A question was posed to me earlier today about what a girl would say to being asked out on a date. My brother asked me (having been in a similar conversation on another chat room) what I would respond to if I was asked out on a date, giving a situation without history or back ground (writers pay more attention to such details, don't they?). I tried to get some background, and this is what he comes up with: a guy asks me out to dinner (not necessarily a date), alone, in a crowded restaurant. He asked me if I would: 1. Say no out right. 2. Say yes just to see if I liked him. 3. Say yes just because I pity him. I said 'say no out right'. He further explained to me that he had been 'chatting' with a girl who had said that all girls would say 2 or 3, and never 1. This is my question and the whole reason for this post: is this true? I can think of over half a dozen girls right now who would not, excluding myself. But what about other people? Guys too, would any girl you know say 'no'? Here I stand, confused about my own gender. Where has our decency gone?
