Will you come to the dance with me?
Possibly the most difficult sentence a boy will ever muster.
Most of the anxiety is due to the unknown response and if the lead up has only been in your head, then no wonder you are freaking out about the potential fallout.
Asking for what you want is nerve-racking at the best of times but it doesn’t have to be if you prepare for the ask.
The more generous you are the easier it is to elicit a yes when the time is right. Giving more than you ask for paradoxically puts the balance in your favour when you need it.
Give, give, give then ask.
