After two weeks went by and I heard nothing from him, I prepared to move on, but suddenly it happened: “Hey, what are you doing this weekend?” We went out on our friend-inspired date, and then a couple more after that. If he’s even a little bit interested in you, getting a friend to tell him about your mutual attraction is a surefire way of getting a date.4. Kaela, Associate Editor This is one of those Mormon college traditions of almost mythical proportions: if you touch a guy’s elbow, he’ll magically fall for you. My sophomore year of college, my roommate and I decided to try it out.We debuted our experiment at a battle of the bands event and casually wandered the room wacking guys’ elbows as we passed by. But then we got smarter, and at a ward activity, we both made the goal to touch one of our FHE brothers’ elbows.
We went and ate expensive, delicious hamburgers, and then we saw a movie. But did he ask me out for a first date after I asked him out? Accidentally bump into a guy and then play the “shy” act.
As he was trying to recover from the unexpected hit, a look of surprise and confusion spread across his face (can’t really miss someone’s facial expression when you are about three inches away from it).
I scrambled to recover and stand on my own two feet while keeping the red shade of embarrassment on my face from growing any darker.
Are these really the time-honored secrets to dating? Be straightforward; guys like girls who ask them out.2.
