From the beginning of time, men have struggled to be clear with women.
As a guy, I understand that most of the confusion starts with us.
Dating is supposed to be exciting and engaging, but these days the romance and possibility of a date seem to be replaced with confusion.
Social media and texting has replaced interactions that used to be face-to-face.
If a guy asks to hang out, you are probably already thinking: Sometimes you just have to open up direct lines of communication, and ask the obvious question.
Chances are that when you do, both parties will be relieved.
Some of the more helpful ways to communicate this interest are to ask him questions about himself, make eye contact, take an interest in his interests, smile in response to what he says, and throw a flattering compliment his way every once in a while.If you find yourself in a situation where you are continuing to simply hang out with someone you’re interested in or are unsure about his intentions, give yourself the freedom to help him along.He might be slow in making his intentions known, but when a woman drops a hint about her own intentions, it can certainly signal to the man that it is OK to pursue.What Monica brings up in her article entitled “Reviving the Lost Art of Flirtation” rings so true to male ears. Letting him know that you enjoy talking to him and maybe even think he is attractive won’t kill the thrill of the chase.Flirting with a man is nothing more than dropping the hint that you are interested—or at least not horrifyingly intimidating to talk to. On the contrary, a little flirtation is the green light most men need to go ahead and pursue you.
