5 Reasons Girls Should Make the First Move – Own it, Ladies

The dating world is tough enough as it is now I have to approach the guy too? Keep reading to find out five reasons girls should make the first move.

I know what you’re thinking, “but that’s the guy’s job”. Let’s face it, ladies. This is 2017. It is now your job to put yourself out there and approach a guy. I know it can be scary and a little intimidating, but here’s why you should make the first move anyways.

1. What Do You Have to Lose?

You can’t lose something you never had. So what’s stopping you from getting out there and going for it? This guy can’t be any worse than your last bad relationship or the last bad date you went on. So what’s the worst thing that can happen – he turns you down? You’ll only feel stronger for trying and the best thing that can happen – it lands you a date next Saturday night!

2. You’ll Feel More Confident

If it works out and you end up with this guy, you will feel empowered! When other people ask how you met, you can scream from the rooftops, “I approached him!” Believe it or not, people will be impressed. It takes a lot of courage to approach a guy and guys especially appreciate it since it takes the pressure off them and for once. So if you want to feel incredible about yourself, make the first move.

3. And Confidence Increases Your Odds of a “Yes”

Confidence is very attractive to men. This will initially show the guy that you are not afraid to put yourself out there. Guys love when a woman is confident in their approach. That’s why you should make the first move. The more you do it, the better you’ll feel. The better you feel, the more dates you’ll go on. AKA, it’s more likely you’ll find the special guy for you.

4. The Go-Getter Attitude Will Trickle to Other Parts of Your Life

Going after what you want is an essential skill in life. So why not put it towards your relationships as well as your career? We’re told to go after what we want in our career aspirations all the time. And if you make the first move, you’ll find it to be easier and easier to take other tasks in your life head-on.

5. At Least You Tried

After everything, if you still get turned down, you can still say you tried. You’re still able to look back and say, “I put myself out there.” And that’s more important than anything else. Too many people regret their lives simply because they didn’t go after what they wanted. When you make the first move, that won’t be a regret you’ll have to live with.

If all else fails and you aren’t sure what to say, start with “You look really familiar”. He may not look familiar at all to you but it is a great pickup line that will automatically start the dialog. So next time you are out with your friends and spot a cutie across the room, go up with confidence and a smile and you will slay!
