Ask Margot: Doesn't He Notice Me?

By Margot Carmichael Lester

Smiling woman/"Ask Margot: Doesn't He Notice Me?"Dear Margot,

For weeks now, I've been dropping subtle hints to a man I know from church in hopes he'll ask me out, but he hasn't. Short of coming out and telling him I'd like to go out with him (which I'm certainly not comfortable with!), what's a girl to do?

Dear Waiting,
As a modern woman, I like to think we've come a long way, baby, and that dating is better for us gals than it used to be. But when I hear a story like yours, I'm not sure. Just like we won the right to vote, we won the right to ask a guy out on a date. But somehow it often doesn't feel right to go into the romance ballot box and pull that lever. My Grandmother Memory always told me never to underestimate the ability of a man to ignore something staring him right in the face. I figure it went back to that hunter and gatherer stuff. You know, men like to hunt, so they're not used to catching things they can spot out in the open. (To keep reading, please click here)
