Going crazy figuring out how to deal with the male species? Play your cards right with some tips from not-so-average Joes.
IS IT OK IF A GIRL ASKS YOU OUT OR CALLS OR TEXTS FIRST?
Yes, that would be great. It shows how much confidence and security the girl has. Guys actually wonder why the whole “Maria Clara” thing still persists today. It doesn’t make the girl come across as cheap or desperate if she initiates anything innocent. A girl who can do this, I think, will be fun to hang out with.
IS IT OK IF A GIRL TELLS YOU THAT SHE LIKES YOU?
I guess it’s all right. I think she should play it out and see first if that’s a good move to do. It varies from guy to guy, situation to situation. It won’t freak me out or anything, although some guys may be taken aback.
HOW CAN A GIRL CATCH YOUR EYE?
Modesty with a hint of attitude tops off the perfect girl for me. In a group, the girl who charms and gets along with everyone will definitely stand out as well. Good looks or a nice smile could work too.
WHAT'S THE BIGGEST TURN OFF?
The biggest turn off would be a girl that has nothing to say… a girl without her own views and is unsure of herself. A girl can’t always agree with what I say or want to do. I am me and she is someone else who is unique. A girl shouldn’t be scared to speak up.

WHAT SHOULD A GIRL DO IF SHE LIKES YOU?
She should be confident. She should make herself available for a conversation or to hang out, but at the same time, not be too obvious. It’s not nice when girls throw themselves at guys. Discreet flirting is okay. She shouldn’t be the one who actually chases the guy. A lot of guys still want to be the ones to make the move.
