How Women Are Getting Dates With Their Crushes Using The Twitter ‘Valentine’s Day Challenge' getty

Should women ever ask a guy out? It's one of those questions for the ages that people of any gender could seemingly debate from now until the end of time. And when you're trying to figure out how to get a guy to like you, deciding whether or not to say something first can be way more stressful that you ever expected.

"Ladies, ask the guy you have a crush on to be your Valentine this year & tell him you’d like to go on a date with him. Tweet me a screenshot of his response."
