To Ask Or Not To Ask, That Is The Question
What’s up, readers. Instead of waiting all day for my brain to conjure up the next great American post, I decided instead to roll with this real quick topic we can wax poetic on in the c-section. Here it is:
One of my rules I apply when it comes to approaching a woman is I never ask whether or not she has a boyfriend. Now if she has a ring on her finger, I’m going to assume she’s already spoken for, and of course, if there is a man who is standing close to her, I’m going to assume they’re together. But if I see a woman walking down the street or waiting in line to get something to eat, or at the bar chilling with her homegirls or with herself, I’m walking up to her and talking to her like she’s as single as a dollar bill.
This may or may not be the case, but I figure if she is in a relationship (or even if she isn’t and is just saying so as a defense mechanism) then she’ll tell me straight up. Essentially, it’s not my job to ask if she’s in a relationship, it’s her job to tell me.
But my other reason for not asking a woman I approach whether or not she is in a relationship is because if she isn’t, she doesn’t want to talk about why. No woman wants to be reminded of her single status, even if she’s happily so.
Thus, I approach all women under the assumption they are single unless there’s a tell tale sign they are not. But that could just be my thing. What do you all think?
