How to make the first move when dating
I was very much starting fresh and embracing new experiences.
When I saw Wyle, I was immediately drawn to him. I'm pretty shy, and it's not really my nature to make the first move, but I decided since I was already so far out of my comfort zone with all the changes in my life, why not just go for it?
When we finally met, we went to a little barbecue joint and it wasn't awkward at all.
Like a lot of women, I complained [about being single], but now my theory is, "I was opposed to online dating for a long time, but I just wasn't having luck meeting people organically.
Here, readers share how taking a chance taught them something."I had just quit my job, moved to a new city, started my MBA, and broken up with my longterm boyfriend.I don't know what would have happened if I didn't make that first move, but I've learned that it's so important to go after what you want, not just in relationships, but with everything.""I was opposed to online dating for a long time, but I just wasn't having luck meeting people organically.I loved that Bumble was started by a woman who was sick of being bombarded with a lot of messages, and, for me, being able to reach out when I felt comfortable was a relief.But wait – by that logic, aren’t I saying that if a guy were interested, he would automatically write to you? Signifying you're interested in someone takes guts, but there's so much reward to be had.
