It felt awkward to continue on.)Right after I graduated college, I met this guy who was the weirdest person I ever met. I admired how he said whatever he wanted, dressed a little funky, and made me laugh by saying the strangest things about common objects like faucets, street signs, or jello.
This grand, social experiment came about due to a survey from 2017 that showed that out of 5,509 men who were asked; 95% of them were in favor of a woman taking the initiative to ask for their number or out on a date.
However, the sad part was that only 13% of women were willing to do it.

What if I told the handful of guys I had a crush on in my 20s that I used to like them?
I kept a distance from him so that he wouldn't see me as just another person who adored him. When he left that night, I realized, It was annoying when I admitted that I liked him that he said he liked me, too.
Though I'm in a relationship now and happy with my partner, I was beating myself up a little bit because I wish, back then, I wasn't so timid about sharing my feelings. Instead, it made me fill up with regret for years and years over not telling this guy I liked him when I did.
In my early 20s, I collected friendships like one would collect stamps so that I always had a tribe of BFFs to go to a bar with, see a movie with, or group text whenever I felt lonely.
I cared about making sure life never felt stale, and no Friday or Saturday night was left open on my calendar. If I liked you, I was usually too shy, too proud, and too awkward to let you know.
