By Terri Trespicio for GalTime.com I’m no stranger to asking out dudes. I’ve done it — slipped my number into someone’s hand, slid a napkin-scribbled note onto a table, approached a man eating alone at a sushi bar, even walked straight up to a very hot guy in some kind of grounds crew and invited him to call me. But I’ll be honest, while it can be sexy and fun and a great experiment to honing and exploring your confidence, most of those dates never transpired.
