I think I should ask out that UPS delivery man who brings a package to me every week.

So reliable. And those brown shorts!

Veronica, You're welcome. But kind of a shame, that being a gentleman, or lady, isn't the accepted norm. We are only treated with the level of respect we demand of ourselves. If I don't act as a gentleman, how can I expect to date a lady?

John, You're right again! Thanks, Veronica

Cathy, One of my long time friends, asked out her UPS guy that would frequent her job with packages. They went out and have been married for several years and have 3 children! He told her that he was glad she asked him out because they have a rule in the company that they can not ask anyone out or they will be fired!! I SAY, "GO FOR IT, CATHY! hehe!!!!! All the best, Veronicawave theheart

So many interesting perspectives! And thank you guys also for the warm welcome.


I also like the philosophy that if women ask out, it should something informal like coffee. In fact, I think most first dates should be informal like that, not just when we initiate. And yes, I'm also assuming the woman who asks the man has known him for a little while at least. I could never ask out a stranger.

Maybe you'd do beter with a real-live woman than with an imaginary ideal you call a "lady".


Putting a woman on a pedestal is cruel.

I'm not trying to put anyone on a pedestal. A lady is not an imaginary creature, and neither is a gentleman. I am talking about treating someone with the same respect I want for myself. There is no way to command respect without showing respect first.

I suppose that I would be flattered, though perhaps a little confused. It's a rather far-fetched that I could become aggravated. While decorum would have me initiate, I see the matter more as a guideline than a rule. I suppose that it would be no differently akward for women who turn men down than the other way around, though I suppose that a man would be less practiced at turning a woman down.

As for coffee, is that actually a date? I suppose that it would seem more to me that it is closer to a less subtle form of "hint".
