I get it It's scary You have to deal with the fear of being rejected There's also potential for it to be really awkward but honestly there are worse things in life Sure they might say no That's a bummer but it's not the end of the world At least you tried On the other hand let's pretend they say yes and you do go on the date and it's really awkward First of all take a deep breath Again this is not the end of the world Tell some stupid jokes Talk endlessly about your family First dates are supposed to be awkward And if it's really unfixable at least you tried You did better than the rest of us stuck at home Snapchatting the person they're talking to I'm not saying that we all need to go out and ask every person we've ever thought was cute out on a date I'm not saying that these dates need to be extravagant and meticulously planned out What I am saying is that really there's nothin you think the person you sit next to in calculus is cute ask them to study sometime Instead of Snapchatting your crush constantly go get ice cream Ask the person that you've always wanted to get to know better to hang out in person! What a conceptl g to lose If Do something fun and spontaneous Don't worry if it's awkward Don't get mad over Instagram likes and Snapchat best friends Life is too short Plus you never know what will happer Who knows? That random date you ask someone on might be the start of a beautiful relationship WORTH THE READ BC THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT httpstcombLnvOGrcj Meme
