, when we meet a new couple or hear that a friend has found love, there’s one question on our mind: did they meet online or via a dating app? A few years ago, that would have been a strange question, but now it’s super normal. We’ve all asked ourselves whether all guys want to online date or if some of them are open to meeting someone the old-fashioned way. Most of us have most likely online dated, but if we’re still single, we might prefer meeting people through work or friends.
“In real life, people are much more realistic about their chances and tend to go for people of about the same level. In real life, it’s much easier to make an impression with your personality than it is on dating sites.”
3 Do Guys Still Want To Meet Girls IRL?
As it turns out, yes, guys do still want to meet girls IRL, and as this Reddit post suggests, there are some good reasons for that. This guy totally sums up how tough online dating can be. We don’t always know how to make our personality stand out when we’re messaging or chatting with someone, and we might get rejected by someone for silly reasons. That just wouldn’t happen IRL.
Our society tends to think that guys are the ones who do the asking out and girls just can’t do it. That’s hilarious to those of us who have asked someone out and are now in a happy relationship because of it, or to those of us who know quite a few couples where the girl did the asking. It’s super outdated and old-fashioned to assume that the guy always has to be the one to ask the girl out.
“Getting rejected kinda gets us in this circular slump of “well, I wasn’t good enough for her. Will I be good enough for this girl? If I’m not good enough for her as well who will I be good enough for. “
“. This can be overcome, but I can definitely see how guys get caught in it, especially after multiple rejections in a row.”
We’ve asked ourselves the question if guys are nervous about asking a girl out probably too many times to count. This is something that we wonder if we like a guy and are waiting for him to ask us out or thinking about asking him ourselves. As this guy says in his Reddit post, guys do worry about rejection, and it can be tough to keep asking girls out when everyone keeps saying no.
1 Why Do Guys Get Scared To Show/Talk About Their Feelings?
If we hear that men don’t like commitment or cuddling, we also hear that they either don’t have emotions or don’t like to show and talk about them. Of course, it’s nuts to think that they don’t have feelings, but there’s this whole thing where we expect guys to be macho all the time and not emotional.
“Being emotional is to be vulnerable and to be vulnerable is to be weak, and a weak man is unattractive to both Men and Women. I’m immensely selective on who I allow to see me in a vulnerable state.”
As this guy shares in his Reddit post, guys do get emotional, but for him, he doesn’t want to seem weak because society thinks that’s just super uncool. It seems like a lot of guys feel that way and that definitely makes sense. and it’s also too bad. The best thing that we can do is when we find the right guy, make sure he knows that we’ll never think that he’s being weak if he shares his feelings with us. It’s totally normal to have emotions, of course. It’s just good to know the answer to this burning question that we all have (and all the other ones on this list, too).
We’ve all wondered if guys get nervous before going on a first date, and as this guy shared on Reddit, they absolutely do. This guy in particular worries about whether or not he and the girl will have anything to talk about it and if the conversation will flow. It’s interesting and comforting that he says that usually, there are enough things to talk about but it’s easy to think about the worst. That’s so true and so easy to relate to. We all feel that way before a date, and halfway through, whether it’s amazing or just decent, we at least are having a conversation.
